Great clearly explained vegan options - Edit

If you tell your server you are vegan, s/he will give you a special menu with Vegan options (and Gluten free options on the reverse side). It lists items that are vegan already, as well as the substitutions/omissions they will make if you order something vegan.
One criticism, is that the "tofu" in the tofu tacos was more like seitan (but not quite). If you like a tasty marinaded, crispy on the outside, warm and soft in the inside tofu--don't get the tofu tacos. If you're up for something different, go for it. The flavors are good, but it just wasn't what I was expecting.

Pros: printed menu of vegan items (just ask!)

Cons: weird tofu on tacos

Great Vegan Options at Carmel Location - Edit

Located 116th and College in Carmel, IN
All of their vegan and vegetarian options are delicious! I find myself craving their food all the time.

Blue corn tortilla chips w/ salsa and guac all made in house

Brewery fries

Asian Mixed Green Salad

Tofu Salad

Black bean patty on your choice of style of burger

Seitan philly

Seitan tenderloin

Just let your server know you're vegan, and they can also point out the current seasonal menu items for you!

Pros: Excellent beer selection, Great patio, Variety of veg friendly options

Cons: Small restaurant

Vegan options vastly improved - Edit

There were several items on the menu that were vegan, or could easily be made vegan. I had the spicy tofu tacos, and just substituted guacamole instead of the chipotle cream. My mom had the seitan sandwich, and the server upon hearing we were vegan, knew enough to tell us she would switch to vegan bread. Other options were sriracha hummus, and I saw a wrap that would be vegan without the feta. There was a black bean burger, but I didn't ask if it contained egg.

vegan unfriendly - Edit

despite having a menu filled with vegetarian items, including seitan, tofu, and a veggie burger the only vegan item they could provide was french fries and a limp salad.

Pros: lacto-ovo items

Cons: no vegan items

Not vegan friendly - Edit

Upland Brewery might be vegetarian-friendly but it's definitely not vegan-friendly. Tofu and seitan are breaded with egg and I think none of the courses on the menu are vegan. They did make me a vegan dish when I asked, but the tofu tasted weird. Good beer though!

Long time favorite - Edit

We eat here once or twice a week; lifetime "Mug Club" members. Besides awesome beers, they really offer a lot for us vegetarians. Nachos, Hummus plate, spinach/artichoke dip, fried green tomatoes (dedicated vegetarian fryer, by the way; does a bang up job on the brewery fries), black bean burgers with various fixin's, seitan philly cheese, tenderloin, schnitzel, country fried seitan, pasta dishes, veggie kabobs, usually one of the dinner specials is veggie....Great place! I would give 5 Happy Cows but can't because it's not veg-only.

Pros: plenty of options, delicious food, BEER!

Cons: sometimes slow, don't be in a hurry, don't go on game night
