Enjoy the best in sour, WILD & Funky beers

Upland Sour Beer Festival 2018

If you like your beer sour, wild, or funky, 

prepare yourself for

Upland Brewing Co.'s 8th annual Sour Wild Funk Fest

at the Mavris Arts & Event Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, on March 23rd, 2019.


Sour Wild Funk Fest is our annual celebration of the best sour, wild, and funky beers in the country—even world. We pride ourselves on the breweries, amenities, and Hoosier hospitality we offer and that this festival is the only one of its kind in the Midwest. 

Each year the brewery lineup becomes more refined and curated based on individual breweries quality, innovation and dedication to the craft of sour beers. The goal is not to have the most breweries, but rather breweries that are at the forefront of the style. We will again host around 50 breweries.  Check out the current list of breweries. The list is updates as our roster fills out. 


Our goal is to create a seamless experience for all attendees. We review feedback year over year to continue to improve.  Collectible glassware, food  for purchase, and passports will continue to be offered. Better signage with brewery layout on each floor will be added.    VIP ticket holders will enjoy premium perks of early admission and an exclusive speakeasy lounge with rare, limited-edition beers, Champagne Velvet refreshment station, appetizers, brewery presentations, and private bathrooms. VIP ticket holders will again be able to pick up their wristbands early at the Upland Indianapolis Tasting Room for express entry.

Sip for a good cause

We will be announcing our charitable partner in early October.
