Upland Brewing Co. (Bloomington)

We’ve been brewing ales, lagers, and sours in Bloomington, Indiana since 1998. Many of our brews are unique twists on traditional recipes, while others are products of our own imaginations. We’re proud to say that several of our beers have brought home national and international medals and awards, but what we really care about is brewing the kinds of beer we like to drink, and providing a fresh local option to our communities. It never hurts to get a pat on the back, though! Along the way, we’ve made lots of friends and drank our unfair share of good beer, all while trying to do good in our communities and do well as a craft brewery.

The name “Upland” comes from the Norman and Crawford Uplands, the term geologists gave to our area of southern Indiana, which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The raised highlands or “uplands” remained untouched, resulting in a region of rugged, heavily wooded hills and hollows. The land was beautiful but poor, and life was not easy for early settlers. This adversity bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. Our approach to brewing beer honors the spirit of these people and this place.

So that’s our story in a nutshell, but if you want to really know what we’re about, drink our beers! To adapt an old saying, a taste is worth a thousand words. You can find our beer in bottles and on draught throughout Indiana, Louisville, KY, and southern Wisconsin. Also stop in at our Bloomington Brew PubIndy Tasting Room, or find us a festivals and other fun events.
