New Brew: Kin

This is Nik’s beer—a Kölsch-style Golden Ale, brewed with Agave Nectar, Tropical Hops and Nik in mind. Beer builds community, and we were honored to have Nik at the center of ours. He was a soft-spoken soul who could summon a roar, a roots rock king with tropical panache, and a man who taught us all how lucky we are to have one another. Proceeds from this beer benefit the Dick & Jane Project.

People Behind the Pint: Jacob Walker

You can thank this LG OG for that can in your hand. When Jacob isn’t busy overseeing the canning line, he is designing and customizing all of our tap handles… or, mastering (and sharing his love of) the sport of disc golf! Our annual winner of Employee With The Shortest Commute, Jacob can be found in his front yard (AKA, the LG patio) most Mondays with taco in hand. Cheers!

Name: Jacob Walker
Position: Canmaster General

How long have you been at Land-Grant?
Since November 1, 2014. Almost an OG.

What is it you do here?
I’m the lead operator on the canning line and I also produce all tap handles for accounts and taproom.

You’ve spearheaded LG’s passion for disc golf–how long have you been playing? And is it true we may be restocking our custom discs?
I started throwing discs when I was 16 (now 34), but had some right shoulder injuries here and there. I started playing competitively in early 2017 with the intention of going PRO. Yes, it is true that Land-Grant will be restocking our custom stamped discs…. this time it’s CLASSIC SOFT JUDGES!!!!! More to come in the future regarding different molds and such.

You’ve been a Franklintonian for years now–since before Land-Grant opened–what first drew you to the neighborhood and what do you think of its recent evolution?
Well, initially we moved to Franklinton for affordability–not really knowing the neighborhood–and, we fell in love immediately! The people are awesome and it’s decently close to all the cool spots in Columbus. In the future I see big things for Franklinton. With two huge living complexes about to open to the public, Franklinton has every reason to be a hotspot for fun… and super good LG beer!

What is your favorite day of the week at the brewery?
My favorite day of the week at LG is easily Monday! Colin and Amber usually tend the bar with Sunnyside Tacos outside cooking up tasty tacos. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the other trucks and Ray Ray’s, but there is a special place in my heart for TACOS!!!!!

New Brew: Batch 500

We brewed our first beer on September 16th 2014. Between then and June 28 2018 we cranked out 498 more tasty batches, and for our 500th brew, we wanted to make something special. Batch 500 is a strong fruited Sour Ale brewed with sweet cherry and plum to commemorate this milestone at our Franklinton, Columbus, Ohio brewery. Here’s to 500 more!
