Dining Guide: Eighth State Brewing

Untraditional brewing meets exotic seasonal fare at Eighth State Brewing

If a flight of naturally blue, green, and orange beers sounds intriguing, you’d best make a beeline for Eighth State Brewing. Call them untraditional, but Cameron Owen and Adam Cribbs let their brewing skills go wild in the former Claussen Bakery space, in taps filled with off-beat libations such as Blue Skies (sour ale fruited with blueberries and passionfruit) and Abiogenesis (Imperial stout with Tahitian vanilla and banana).

Also on the menu are smoothie-style hard seltzers infused with creative combinations of exotic ingredients (Morello cherry, raspberry, and lemon, anyone?). Savory accompaniments run the gamut from seasonal salads to stecca sammies.
