Stevesy and Deep Search Set Sail in Cans Next Week!

sea-grant_promo

We’re excited to announce the release of two special edition beers within their Sea-Grant Beer Series; Stevesy (5.5% ABV), a refreshing Helles Lager and Deep Search (7.7% ABV), a robust Baltic Porter. Deep Search arrives for its third year with much anticipation after a successful run in cans and on draft in 2015 and 2016. Stevesy debuted last year as a very limited release that was extremely well received in the Land-Grant Taproom and will be rolling out this year as a more widespread release in cans and on draft.

As the first two beers in what should be a packed 2017 beer lineup, both Stevesy and Deep Search were brewed and developed with adventure in mind. The brew team explored a different strain of yeast for both beers, and in order to achieve a beer as big as Deep Search, required them to brew the much lighter, Stevesy, a Helles Lager, to prepare the yeast for the task of fully fermenting Deep Search. Both beers lagered for 6 weeks, which makes for a heightened finish.

This launch is also in conjunction with the debut of the Land-Grant Collectors Club card series, an opportunity for the first patrons who visit the taproom and purchase a 6-pack to commemorate the beer and branding with a special edition collector’s card. This new program will run throughout 2017 for certain seasonal, limited, and special release beers, and cards can then be redeemed for specials and gifts throughout the year.

Stevesy will be available on draft and in six packs “to go” in the Land-Grant Taproom beginning Monday, January 2nd and Deep Search will debut on Thursday, January 5th. Six packs of both will roll out to grocery and specialty retailers beginning January 9th and drafts outside of the Land-Grant taproom will be available after the official planned launch event, January 12th at PiNS Mechanical

Land-Grant 2017 Release Schedule

cans

Thanks for making 2016 an amazing year for our little brewery! We’ve been hard at work churning out beer for all of your holiday endeavors, but we’ve also been diligently conspiring and plotting our course for 2017. And that means devising a road map for 2017 releases, which you can see below. Like any map, sometimes detours and reroutes are necessary, and who knows there may be a few surprise stops along the way, but this is generally speaking where we’re going in 2017, so pack accordingly. Speaking outside of my roadtrip metaphor, these are the beers we’re hoping to package this year (with most of these available in cans) but we’ll definitely mix in some fun limited releases, collaborations, and barrel aged fun that is not reflected in this chart. We’ve got some fun things planned for the next year, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Introducing the Land-Grant Collector’s Club!
In our brief two year existence, we’ve been proud to release over 40 different beers. Some of those were large scale year round releases, some were taproom only small batches, but they each came with their own collectible trading card. What started as a fun way to identify our beers in a tasting flight has taken on a life of its own, and we’ve developed a legion of dedicated card collectors here in Columbus.

We wanted to take this collection obsession to the next level, so we’re excited to announce the launch of the Land-Grant Collector’s Club. For each can release in 2017, we will have 50 limited edition collector cards available for the first 50 people to come in and pick up a six pack or pint of a newly launched (or relaunched) beer. Of course, each release will also be accompanied by its standard card as well which will be available throughout the beer’s run. To up the stakes a bit, if you collect multiple Collector’s Club cards throughout the year, we’ll reward you with some special Land-Grant swag:

4 Cards / Special Edition Koozy
8 Cards / Collector’s Club’s Club pint glass
12 cards / Super limited edition Land-Grant T-Shirt!

Land-Grant Lands at John Glenn Columbus International Airport.

img_6040

Starting today, fliers traveling through Concourse B at the John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) will be able to enjoy a beer from the Land-Grant! A taproom at the airport allows us another opportunity to share our craft both with Columbus locals and visitors alike in the city we live in and love.

“We’re proud to be a part of the Columbus community and we’re excited to broaden our reach in sharing and introducing our beer,” says Founder & CEO Adam Benner.

Officially opening on Monday, December 5th, the taproom has a similar design and appearance to that of Land-Grant’s rustic modern Franklinton taproom within a smaller footprint. With reclaimed wood-lined walls and sprawling bar, metal paned windows, and sleek furniture designed and built by Columbus’ MINOH Design, customers will find this space an inviting and enjoyable retreat during air travel.

Featured on tap will be Land-Grant’s four Core beers, 1862 Ale, Greenskeeper, Stiff-Arm, and Son of a Mudder, along with 2 Land-Grant rotating seasonals, and guest bottles. Wine and cocktails will also be served. The menu, designed in collaboration with Land-Grant and seasoned restaurant operator HMS Host, will be comprised of tasty dishes perfect for pairing, that include, flatbreads, sandwiches, and salads. Visitors can also purchase an array of Land-Grant branded merchandise and 6-packs to go for further enjoyment at a traveler’s destination.

The Land-Grant Brewing Taproom at The John Glenn Columbus International Airport will be serving Concourse B travelers 7 days a week.

New Brew: Skull Session

lg_skullsession_11x17_poster_v1

The Land-Grant Brewing Company is excited to announce the launch of, Skull Session, a light drinking, malt forward Scarlet Lager that is part of their fall 2016 seasonal release group. Skull Session, with a 5.5% alcohol by volume, is a Scarlet Lager by name and color and carries with it a malt-driven balanced taste.

A Skull Session is known as one last strategy opportunity before the big game, and for the Columbus, Ohio based Land-Grant Brewing, it’s a tip of the hat to tradition, preparation, and perfect formation. The brewery discussed at length the look, taste, and ingredients that would come together in crafting such a tribute and are very excited to debut the final product at a time of year when families and fans alike can toast their traditions and teams. “As the season continues to change and most beers are getting darker, we wanted to brew a refreshing lager to take in the last few games of 2016 here in Columbus and beyond,” said Adam Benner, Land-Grant Brewing’s founder.

Skull Session will be available for purchase on tap and in six-packs at the Land-Grant taproom, as well as craft beer retailers throughout the Columbus area, beginning Friday, November 18th and in fine craft beer retailers throughout Columbus beginning Monday, November 21st. Six packs will retail for $9.99.

This light drinking, malt forward Scarlet Lager owes a tip of its cap to a timeless autumn tradition. A chance to clear your mind before Saturday’s main event. This beer draws its ruddy hue from vienna and amber caramel malts, and its mostly traditional hop profile of Perle and Tettnang gets a dash of American flare via the addition of Cascade. This is a beer that’s in formation, and ready to march.

We’re excited to announce the release of a new India Pale Lager, Home, to commemorate the 5th consecutive World Cup Qualifying cycle being held in Columbus, Ohio. Brewed specifically for the November 11th USA-Mexico match, Home will be served at Mapfre Stadium. This limited release will also be available on tap and in six packs from the Land-Grant taproom, as well as within select fine craft beer retailers throughout Columbus.

Our president and co-founder had this to say on the commemorative brew… “Since before the brewery was even open, U.S. Soccer has been a huge part of Land-Grant.We watched the 2014 World Cup in the brewery during construction, and we’ve had incredible experiences at US-Mexico matches in the past. Once we heard the announcement that Columbus would, once again, host the game, we knew we had to brew up something special to commemorate it.”
