Good beer made by good people. That’s what Upland is all about, and these are the good people behind the bottles. Our team is filled with inventive, inspiring, kind, and funny people who work in the production areas, the kitchens, the taprooms, and the offices. We can’t list them all, but they know who they are. Instead, we’ll list a few key contacts that you might want to know, and encourage you to stop by an Upland location to meet the rest.
