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.

3.83/5 rDev -3.5%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$
Atmosphere: The indoor brewpub portion is way too tiny for the kind of traffic Upland gets on a regular basis- weeknights and weekends included. Seating area is too small, leaving chairs cramped up against the table and you always feel like you're in the way of people seated around you. Due to the small size and relative overcrowding, the place is very loud. Distracting TVs in the corners on the restaurant floor detracts from the atmosphere.
Quality: Great food and great beer. Upland's beers might not be critically acclaimed, but fresh from the tap, they are outstanding.
Service: Due to the cramped quarters, it's easy to be forgotten about.
Selection: Great food and beer selection. Generally there are about 6 different Upland beers on tap, including special seasonals and the rare brewpub only special. No guest taps. Growlers, six packs, and bombers to go.
Food: Good menu ranging from standard pub fair to more gourmet options. Several menu items feature locally grown vegetables or meats. Beer battered options also available.
Value: Decent prices on pours (ranging from 12 to 36 oz, plus pitchers). Food pricing in the standard brewpub range of $10-15 per entree. Would definitely recommend visiting this place if you're in Bloomington, but the outdoor beer garden (which I never had a chance to visit due to the timing of the school year) might be a better atmosphere.
