Photos: Matthew Carbone’s “Before” Photos

LandGrant_Before-28

A few weeks back we shared photographs of our building taken by our friend, and architectural photographer, Matthew Carbone. He recently sent along another set of photos, this selection documenting the early days of our project here in Franklinton. These photos were taken shortly after the demo stage had begun. The photos sit in such stark contrast of the building’s current incarnation, it’s amazing to think it’s come so far since March.

Last night, Columbus cocktail wizards, Four Thieves Thirst Parlour, hosted their second pop-up speakeasy event at Land-Grant. The night featured traditional holiday cocktails and h’oeuvres d’oeuvres, a guided bourbon food pairing, and a special cocktail made with our 1862 Ale, the Morrill Mimosa. Here are a sampling of photos from a warm and fun evening at the taproom.

Vandalized!

In the early morning hours of Sunday, December 7 2014, our barn-wood facade was vandalized by some “artists.” It’s a tough thing to see something you worked your ass off on be disrespected in such a blatant and targeted fashion. None-the-less, for every lazy vandal in town there’s countless more folks working to benefit both our awesome neighborhood of Franklinton and Columbus as a whole, and we wanted to take this careless act and use it to shine a light on some of the folks working towards a positive end. Thus we’re taking pre-orders on this t-shirt here, and we’ll donate 100% of the proceeds to our incredible neighbors, the Gladden Community House and The Harmony Project.

We’ll be taking pre-orders for these up until Christmas and will ship them out early in the New Year. Help us take something ugly and turn it into something great.
