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 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.

Beer lovers everywhere are invited to tour the Wood Shop. You can go behind the scenes to learn how these blended works of art are made and sample some of our 10 sour ales on tap—many of which are exclusive. It’s the largest offering of Upland sour ales anywhere and a sensory experience not to be missed.

Enjoy Sour Saturdays at Upland Locations

Whether you’re a sour beer lover or ready to be a convert, join us every Saturday to experience our widest selection of rare, limited sour bottles across our locations including the Bloomington Brewpub, Columbus Pump House, Carmel Tap House, Broad Ripple Tasting Room, and West Side Beer Bar.

We’re opening our cellar doors and increasing our sour selection to over 20 options, up from the typical 2 dedicated sours on tap. Visit our restaurants or tasting rooms to purchase a glass or bottle from our exclusive sour Saturday bottle list. Customers can enjoy specialty sour ales including fruited, oak-aged, and collaboration projects made with our friends at Cascade Brewing and Cigar City Brewing.

These wood-aged beauties are intentionally tart with complex flavors that will turn a regular weekend day into an exploration of this unique beer style. Treat your curious taste buds with new varieties or select from tried-and-true favorites. Prepare to be delighted by sour samples that will be periodically brought out to tables throughout the day.

If you fall in love with a sour that day or you’re just looking to drop by for your sworn favorites, we’ve got you covered. The expanded selection will be available for carryout so you can enjoy these rare ales all week long with family and friends.

Midwest, East Coast, and beyond

Find select Upland sour ales in bottle shops and bars across the Midwest and in new distribution areas on the east coast (Boston, New York City, D.C., Philadelphia, Portland, ME), in California, Michigan, Texas, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

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.
