Preview: Upland’s 20th Anniversary Celebration


This Saturday, July 27th, The White Rabbit Cabaret in Fountain Square will be hosting the 20th Anniversary Celebration for Upland Brewing Company. The Anniversary party will feature plenty of Upland brews on tap, live music, and giveaways.

Upland beers on tap include Dragonfly IPA, Wheat Ale, Champagne Velvet, Campside Pale Ale and Little Wheat Lies. Upland beers Preservation Pilsner, Free Time Lager and Juiced In Time will be available in cans as well.

The celebration will also include Upland-based trivia questions, along with free giveaways throughout the night. So be sure to brush up on your craft beer knowledge beforehand. I’m sure the prizes will consist of Upland shirts, hats, bottle openers, or other merchandise of the like.

Free Concert

The best part about Upland’s Anniversary Celebration at The White Rabbit is by far the free concert. I mean, yes, beer is always nice. But how often do you actually get to go to a free concert? Once a month on First Fridays? Okay, sure, so maybe they’re not so rare. Still, it’s at the very least a nice bonus.

Clint Breeze and The Groove will be helping to celebrate Upland’s 20th Anniversary, and providing the much needed music. If you aren’t aware of them, Clint Breeze is the brainchild of hip hop producer and Indianapolis native, Carrington Clinton. Their jazz and soul-inspired sound includes heavy drum compositions that are balanced out with catchy rhythms and melodies.

The members of Clint Breeze and The Groove are Jay Higginson (trumpet), Nick Tucker (bass), Christopher Pitts (keys), Carrington Clinton (drums), Jared Thompson (saxophone), Joel Tucker (guitar) and Theon Lee (vocalist and emcee).

Upland’s 20th anniversary Celebration kicks off at 8:00 pm at The White Rabbit this Saturday, July 27th. The cover is waived for the night, but the beer ain’t free. So bring a couple bucks, your wallet, and don’t forget the I.D.
