You’re Invited to Solar Day
Upland Brewing Co.
350 W. 11th Street, Bloomington, IN 47404
Saturday, April 11th–2 pm

We cordially invite you to join us for the unveiling of the Midwest’s first solar water-heated brewery during Upland’s Solar Day. We will offer educational tours and presentations on solar energy as well as launching our new Helios Pale Ale – available for the first time! Dedication to sustainable practices is a core value of the brewery. By harnessing the power of the sun to brew, Upland expects to eliminate up to 75% on natural gas required for water heating. It is estimated the solar panels on Upland’s roof will provide over 167 million BTUs of energy each year.
The $70,000 installation was made possible and supported in part by a Department of Energy grant specifically available for alternative energy installations.
Please RSVP: 812.336.2337 x200 or email stacy@uplandbeer.com

We hope you join us to celebrate our sustainable
brewery with the release of our new Helios Pale Ale.
Live music on Upland’s patio!
