THR's Top Beers from Upland's Sour Wild Funk Fest

INDIANAPOLIS, IN

We recently attended Upland Brewing’s Sour Wild Funk Fest in downtown Indianapolis featuring over 50 sour and wild breweries and at least 150 brews ranging from puckeringly tart to mildly funky. While it would have been impossible to sample every beer poured during the festival, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 beers that left a mark.

BACK OF THE YARDS, CHICAGO

Straying far from the beaten path is Whiner Beer Co. in Chicago's Back Of The Yards. Seconds upon arrival, it's clear there's something special happening at this South Side brewery. Located in The Plant–Chicago's greenest collection of businesses under one roof–founders Brian Taylor and Ria Neri are at the helm of the city's most unique brewery.
