Upland Teams with West Fork Whiskey in Drink Partnership

West Fork Whiskey Co. and Upland Brewing Company have announced a new drink partnership: the Hoosier Hi-Five.

The Hoosier Hi-Five is a combination of two Indiana heritage brands each with over 100 years of unique history: Old Hamer Straight Bourbon Whiskey resurrected by West Fork Whiskey and Champagne Velvet Pilsner, a legacy honored by Upland Brewing. The companies envision the Hoosier Hi-Five as the new go-to whiskey and beer combo for backyard barbecues, legendary nights with friends and shot and beer pairings at bars and restaurants throughout Indiana.

The combination was born out of the frustration that Hoosiers do not have their own spirit and beer pairing like other cities and states – Chicago Handshake (Illinois), CityWide Special (Philadelphia), or the Two-Step (Texas). Not only does this new drink combination team up two historic Indiana brands, but they pair very well together due to their crisp, clean flavor profiles.

“I love this partnership because it sets off a chain reaction of bringing people together under the banner of our shared history. Each Hoosier Hi-Five is a celebration of Indiana’s storied culture of artisan manufacturing, both past and present,” said David Bower, President of Upland Brewing.

The Hoosier Hi-Five can be enjoyed at a growing number of bars & restaurants throughout the entire state or purchased at liquor & grocery stores to enjoy at home with friends.
