Bloomington, IN — Upland Brewing Company announced today Infinite Wisdom Tripel will be ready for release the first week of May. This strong Belgian-style ale uses classic Belgian yeasts, giving it a complex fruitiness and scents of banana and citrus. Although it’s very easy to drink, this ale is not to be recklessly consumed, weighing in at 9% ABV. Infinite Wisdom will be on tap at all Upland locations on Friday May 2nd, and will be available on draft and in bottles at select bars, restaurants, and bottle shops across Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Chicago in the following weeks.
This year, Infinite Wisdom will be packaged in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles, rather than the 22 oz. bombers of previous years. The imagery on the packaging will stay the same, so be on the lookout for label artwork by Upland’s good friend and world-renowned artist Norton Wisdom. Upland was first introduced to Wisdom through a former brewer several years ago, and the entire staff was captivated by his talent and individual style. The brewery has been working with him regularly ever since, commissioning him for several different beer labels and hosting a number of his live shows, during which Wisdom paints to live music and works in a performative style. These paintings are destroyed after the shows to remain a temporary interpretation of the music, but prints resurface in collages mounted on canvas. You don’t need to destroy your beer label after enjoying an Infinite Wisdom Tripel, however if you do, please recycle.

About the Brewery
Upland Brewing Company has been brewing Ales and Lagers in Bloomington, IN since 1998, making beer in a time-honored fashion that puts their care and dedication to the craft on full display. Above all, they make beer that’s true: to its heritage, to its ingredients, to itself. The name Upland refers to the landscape of Southern Indiana, where the brewery is located. The Norman and Crawford Uplands are the heavily wooded hills and hollows that were never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The Uplands are beautiful, and they bred independent thinkers and artisans, with a strong connection to their land and their community. Indiana University adds a progressive, tolerant, intellectual aspect to the town. The result is a heady mix of cultures and contradictions: a place where everyone can feel at home. A place that is equally respectful of tradition and open to change. Upland’s beer is representative of this place.ÔÇ¿ÔÇ¿Other Upland Beers: Helios Pale Ale (Gold and Professional Best of Show 2013 Indiana State Fair, Gold 2011 BTI World Beer Championships), Upland Wheat (Gold 2011, 2010 Bronze 2006 Indiana State Fair, Bronze 2009 BTI World Beer Championships, Gold 2002 Great American Beer Fest), Schwarz (Gold 2013, 2012 Indiana State Fair, 2012 Best of the Midwest Dark Lager United States Beer Tasting Championship, Silver 2010 Indiana State Fair), Teddy Bear Kisses (Gold 2011, 2010 BTI World Beer Championships).ÔÇ¿ÔÇ¿
