September 24, 2013- One week from today, Upland Brewing Company will open an online lottery for the release of three of its renowned sour ales: Kiwi, Strawberry, and Blackberry fruited Lambic-style ales. Due to labor intensiveness, a long brewing process, and the seasonal availability of local fruit, these ales are released infrequently and in limited quantities. Consequently, lottery requests will be restricted to one bottle per person.
The lottery, at www.UplandSours.eventbrite.com, will open at noon EDT on Tuesday October 1st and close at noon October 8th. Preferred pick-up location must be specified at the time of entry; both the Brew Pub in Bloomington and the Indianapolis Tasting Room are options.
Lottery winners will be notified via email on October 9th and will have the opportunity to purchase the sour ale they selected at their preferred location from October 22nd through November 5th. After the two-week reservation pick-up period, any remaining sour ales will be sold first come first served.
