Brewery: Upland Brewing Company, Bloomington, Indiana
About the Brewery: Upland Brewing Company has been brewing Ales and Lagers in Bloomington, IN since 1998, making beer in a time-honored fashion that puts their care and dedication to the craft on full display. Above all, they make beer that’s true: to its heritage, to its ingredients, to itself. The name Upland refers to the landscape of Southern Indiana, where the brewery is located. The Norman and Crawford Uplands are the heavily wooded hills and hollows that were never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The Uplands are beautiful, and they bred independent thinkers and artisans, with a strong connection to their land and their community. Indiana University adds a progressive, tolerant, intellectual aspect to the town. The result is a heady mix of cultures and contradictions: a place where everyone can feel at home. A place that is equally respectful of tradition and open to change. Upland’s beer is representative of this place.
