Upland Brewing Co. celebrates 20 years and still pushing innovation

Upland Brewing Co. was founded in 1998 in Bloomington, Indiana.  They've grown over the years and opened several other taprooms as well as splitting the breweries for their clean and sour beers.  We're joined this week by Adam Covey, Matt Wisley, and Eli Trinkle to talk about what's going on in Indiana beer.  In addition to their clean beers like NE IPA and their popular Champagne Velvet Pilsner, Upland also offers a variety of sour beers and they've recently started experimenting with kombucha.  Adam shares some info on their sensory training program, a very important part of keeping the same standards across all of their taprooms, and how it's important to be a part of the communities you serve.
