Blended works of art

10 years in the making.

Ten years of dedication to creating world-class sour beers that are innovative and honor traditional Belgian brewing techniques have led to this moment. What started as a passion project in 2006 has evolved into artistically crafted beers that push boundaries and please palates.

With our new sour brewery, the Wood Shop, we’ve been able to scale up production and distribution of our award-winning program. Here, we’re continuing to innovate in traditional styles and experimental small batches while creating memorable beer experiences with new American sours. Some recent releases include:

  • Crimson: This beer is an American take on a Flanders-style Red Ale. The Upland twist on the classic style was to make a stronger version, and to age the beer in previously used bourbon barrels rather than white oak. Long fermentation reveals aromas of plum, red wine, cherry, and hints of charred oak.
  • Prim: Released just in time for the holidays, Prim is our base sour aged on an enticing combination of plum and cardamom. It’s tart, fruity, herbaceous, and refreshing.  Experience aromas of plum and cardamom are followed by tart and fresh fruit flavors after aging in wine barrels for 4-6 months.

STEP INSIDE THE WOOD SHOP

Located next to our Bloomington brewpub, the Wood Shop is the state-of-the-art production facility and tasting room where Upland’s sour ales are brewed, wood aged and blended into the sour beers you can now enjoy at your favorite bars and bottle shops.

Inspired by the places where craftsmen create and tinker, the Wood Shop is the ideal space for our brewers to continue to push the boundaries in what’s possible in sour beers. This includes a number of new and previously made sours that are available in select distribution areas as well as our one-of-a-kind blends available to our Secret Barrel Society and through our online lottery.
