Open for exploration

Located next to our Bloomington Brewpub, the Wood Shop is a 21+ over, state-of-the-art production facility, tasting room, & event space where our sour ales are brewed, wood aged and packaged. Inspired by the places where craftsmen create and tinker, The Wood Shop offers the ideal setting for our brewers to explore with new flavors, blends and unique local ingredients.

Whether you’re a sour beer lover or ready to be converted, take a brewery tour like no other to learn how these blended works of art are made and sample some of our 10 sour ales on tap. Many of these unique beers can’t be found anywhere else.


In 2006, we traded beer for wine barrels from our friends at Oliver Winery, and haven’t looked back. At the Wood Shop, you’ll taste the evolution with 10 rotating sour beers on tap, including some of our brewers’ experimental sours. Mix it up with 10 additional taps of Upland favorites such as Wheat Ale, Dragonfly IPA, Coastbuster and more. Here, you can also purchase newly released and vintage sour bottles, even on Sundays.
