Crown Beer Fest 2013
Figure Eight 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, and Backroad), helping to make this area a craft
brew destination. Perhaps one day there will be signs along our
highways stating "Craft Brewery Trail", similar to the "Bourbon Trail"
in Kentucky or the "Whisky Trail" in Scotland.
Figure eight is a knot used in sailing and rock climbing. Aside from good beer, rock climbing is one of our passions and this knot is used to tie the safety rope to the climber's harness. An aesthetically pleasing knot, when turned on its side it also looks a bit like the symbol for infinity. So sticking with our passions, we hope to take Figure Eight Brewing to infinity and beyond! (Or at least to the point where we are producing some very tasty and satisfying brews :-)
Our philosophy is simple. Life is short and one never knows how long each of us has. If we wait too long to pursue our dreams, then we may never have the opportunity to do so. As John Barrymore once said - "A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.". Taking on the challenges of pursuing our dreams often begs the question of why? When asked why he climbed mountains, Mallory once said - "So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself, upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for."
So we here at Figure Eight Brewing hope that everyone is enjoying life and that our brews might further that goal - cheers!
