My Beloved

Named after Michael’s wife, Amy, this reference comes from the book of Song of Solomon in Scripture — ‘My beloved is mine, and I am his.’ An easy-drinking beer with a crisp finish and light mouthfeel, My Beloved has a crackery malt flavor and a light hop appearance to balance out the malt.

Tulip

The acronym, T.U.L.I.P, stands for ‘total depravity,’ ‘unconditional election,’ ‘limited atonement,’ ‘irresistible grace,’ and ‘preservation of the saints.’ It is based off of John Calvin’s doctrinal work in the early 1600s and communicates the five traditional doctrines of Reformed Theology. A strong ale that is surprisingly easy to drink: beware! This beer has a light malt and honey flavor, but the hops add in some pineapple, white grape, and lemongrass to the experience.

1420

An ale with slight fruity and earthy flavors, mingling with light caramel and vanilla malt flavors. “1420” comes from J.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy: “The Northfarthing barley was so fine that the beer of 1420 malt was long remembered and became a byword. Indeed a generation later one might hear an old Gaffer in an inn after a good pint of well-earned ale put down his mug with a sigh, ‘Ah! That was […]

The Glory Cloud

Because of its cloudy appearance, this beer reminds us of the glory cloud found in the book of Exodus by which God led the Israelites out of Egypt. This beer is cloudy due to an abundant amount of oats and wheat, but don’t let the haze fool you — it drinks like a glass of orange juice. Due to late hop additions in the boil and dry-hopping, flavors and aromas jump out with citrus, grapefruit, […]

A Grain Offering

An ale made with an abundant amount of wheat malt. It is crisp with a light fruity, lemony flavor. The wheat malt provides a sweet bready palate.

Anathema

A rich and strong stout. Undertones of roasted coffee dance with accents of chocolate with a light earthiness.

Chesterton

An easy drinking ale with notes of chocolate and light roastiness.

Covenant

An ale with a little more character than a Pale Ale. It has similar hop characteristics, but more pronounced malt character: caramel, raisin, light vanilla.

God’s Love,
Man’s Sweat

At Upper Room Brewery, we take the raw ingredients God has given – grain, water, hops, and yeast – and form them into something greater. Our brewing is a craft, a creation, an experience we want you to be part of.

Eat, Drink, and
Be Merry

We adhere to the belief that there is nothing better than for men and women to be joyful, to do good as long as they live, to eat and drink and take pleasure in all their toil – this is God’s gift to humanity. (Ecclesiastes 3:13)

Come,
Rest Awhile

For this reason, we want you to come, fellowship, read, listen, learn – stay awhile. Soak in the quiet space we’ve made to be purposefully peaceful – without screens, loud music, or flashy design – more old-fashioned brewpub than typical bar.
