Prepare for a Sour, Wild, & Funky 

Adventure at

Upland Brewing Co.'s

9th Annual Sour Wild Funk Fest

hosted at Mavris Arts & Event Center

in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 4th, 2020.


Sour Wild Funk Fest is our annual celebration of the best sour, wild, and funky beers in the country—even the world.  As the only sour-focused festival in the midwest, we pride ourselves on the breweries, amenities, and Hoosier hospitality we offer. 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 and dedicated to sharing their product with consumers. We will again host around 50 breweries.  Check out the current list of breweries. The list will be updated 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, interactive presentations, and private bathrooms. VIP ticket holders will again be able to pick up their wristbands early at Upland College Ave. for express entry.
