Bloomington-based Upland Brewing Co. has announced plans for a new brewery in Indianapolis. The company says the location in the Fountain Square neighborhood will also feature a a full-service restaurant, and a unique partnership with Gray Goat Bicycle Co.
Upland did not specify how much it is investing in the 13,000-square-foot brewery. It will include amenities such as an immersive beer hall experience, an outdoor beer garden, open kitchen, and a focus on brewery innovation and barrel aging.
"Expanding our brewing operations to Indy will be a perfect complement to our Bloomington-based Wood Shop Sour Ale & West Side Production Breweries," said Pete Batule, president and chief operating officer of Upland. "This new site will allow us to further experiment and challenge ourselves creatively. With a total of 26 lines and at least 10 barrel-aged & small batch beers on tap, we will provide our guests with front row access to our creative process."
The partnership with Gray Goat Bicycle Co. will consist of an on-site bicycle shop at the location. Gray Goat will offer a full-service repair shop, parts and accessories, and new and used bicycle sales.
Upland says it is shooting for a spring 2019 opening for the Fountain Square location.
The company has three locations in Bloomington, as well as Carmel and Columbus. Its tasting room near Broad Ripple in Indianapolis is currently undergoing renovations and is expected to reopen to the public next week.
