Festival

Enjoy the best in sour, WILD & Funky beers

Upland Sour Beer Festival 2018

Sour beer lovers rejoice! Upland Brewing Co. is hosting the 7th annual Sour Wild Funk Fest at Mavris Arts & Event Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, on April 7, 2018.

Sour Wild Funk Fest is our annual celebration of the best sour, wild, and funky beers in the country—even world. It's the only one of its kind in the Midwest. Our 2018 festival will host even more breweries than years past, with beer samples on all four levels. VIP and Early Bird tickets are sold out—but there are many General Admission tickets still available. Get yours today before they run out! 

More breweries than ever

This year’s lineup will feature more than 150 beers from around 50 breweries, including Cascade, Mikkeller, Blackberry Farm, Firestone Walker, The Rare Barrel, and more. Check out the current list of breweries. More will be announced at a later date—so check back soon.  

Enjoy even better perks

What else can you expect this year? Collectible glassware, a smoother entry process, and food available for purchase. VIP ticket holders can 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 can also pick up their wristbands early at the Upland Indianapolis Tasting Room for express entry.

Sip for a good cause

A portion of this year's proceeds will go to the Indiana Wildlife Federation to support their conservation efforts. Their mission is to promote the conservation, sound management, and sustainable use of Indiana's wildlife and wildlife habitat through education, advocacy and action.
