As part of a larger project, we shot a time-lapse of our happenin’ little corner of East Franklinton. It just so happened a four-alarm fire caught flame and dominated the Columbus Skyline that day. No one was hurt in the blaze, which took place at a pallet factory south of the city.
We here at Land-Grant are extremely excited to share that we’ve struck a deal with Columbus Crew SC to become an official partner of the club. Not only will we continue to show the matches in the taproom and pour our beer at Mapfre Stadium; but we will be working with the club to brew a signature beer for Crew SC Supporters.
“At Land-Grant, we take great pride in the community we’re working to grow, our commitment to design and—above all—the quality of our product,” says Land-Grant President, Adam Benner. “Crew SC obviously shares those values. It’s reflected in their branding efforts, play on the field, and devotion to Columbus. They are exactly what we were looking for in our search for a partner.”
Many details are yet to be revealed, including the beer style, name and branding, but we can say that it will be offered at both Mapfre Stadium, which has been serving Land-Grant’s beers during the 2015 season, as well as throughout the Columbus Market. We’ll be filling in those details in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for the most up-to-date developments. #bemassive
Did you know that we make all of those sharp looking tap handles you see around town ourselves? We hand paint them in the brewery, laser them next door at the Columbus Idea Foundry, and hand deliver them to each of our accounts, like the fine folks across the street at Strongwater Food and Spirits. Here’s a little video (with a slick soundtrack by Comrade Question) we made to show you the process.
