Over 10 years ago, our friends at Upland Brewing Company began experimenting with sour beers with a few wine barrels they had traded for from a local winery. Sheer curiosity and a passion for innovation spurred them to continue brewing and blending, each batch unique and exciting. Now, with a newly constructed dedicated sours facility, Upland is able to offer select sours outside their home state of Indiana and we couldn't be more excited. In fact, folks from Upland will be in Chicago to share these sours with a handful of events starting February 28th. Check them out below and come hang!
Tuesday, February 28 | 6-9pm
The Green Lady | 3328 N Lincoln Ave.
Beer is best enjoyed among friends. That's why we're joining two of the most renowned sour beer programs in the country for a night of sour ales at The Green Lady. Enjoy offerings from both Upland Brewing Company and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales on Tuesday, February 28. Members of Upland's brewing team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about the brewing process, wild fermentation or Indiana basketball.
