Upland Infinite Wisdom Tripel Release Event Info
To celebrate the release of Upland’s specialty Belgian-style ale, Infinite Wisdom Tripel, Upland and the Bluebird are bringing world renowned artist Norton Wisdom to Bloomington to perform with local favorites The Twin Cats and The Main Squeeze.
Norton Wisdom is a good friend of the brewery, and his work is featured on the label of our Infinite Wisdom Tripel, as well as our Dantalion Dark Wild Ale and Double Dragonfly Imperial IPA.
An art show featuring Wisdom’s works will be held at the Root Cellar in Bloomington on the night of Friday April 22nd. Wisdom will be there to discuss his works, meet his fans, and sign prints and original works that will be available for purchase.
The excitement of Wisdom’s work is not only in the final product, but in the process, which you’ll be able to see first-hand the following night, Saturday, April 23rd at the Infinite Wisdom Tripel Release Concert. Wisdom will be painting original art to the sounds of The Twin Cats and The Main Squeeze at the Bluebird. Doors open at 9pm, and music starts at 10:30.
Wisdom will paint several different pieces on stage, where he is influenced by the energy of the music, the musicians, and the audience. He sometimes starts with a blank canvas, while other times he’ll mold his last painting into something entirely different. Either way, once the original is changed into something new and different or the canvas is erased, only a digital photo will remain, so only the people at the show are able to see the original piece. Cover for the show is $5.
This concert the official release party for our Infinite Wisdom Tripel, which you can probably tell was named in honor of the artist whose work graces the label. This limited-release specialty beer, which is only available for a short time each spring, is a strong Belgian-style ale that has a long fermentation period using classic Belgian yeasts. The nose contains banana and citrus notes while a complex fruitiness and light warming sensation are experienced upon tasting. Like many Belgian Tripels, Infinite Wisdom is strong but delectably drinkable.
