IBJ Podcast: Upland expands Indiana footprint as it sends beer overseas

Upland Brewing Co. opened its main brewery and first brewpub in Bloomington in 1998 and this year will produce 16,000 barrels of beer a year, making it the state’s third-largest brewer.

It now operates two brewpubs in Indianapolis and one each in Carmel, Columbus and Bloomington, as well as tasting facilities at its two Bloomington breweries.

Host Mason King talks with Pete Batule, Upland’s chief operating officer, about the company’s growth, including its busy new brewpub in Fountain Square, and the line of sour beers that its selling across the country and overseas.
