Giddy up, Nashville!
Strap on your boots and head to the nearest watering hole because Upland Sours are now in Nashville, Tennessee! We partnered with Bounty Beverage, Nashville’s only 100% American craft beer distributor, to bring our wood-aged beers beginning the week of July 10.
“Nashville is one of the most fun cities to visit on the weekends for us in the Midwest, but that’s not the only reason we’re launching our sours there. Not only is it paradise for music lovers, but the food and beer scene is one-of-a-kind. Thanks to our partnership with BountyBev, we know our sour ales will be welcomed and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike,” said Dusty Howe, Upland’s Sours Brand Manager.
Coming to Nashville first are Hopsynth, Iridescent, and Revive—all refreshing beers to escape the southern heat. Hopsynth is our blonde base beer, Basis, dry-hopped with the freshest experimental hops available, which happened to be Citra and El Dorado for this latest batch. Iridescent is the result of ingredient exploration of fruits and spices by the brewers. Aged on dried apricots and ginger for 3-4 months in wine barrels from a local winery, Iridescent is tart and tropical with a fruity finish. Revive was one of the first new releases after we opened the Wood Shop Sour Ale Brewery last May. Fruit and spice experiments, along with input from staff and regulars, came together in a melding of pineapple and chamomile. Aged for six months, Revive is bursting with pineapple and herbal aromas, followed by tart, tropical flavors.
All three beers will be available in 500ml bottles, and Hopsynth and Iridescent can also be found on draught. Fans can try these beers at launch events beginning July 10 at Craft Brewed from 6-8pm with tastings and bottle sales. We’ll be at the Flying Saucer on Tuesday, July 11 from 5-8pm and capping the launch on Wednesday with two stops. Find our crew on July 12 at Frugal McDougal’s from 3-6pm and The Hop Stop from 6-9pm.
