New Brew: Four Pillars

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum and Land-Grant Brewing Company are proud to announce their collaborative beer commemorating the Memorial and Museum’s first anniversary on the Scioto Peninsula in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

“We are proud to honor all Veterans, connect our communities, inspire our nation and educate every generation about the importance of service and sacrifice,” says Lt. General Michael Ferriter, US Army (Retired), President and CEO of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. “When we learned about the many ways Land-Grant supports our communities through storytelling, we were excited to explore opportunities to celebrate Veterans’ contributions to our nation together.”

The beer draws its name from the foundational pillars of the Museum and Memorial’s stated mission to: Honor, Connect, Inspire, and Educate.

“When on our tours of the Museum, our guides were always coming back to this idea of Four Pillars” says Land-Grant co-founder and President, Adam Benner. “The striking architecture of the building doesn’t actually have any columns in the traditional sense, so these conceptual pillars are really what hold up the Museum as a world class institution, one we’re beyond proud to have here in Columbus and to call our neighbors.”

Our collaborative can design draws inspiration from the Museum’s Remembrance Gallery exhibit featuring brilliant stained glass representing major military campaign medals dating back to the Civil War. The medals encircle an infinitely reflected, folded flag that once flew over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

“We took several trips to Museum and Memorial during the course of developing this beer, and there is so much to pull out of those round walls, it’s an infinite source of inspiration” says Land-Grant co-founder and Creative Director, Walt Keys. “As soon as we went upstairs to the Remembrance Gallery and roof amphitheater the view of the light pouring through the campaign medal ribbons really struck me as a profound and visual representation of the stories the Museum and Memorial exists to tell.”

Four Pillars is a Pale Ale clocking in at 5.3% ABV and featuring Ekuanot, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a grapefruit and citrus flavor profile.

Four Pillars Pale Ale will be available on draft and available six packs of cans ($9.99) at the Land-Grant taproom starting Friday, October 18th with distribution to Central Ohio craft beer retailers beginning the following Monday, October 21. A portion of the proceeds from Four Pillars Pale Ale will directly benefit the mission of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.

This beer is brewed to commemorate the first anniversary of Columbus’ National Veterans Memorial and Museum which was founded under the four guiding pillars to Honor, Connect, Inspire and Educate. Proceeds from this beer directly benefit its mission.

Our collaborative can design draws inspiration from the Museum’s Remembrance Gallery exhibit featuring brilliant stained glass representing major military campaign medals dating back to the Civil War. The medals encircle an infinitely reflected, folded flag that once flew over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. See more at nationalvmm.org.
