This fruity, funky Belgian pale combines the distinct flavors of Trappist yeast and Munich malt. Its medium body and zesty phenols are satisfying in the cool, showery days of early spring, and its slight cloudiness is what gives it its name. The broken waves of light that shine through a glass of this beer remind us that long days on the lake are drawing near! Lightwave is a very small batch beer and consequently will only be available at Upland locations in Bloomington, Indianapolis, and Carmel, IN.

Brewery: Upland Brewing Company, Bloomington, Indiana
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.
