Figure 8 Brewing is a small craft micro brewery situated in the city of Valparaiso (Vale Of Paradise) Indiana about 60 miles south and east of Chicago. While we are only just getting started, we are excited to join the other craft brewers in north west Indiana (Three Floyds, Shoreline, Crown, Back Road, and Brickworks), helping to make this area a craft brew destination.
The initial lineup, from left to right:
- First Ascent (A Belgian Honey Lager) - brewed with an overabundance of local light clover honey and cascade hops, this brew has a crisp citrus/clover nose with a clean malty slightly bitter finish and a hint of toast
- Ro Shampo (Imperial Red Ale) - brewed with four varieties of hops and a blend of 6 malts, this is well balanced with a nose that evokes thoughts of toffee, fine whisky, and cotton candy while finishing with the satisfaction of a taffy apple on a warm autumnal day
- Camp 4 Brown Ale - a hazy Northern England Nut Brown Ale style with notes of chocolate, coffee au lait, caramel, and perhaps a hint of a turtle sundae
- Rye Knot - a complex rye based brew somewhere between a baltic porter and a stout with a rich black head, hints of licorice, oak, cognac, and a light woodsy bitter finish
All brews are hand crafted from natural ingredients, unfiltered and unpasteurized for a healthier, fuller bodied beer rich with essential vitamins, flavonoids and antioxidants.
