Upland Tasting Room, 4842 N College Ave, Indianapolis, IN ‎ (317) 602-3931

Looking in on New Augusta Bluegrass Band from College Ave.

The Upland Tasting Room, an extension of the brewery in Bloomington, IN, serves excellent beer, welcomes dogs, and best of all (besides the beer!) they support local acoustic/folk music.  There is a traditional Irish session every Sunday, 6-9:30 p.m., and most Fridays and Saturdays feature songwriters and bluegrass.  New Augusta Bluegrass Band  is a regular on the calendar and they were tearing it up this past Friday when I visited.  Upland doesn’t serve food aside from pretzels, but you are welcome to take in from the places around.  This is an easy place to lose track of time, chit-chat, try several types of beer.  There’s no cover so be generous when tipping musicians and bar staff if we want to see this kind of music supported for a long time to come.  Once again, Folkfestfinder highly rates the Upland Tasting Room for its choice to support music and conversation over television. If you want to get a feel for what the place is like, here is a short video (note: FolkFestFinder is working on her video skills!):
