BLOOMINGTON, IN

Bloomington, Indiana favorite, Upland Brewing is set to hit the Chicago market by early October, helping warm Hoosiers' craft beer hearts all over the city. Of course, their aim isn't just to ignite nostalgia for IU grads, but to let all Chicagoans in on a little something: Indiana is brewing. Here in Chicago, we're all well familiar with the expansive 3 Floyds portfolio and occasionally see the likes of Sun King or ShoreLine around the city. Indianapolis' craft scene is booming and the Hoosier state has plenty of reasons to be proud. One of them, Upland Brewing Company has, until now, remained nearly hidden from folks in Chicago. One of their brewers, Patrick Lynch, caught up with us to discuss their flagship and experimental brews, what it's like brewing in a college town, and what we can expect as they take on the Windy City.
