3.76/5  rDev -5.3%

A-I grew up in the area and have always loved this place. Inside is nice but can get a bit noisy during busy times. The outdoor seating is a great option and has been expanded in recent years.

Q-The beer is good but not as aggressive as many craft brewers are going. I find that the bigger and more limited they go, the more I like the beer. Their year rounds are well made, enjoyable beers but the craft scene has skewed my palate so far to the hops that I generally look for more. I understand that they have some new releases coming out that I look forward to as well.

S-This is tough. It varies so much by the server. I've batted 50/50 here. Sometimes service is top-notch but others I've had some of the worst service ever. I hope they work this glitch out in their hiring process because it really makes them look bad.

S-There are generally 5-8 beers on tap. I find it alternates between my wanting EVERY beer on the list and my wanting only one of them. I think more taps and rotating specialty beers would be appreciated.

F-Oh boy. This is the only brewery (except for Revolution in Chicago) that I've ever gone to for the food. I'm not a french fry guy, but Upland makes them the best and they're always perfect! If you can't make a crispy fry, close your kitchen (other guys). Thanks, Upland! Other than that, I tend to get burgers and assorted pub grub. Entrees cost more but they always look good. The nachos aren't to my liking (melted shredded cheese) but everything else is always phenomenal!

V-Beer is reasonably priced, especially carryout bombers (compared to store prices). Food is sometimes, in recent years only, a dollar or two more than I think it should be but is worth it.

O-I always go when I'm back home. Love this place and feel bad if my review brings down their score. Always a favorite for me even if the numbers don't show it.

Went here to get some carry-out while in Bloomington.

Atmosphere- Nice atmosphere. Not a lot of parking making it more exclusive. It's got a rustic feel but still modern. The patio is great to sit out and have a tasty beer.

Quality- The beers are all pretty solid but none that are the best in my book. I didn't have any of the food but it smelled great and I look forward to trying it next time I'm down. The seasonal beers are usually better than the lineup and are enticing to keep you asking what's next.

Service- Ok service. There is only a handful of servers and they didn't seem to be the most attentive but still polite.

Selection- The usuals are always on tap with one or two seasonals/specialties that make upland a nice Indiana brewery.

I didn't have a chance to try the food but I'm not going to knock the food one way or another.

The value is good with growlers for less that $16 a fill and well priced pints for really good beer.

I recommend this brewery and I would probably satisfied if it were my town brewery.

Upland Brewing Company has a nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. You can get about 8 or so Upland beers on tap at any given time, including seasonal releases. There is a full menu and the food is pretty solid. High marks for counter-pressure growler fills and they will even give you a free 12oz beer while you wait! Definitely worth checking out if you are in Bloomington.
