Kiwi Lambic: Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year, which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole kiwis, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned, which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Kiwi Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

Permission Slip: A brand new collaboration beer with our friends at Jolly Pumpkin. Permission Slip is a unique blend of two base beers. The first beer, brewed at Jolly Pumpkin, features raw wheat and flaked oats for a soft mouthfeel, intrinsic flavors of JP’s house yeast, and aromatic Mosaic and Amarillo hop additions, all aged on Indiana persimmons. The second beer is Upland Sour Reserve, refermented for 3 months on fresh Dragonfruit. Blended together these beers create a melange of peach, apricot, and tropical fruit flavors with Belgian yeast character and polite lactic and acetic acid. Please enjoy with friends over grilled pineapple and pulled pork.

Dantalion: Dantalion is our demonically named sour ale based on the Oud Bruin beer style. Medium brown in color, Dantalion has hints of chocolate, Munich malts, and rye. We also incorporate a spice blend containing ginger, coriander, star anise, grains of paradise, and black pepper to create a gentle halo of spice character. The beer is fermented on the same selection of yeasts and microbes as our base lambic, and aged for up to 8 months or more in white oak barrels.
