Infinite Wisdom Weekend

Bloomington, Ind. - To celebrate the release of our specialty Belgain-style ale, Infinite Wisdom Tripel, Upland is bringing world renowned artist Norton Wisdom and Chicago's premier progressive bluegrass band, Cornmeal, to Bloomington

Norton Wisdom is a good friend of the brewery, and his work is featured on the label of our Infinite Wisdom Tripel (as well as our Dantalion Dark Wild Ale and Double Dragonfly Imperial IPA). Wisdom does all his painting to music, and once a piece is completed, the canvas is wiped clean, leaving only a high res digital photo as testimony to his masterpieces!

On Friday March 26th, beginning at 7pm, Upland will host an exhibition of Wisdom's work in our Bloomington banquet hall. Wisdom himself will be there to discuss his works and meet his fans, and prints of his work will be available for purchase.

The excitement of Wisdom's work is not only in the final product, but in the process, which you'll be able to see first-hand the following night, Saturday, March 27. Wisdom will be painting original art to the sounds of Zion Crossroads and Cornmeal at Jake's Nightclub in Bloomington, beginning at 7pm.

This is also the official kickoff for our Infinite Wisdom Tripel (which you can probably tell was named in honor of the artist). Infinite Wisdom Tripel is a strong Belgian-style ale that has a long fermentation period using classic Belgian yeasts. The nose contains banana and citrus notes while a complex fruitiness and light warming sensation are experienced upon tasting. Like many Belgian Tripels, Infinite Wisdom is strong but delectably drinkable.

Tickets to the show are $10 in advance, and $12 day of. Tickets are available online at or at Upland's Bloomington Tap Room, Indy Tasting Room, or Jake's Nightclub.
