We have a kick ass staff at Upland made up of beer loving people from all over. Our diverse group of brewers, chefs, packaging crew, servers, and more bring you the craft beer and food you love every day. Here’s your chance to go behind the scenes and get to know the folks in the Upland family. First up in the series is our hard working packaging crew!


This week get to know Joe Tarnow our fearless leader of the packaging crew.


Where are you from? Valparaiso, Indiana


How long have you been with Upland? 3 years


Favorite beer? Coastbuster is the best beer we make, hands down. But Dragonfly is my new PBR. I drink a lot of it.


Pizza or Burger? nothing will ever beat homemade pizza. We’re serious about pizza in my house.


Favorite tunes for the bottling line? We blast music all day everyday and everyone gets a turn. It’s really hard to pick a favorite, but at the end of a long day, I just want to hear Queen. We all sing along and everyone gets happy.


If you could have a beer with anyone (alive or dead), who would it be? Mark Twain. I think we could party.
