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.”
