They had a couple beers that were okay. The veggie platter looked like the vegetables had been cut 2 days ago. The bacon on a stick was good but definitely closer to a chunk of pork belly. No gluten free options either if you have any sensitive people in your party.

Super service, and very friendly place with good beer (the Oatmeal Stout was terrific) and good food. A group of 15 of us showed up around dinner-time and staff were more than willing to move tables around to accommodate all of us. As the place emptied out a bit after dinner and before the night crowd came, the staff let... More

After eating a large meal in downtown Valparaiso, my son and I wanted "a nightcap" before heading back to our hotel. We were pleased that this brewpub was a few blocks away, and even more pleased that we could order flight-sized glasses of as many of the beers as we wanted. Just right! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, and... More

For a Brewing company, it is an interesting concept for a restaurant. The menu changes and brews are great. It's hard not to try all the brews they offer.

We went to Figure 8 on a beautiful Saturday evening and sat in the outdoor patio area. They are dog friendly and the staff couldn't be more sweet with out pooch. The interior is comforting and welcoming. There is an area with a couch to hang out or enjoy your time at the bar or short pub tables. The outdoor... More

Stop by while visiting the very nice downtown district of Valpo. We tried several of their brews - all good. We also shared an appetizer of chips with beer cheese and other toppings. Very unique and quite good! Good service nice decor.

Solid selection of beers. They do have some very strong double IPAs. The beers are overall pretty good. The atmosphere didn't quite do it for me. Food selection is not anything special. Worth a try if you are a beer lover.

Service excellent, this time, food average. This place is so up and down. I used to go a lot. Then they started the rotating cook thing and 5th time I would go new cook. The menu would change and the food would be bad. Everything is on beer bread, I don't beer so most of the menu is a no... More

The beer was okay. It was nothing I would go out of my way to get again. If you like hops, then this would be your place. All the beers were pretty hoppy and lacked other flavors.

We went to 3 microbreweries in this town and this was by far our least favorite. We got their flight and didn't really like any of the beer.
