As promised, I am making an effort to travel for in-person interviews with your favorite craft beer makers. For my first interview outside of the Louisville, KY area, I visited Upland Brewing Company in Bloomington, Indiana.
I met up with Upland’s President, Doug Dayhoff. Doug invited me into the newly opened Wood Shop. Here, we discussed the brewery’s history, its changes, and its Sour Ale Program. Doug tells me about Champagne Velvet‘s fall and revival, including changes in ownership from the Terre Haute Brewing Company all the way to Pabst, with many breweries in between. We also delve into the great Indiana Beer Community — in fact, Doug goes out of his way to recognize some other great Indiana craft breweries.
A note to listeners:
If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you are a brewery and think you have a story to share, I’d be more than willing to learn more about it! Please reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook.
As always, I would be grateful if you subscribed to Building Breweries on iTunes and left me a rating/review. It would go a long way in helping me grow and attract other breweries.
Thank you for listening!
