Apparently Upland is on the move with an expansion currently under construction. There's a terrific and popular courtyard--outdoor seating is a must. The indoor area can become cramped but it's worth sitting there if there's no availability outside. Beer lovers will find many microbrews to sample as well as the usual assortment of big-name beers. Sandwiches are bountiful and tasty,... More

This is Bloomington's stalwart brewery and the beer is really very good (better if you like hoppy beer!). And in the growing brewery market in town, it continues to stands out! Their patio was expanded a couple years ago, making it an even better place to spend a nice summer evening. Their food is also often excellent. I contend that... More

Upland is located couple blocks off the main street which is not unexpected as it is a brewpub with large fermentation tanks, etc. There is a large outdoor courtyard, but when it is not available I’m sure the dining area gets really backed up at times. The beers were good; ordering a flight will provide you a nice sample. The... More

I hit Upland every time I am in Bloomington. Generally good food & good beer, and long waits during the school year. We went on a Friday night in early August and waited over an hour (patio not open due to rain), then had to step in when hostess tried to give our table to a group lower on the... More

Upland is a brewpub with all the requisite features: semi-funky atmosphere, hipster clients with bushy beards, colorfully dyed hair, and/or visible tattoos, large fermentation tanks visible through a window, large outdoor courtyard, and a crowded and noisy dining area. But the microbrews are good. You'll find the ABV (alcohol) and IBU (bitterness) ratings clearly marked on the wall to help... More

A very nice inside bar and eating area, with a outdoor patio. They had live entertainment the evening we were there. The food and staff were very good and the buffalo chili, while had some heat was great. Most times when school is in. There is a waiting time to be seated. This day not bad, 10 min. Very nice...

My daughter is moving to Bloomington to attend The Jacobs School of Music as a grad student. This fun place is a bit off the beaten track, but is walking distance from her downtown residence. Downtown Bloomington is a wonderful place to live, with many great places to go for dinner or just a few brews. This is one of... More

If you enjoy sitting outdoors and drinking beer, then this is the place!!!! Outdoor seating is perfect, as was our waitress. I would not want to be stuck inside at this place. The flight of beer was a fun way to sample their brews. The food menu looked promising, but it was actually a disappointment. My husband had fish and... More

Beer and food is good but the place is so very noisy and crowded that I rarely go there. Also, there is no space to stand or sit and wait, especially if the outdoor space isn't an option.
