Tow Yard Brewing
Currently On Tap 
House Beers
Goldie Hops- American Golden Ale brewed with Marris Otter, wheat, and some crystal malt. Lightly bittered with Magnum and Czech Saaz. With this combination, the beer is crisp, refreshing, and approachable to all kinds of beer drinkers. 5.2% ABV 26 IBU
Hook Up-
A hybrid between a Radler and a Shandy. We call it a Shandler. It's our golden ale blended with a locally made, citrus forward soda. A delicious and refreshing beverage for a hot summer day. 4% ABV 7 IBU
Emerald Circle-
Made by Northwest Hopheads, for Midwest Hopheads. This aggressive IPA is brewed with Maris Otter base malt along with Light Crystal, Aromatic and Vienna malts to add complexity to the malt bill. From here we get a bit heavy handed with our hop additions, which are early and often. The laundry list of hops includes: Cascade, Chinook, Columbus and Centennial. Which are added throughout the boil and then later dry hopped. 6.5% ABV 83 IBU
Horse Power- 
This house beer is a Double Pale Ale which lives up to its name. Maris Otter starts out our grist, followed by some Munich, Aromatic, and Light Crystal malts. For this beer we bittered with Magnum and Centennial, followed by late kettle additions of Cascade, Crystal and Styrian Golding hops which adds a depth of flavor and complexity to this beer. 7.3% ABV 63 IBU
Working Title Wheat- The official beer of Hoosier Park Casino in Anderson (Known as the 'Dan Patvh Ale' there). Citrus dominates the front end of the nose, followed by tropical fruit in the finish. Working Title is bittered with Chinook, followed by late kettle additions of Motueka and Rakau hops from New Zealand. The mouthfeel of this beer is achieved through generous amounts of white wheat, along with European specialty malts. 5.3% ABV 50 IBU
All house beers are available for $5 growler fills on Mondays all summer long.
$4 Pints of Tow Yard beers on Tuesdays

Upland Brewery

Oktoberfest will be available in all markets starting August 1 and on tap at Upland retail locations September 19. No season is as synonymous with beer as autumn, when the most storied beer festival of them all, Oktoberfest, takes place in Munich, Germany. Since 1810, this celebration of good food, good company, and, most importantly, good beer, has most prominently featured Marzen-style lager-so much so that many refer to the beer simply as Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest was awarded Silver at the World Beer Cup in 2010.

We are also excited to announce it's newest Side Trail series beer: Loner IPA . This brew is a special release IPA featuring a single fresh hop - Chinook. The key to this beer is simplicity; Loner IPA lets the drinker appreciate each ingredient for what it is. We are excited about single hop beers so be on the lookout for more Loners as a part of our Side Trail series. Loner IPA featuring Chinook will be available for wholesale on August 1 and on tap at Upland retail locations August 8.
