Visitors to Bloomington would be well advised to take this over Crazy Horse. Remarkable that a couple of blocks and you feel you are out of town. This felt quite removed from Bloomington's quite lively downtown area and one could park right in front. Quite new inside, light airy tones if a little lacking in atmosphere. There is an outdoor area for the intrepid who do not fear biting insects. Surprisingly empty. I cannot speak to the whole range, but I found the IPA to be quite a reasonable effort - not one that I would take growlers home or make long pilgrimages for but it demonstrated the brewer knew how to make beer. No guests on tap so limited in that regard but to be expected.

Scores based on visit to Wood Shop, across the parking lot from the original pub.

Thoroughly enjoyed Upland

Outside biergarten set up is awesome for the college town. Nice flowers and seating outside. Quick service for the outside seating

Inside is a modern somewhat industrial look with clean wood and metal. Bar is a decent size and plenty of seating.

Staff is super relaxed, friendly, and helpful.

I've only gotten to eat once since I normally am rushed to grab my lambic allotment and leave. Had the fish and chips in my stop today. Solid pub food.. loved the beer battered breading and fries were nice. Good tartar sauce too. Service is quick and efficient.

Overall just a clean beautiful place to have a beer. Enjoy the outside of you can. It's tough to beat this place if you're having a couple afternoon drinks and lunch.

Probably about 8 taps. If you're lucky you will catch them at a time when a sour is on tap. I got to have the Cauldron sour.

Great job Upland

Very casual atmosphere, with casual staff and good food. However, I was disappointed with the tap selection: eight lines is nothing to scoff at, but there were few offerings that one couldn't pick up at the store in individuals and try in the comfort of your own home.

Very nice, clean, large, open brewpub. Light years nicer than the Indy tasting room.
Food was great. Good selection and quality stuff.
Service was just ok. Waited a bit to place an order and to have the waitress come by again. They delivered our food to the table behind us at first. Those folks (for some reason) didn't immediately send it back and rather had the waitress come back to take it away a minute later. We watched the waitress carry the plates back to the kitchen and then immediately pop out again with them and carried them to our table.
