This tiny depot is the Indianapolis Proxy for selling Upland beers only.
Size and atmosphere of a Starbucks, with 8-12 Upland beers for sale. Growlers, bottles, pints.

If you're already driving by this place on your way to Broadripple or downtown, its worth the stop to see if they have any lambics laying around.

The staff is helpful and courteous. There are a few younger female employees that are familiar with Upland beers and not much else. There is nice orange haired pierced faced guy who is wise to both Upland beers as well as other worldly beers. He's excited to talk about beer.

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.
