Land-Grant x HOMAGE x Club Trillion

We’re grabbing a seat on the bench with our good friends Mark Titus and HOMAGE to Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Club Trillion Blog!

We’ve dusted off our Fundamentals training videos, and are excited to announce we’re teaming up with Walk-on Legend Mark Titus and HOMAGE to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Titus’ wildly popular Club Trillion blog. Planned to mark the occasion is a collaborative beer, Taproom Launch Party, limited edition t-shirt, and a blowout bash at the 2019 Final Four in Minneapolis.

“Is Club Trillion the first college basketball fraternity in history to get its own fashion line and its own beer? I have no idea,” says Titus. “Figuring something like that out would require effort, and effort goes against everything Club Trillion stands for. What I do know, though, is that I couldn’t be more excited to partner with HOMAGE and Land-Grant for the 10th Anniversary celebration of Club Trillion, especially since both have already shown me more respect in the short time we’ve been working together than all of my teammates combined did during my four years at Ohio State.”

“Mark’s talent for story telling, and, um, lack of talent on the court really endeared himself to hoop fanatics as well as casual followers,” Says Land-Grant President, Adam Benner. “And in his post-collegiate career, he has developed into an incredible ambassador for Columbus. For that reason, it really made sense to take a look back and celebrate the Club Trillion Legacy with a special beer release.”

Titus tends to enjoy beers on the maltier end of the spectrum, so for this brew it only made sense to develop a beer that the man himself would enjoy drinking. The brew team at Land-Grant whipped up an Amber Ale that should satisfy newcomers to craft beer as well as those seeking some depth to their beer. The whole thing is wrapped up in the texture and graphics from HOMAGE’s iconic “Club Tril” t-shirt that helped propel the blog to viral status.

To celebrate the beer and t-shirt launch, Land-Grant will be hosting a launch and watch party with Titus and HOMAGE centered around the Ohio State vs. Michigan basketball game on January 29th at 9pm. The collaborative trio will follow that up with a blowout party in Minneapolis at the Final Four on Sunday, April 7th. Details on both events will be filled in as the dates approach, but go ahead and save the date now.
HOMAGE founder Ryan Vesler sums the project up nicely saying, “HOMAGE is excited to be a part of the Club Trillion 10th Anniversary. Never before have we paid homage to so little!”

Club Trillion Amber Ale will retail for $9.99 per six-pack, and will be available in package and on draft beginning at the Launch Event and Watch Party at the Land-Grant taproom on January 29, 2019.

Concentrate, Now Delivering Hoppy Goodness Year-Round

In opart 2 of our Double-Dose of year-round IPA Press Releases today, we’re jazzed tio to introduce our first year-round series of Hazy IPAs: Concentrate. The name is inspired by the beer’s utilization of Cryo-Hops—essentially concentrated hop oils—to achieve super juicy and intense hop flavor and aroma without overwhelming bitterness.

“Concentrate IPA is aptly named, packing a concentrated juicy hop punch, compliments of the use of the Cryo-Hops,” says Director of Operations, Mark Richards. “I am a longtime hophead and this became one of my favorite new beers of 2018. I am pumped to see how the brewers will riff on the style from quarter to quarter in 2019!”

“Concentrate is the sum of our knowledge about creating big hop flavor in an easily drinkable package,” says Lead Brewer, Dan Shaffer. “Cryo-Hops allow us to maximize juicy hop flavor without the harsh burn of other highly hopped beers.”

Each quarterly edition of Concentrate will feature a new can label design, featuring Warhol-inspired cans in varying colors, highlighting the flavor and seasonality of the beers.

“The name Concentrate took me back to coming home on a summer day and having Mom peel open a can of Orange Juice concentrate for instant refreshment,” says Creative Director, Walt Keys. “That nostalgia played nicely with the Warhol-inspired can motif and, much like Quadrahopic, its seasonality gives me reign to play with the colors and the feel of each release.”

Concentrate IPA will retail for $11.99 per six-pack, and will be available in package and on draft beginning the first week in February 2019.
