Great news here: it looks like Upland Brewery, out of Bloomington, IN will be expanding into the Cincinnati/NKY market (via Stagnaro). See the relevant details below and keep an eye out at your local better beer stores. Hopefully, in addition to the regular releases, we’ll see some of their lambics on the shelves around here…
Cincinnati, OH [9/26/12] – Upland Brewery is pleased to announce its expansion into the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky marketplace. The Bloomington, Indiana based craft brewer, founded in 1998, has a loyal following that rivals its hometown college basketball team. Many of Upland’s award winning brews are unique twists on traditional recipes, while others are products of their own imagination. Upland strives to maintain a strong sense of community and prides itself on its sustainability efforts. Ingredients and materials used in the brewery are sourced locally whenever possible, and energy saving initiatives such as a solar water-heating system are utilized.
Upland Brewing Company has partnered with Stagnaro Distributing for distribution into both the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky markets. Initial offerings will be Upland Wheat, Dragon Fly IPA and a compelling seasonal rotation. The brewery’s flagship, Upland Wheat, is a classic Belgian Witbier. Upland Wheat is the best selling beer brewed in Indiana. The Dragon Fly IPA is a well- balanced beer with exceptionally floral nose, a crisp taste of hops and a strong malt backbone. Dragon Fly IPA and Upland Wheat, in both draft and bottles, will be offered starting October 1. A limited amount of Oktoberfest in draft only will also be available. The first full production seasonal into this market will be Harvest, and will be available in November.
