Eileen Martin heading to Bloomington and a job at Upland.

(Apologies for the tardy posting, but between INSIGHT BROADBUNGLE and BLOGGER, this hasn't been a good day to reside in cyberspace.)

I was told recently that everyone's favorite brewster, Eileen Martin (pictured in the cellar of a Czech brewery in 2004), had accepted a position in Bloomington at Upland, and here's official confirmation from that it's true.


Hi all,

Sorry it's such short notice, but things have been happening very fast!

I have accepted a cellarman's position at
Upland Brewing Co. in Bloomington, IN and start on Monday May 15. Dale will be a couple of weeks behind me and I'll be back on the weekends at least till the end of May. We have both decided that it's time to move on and leave this town behind.

We will be at Cumberland Brews tonight (Tuesday) from 6:00 - ? and at the BBC Tap Room (Main and Clay) tomorrow (Wednesday) night at the same time if anyone would like to come by and say goodbye before we leave. If time permits and we are able to find a place while we are in Bloomington on Thursday, we may go to Rich O's Friday night. Please feel free to forward this information on to anyone you think might want it.


I regret Eileen's departure from Louisville, but road trips to Bloomington just got a lot more fun.

Best wishes from all of us at NABC!

When Eileen joined the Brewster ranks in 1992, she joined a small yet elite group. Eileen, Teri Fahrendorf (Steelhead Brewing) and Sara Hale (Schlafly) were pioneers reviving the brewster trade. While there are many more Brewsters today, Eileen was one of the first in modern times.

Congratulations to Eileen for sticking with it. Bloomington is a fun town.
