Notes: Our Beer
We’ve produced quality beers over the years by challenging and refining our craft, not by appeasing trends. Discerning taste, rolled up sleeves, and upholding our uniquely progressive ideals ensures our drinkers will appreciate Upland beers as much as we do. Many of our brews are unique twists on traditional recipes, while others are creations of our own imaginations. In 2006, we traded a few cases of beer for barrels from our friends at Oliver Winery, and we haven’t stopped innovating with sour beers yet.

Our Food
Our brewpub fare brings the best that the land has to offer, crafted and served by the people who are downright close to the salt of the earth. Chef-created, seasonal menus filled with locally sourced ingredients and just-from-scratch recipes reflect the same artisan approach we bring to our beers.

Our Locations
At our brewpubs and tasting rooms in Bloomington, Columbus, Carmel and Indianapolis, flavor, discourse, debate, laughter, and conversation flow as freely as our beer.

Our Community
We believe in treating each other like family, so we treat our customers like family. We’re committed to making our beer, community, environment, and Upland community better. We take care of the land because it takes care of us, adhering to sustainable practices from energy and water efficiencies to strict recycling practices.

I visited the Columbus, IN location with my family and brother while traveling in IN to see my sister. This location is a cool restored building with clean, industrial feel inside. It was an old pump house along the river on the edge of Columbus- very picturesque and the food and beer did not disappoint! I think there were 7 beers in my flight so I got a good sampling of their offerings and liked all of them. What a cool location for a brewery. Well done!

This is a pretty good spot. It has good ambiance and you can see the brewery through glass walls. The food is pretty good and the beer is delicious.

Great location, very good atmosphere. I enjoyed it much more than the taprooms in the Indy area. Great sour beers on tap, even for someone who usually doesn’t enjoy the style. Food was pretty good too.

Upland isn’t an IPA, Pale Ale or dark beer establishment, although those beers are passable or better. It is, however, the place to go, perhaps in the entire Great Lakes region, for sour ales, with a strong selection of innovative and nearly always very successful sours on tap, and available in growlers as well as (very expensive) bottles for takeaway. Can- and bottle-packs of many other beers are also for sale.

Food is of the quality and variety expected from a gastro pub.

Which brings me to the last point. Upland is not a spot for drinking, really, as there is only a tiny bar in what is primarily a restaurant. So go, have a meal and a couple of beers, and purchase many more beers for later enjoyment.

I enjoy sour beer, but I just can't seem to make this place work. I enjoyed the taproom, and Bloomington is a lovely college town, but I just can't. If you enjoy their beer, this place can't be missed.

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
