Bloomington, IN — Upland Brewing Co. announced today that Coast Buster Imperial IPA will be available at our retail locations August 1. Draught is available now throughout our current distribution network and 4 pack bottles will be following in August. Coast Buster was first brewed as a Side Trail Series brew and with an overwhelming response, we have decided to adopt Coast Buster Imperial IPA into our year round Upland Brew Lineup! Inspired by the gloriously effervescent qualities of hop varieties common to West Coast style Imperial IPAs, Coast Buster is our vehicle for displaying the best of what these hops have to offer: their tropical, fruity, and floral aromas and flavors.
Beer Description : With a light malt character and a dry finish, this is a beer designed to let the most succulent aspects of Simcoe, Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade, Centennial shine through while keeping the bitterness in balance.

About the Brewery
Located in Bloomington, Indiana, Upland’s rich history dates all the way back to 1998. Taking traditional recipes and making them a bit more awesome, Upland Brewing Co. came up with their own recipes rooted with inspiration from good beer and good friends, providing a fresh local option to their communities. The name Upland comes from the term geologists gave to this area of Southern Indiana land which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The adversity of the land bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. Upland’s approach to brewing beer honors the spirit of these people and this place.
