Their brews range from good to excellent. Their standard IPA, lager, and wheat are very drinkable. You can get a full sample of each of their brews on tap for $1/ea. If you want a little taste, they'll let you try it before you buy.

The location is a small tap room, but they are moving to a larger location this spring. I visited 6 mo after they opened, and now almost 3 years in operation they are doing well.

They love to talk about their beers. The prices are reasonable. It is very clean. While it is just a tasting room (no food for the most part) they do offer you pretzel rods.

I've taken growlers home and not had an issue. They are sealed well and filled to the top so they keep longer. I will admit that a fresh fill would be nice, but I haven't had issues. I could see how ones that might have been sitting around longer may be less than fresh.

With the change of Indiana liquor laws (now allowing wineries and breweries to sell their product on Sundays), my bro-in-law and I have made Figure8 a weekly (Sunday) ritual. We stop is for a few pints, and take a couple of Growlers home with us. Off-Width and Snake Pro (two double IPAs) are my two fav's. Just tried their barley wine last Sunday (named Jumbo Love). WOW....devine. I'm not normally a fan of barely wine, but Jumbo Love is delicious. Although they do fill their Growlers ahead of time (they swap yours for a full one), the taste has always been excellent, despite the fact they they may have been filled days earlier. A great local place, with great beer. Nice that they have pint glasses full of pretzel rods to munch on too (free of charge). I think offer some food too, not sure. The "tasting room" is a fairly small place, with not much in terms of "ambience", but it's super clean, has great beer, free preztels, pinball machine, wi-fi, music, and you can take home a free grain bag if you want. As "Arnie" said....I'll be back!!

Stopped in last nite for a couple pints and couple growlers. I like supporting the new breweries, and enjoyed their creative beer names and upcoming labels (bottling line coming in the future)... they had nice variety (8 on tap) incl nice Pale Ale, a so-so IPA and an nice double IPA. Beers were all drinkable, but not outstanding. Small place but nice local place for grabbing a pint with friends.

Their growler situation, however, left a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively and literally). They only fill their label, because they do not tap fill upon request. The growler I got was pressure filled over 10 days from purchase date. Giving benefit of doubt, we took it home for dinner, and sure enough, though it was OK, for sure not as fresh nor tasty as the two pints of same brew I just drank at location.

Good stop if you live in the area. Not for take home.
