Came here to pick up my Sour Reserve bottle. Small inside with chairs and sofa. Seating for about 15 or so people. Very colorful like a quaint coffee shop. Staff are very polite and helpful. They gave me some great tips for bottle shops and a great beer bar in Muncie. I was also able to pick up a few Lambics from them, which was a pleasant surprise. They have a nice selection of upland shirts and other related items. This is a place to stop by if your in the mood for a quick beer. Not really set up to stay long. Staff enjoyed talking beer and this is always a plus.

Vibe: Pretty cool, very small place. Not really conducive to staying and having a beer or two. More of a pickup a growler place.

Quality: Despite the beer being good, the neighborhood and building is dumpy. Didn't want to leave my car outside too long.

Service: The bartender was great. Friendly, nice and quick. The best part about the place.

Selection: Standard lineup. Nothing unique.

Went here to turn in my entry for the 2014 UpCup.

Atmosphere- Quaint atmosphere. Very close to the college and very college-esk It's got a rustic feel and is pretty small. It would be a cool place to study and drink a pint if there were more room.

Quality- The beers are all pretty solid but none that are the best in my book. No food at this location but a good tasting room none-the-less. The seasonal beers are usually better than the lineup and are enticing to keep you asking what's next.

Service- Fine service. There is only one bartender but he was polite.

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

No food at the tasting room.

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

I recommend this place for good draft beer but wouldn't be my first choice over flat 12 or Sun King.
