New Brew: Batch 300

For the 300th batch of Land-Grant beer brewed at our Franklinton production facility, the brew team wanted to whip up something special, a beer that exists outside of our M.O. To truly celebrate the occasion, we developed the single malt Imperial IPA you see here: brewed with Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsener Malt for a lighter body, and the most hops we’ve ever poured into a beer. Citra, Mosaic, and Moteuka hops shine through with a citrusy mojito-esque punch of lupulin. Here’s to 300 more!

Sometimes you just need some extra time, for that reason we brewed this Belgian sipper to see you through to the end. The beer tips off with aromas of sweet dark fruit and carmelized sugar.

New Brew: Godspeed

“If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years on this planet, it’s that the happiest and most fulfilled people I’ve known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their own self interest.”
– John Glenn

Our Space-Grant series of beers seek to celebrate those that adventure beyond the Earth’s limits. We use mysteriously dark roasted malts and celestial Comet, Summit, Galaxy, Bravo, Mosaic, and Amarillo hops to give this beer a complex roastiness and fruity hop profile.

Glory, for Club and City

Our partnership with the Crew SC began in 2015, and collaborating with the team is something we look forward to each year. In 2016 we were awarded the Corporate Partnership Activation of the Year based on efforts around Glory. The 2017 season officially kicks off on March 4th with the home opener against the Chicago Fire, but we’ve been preparing for the last couple of months, making sure Glory is ready for the big day.

From the first discussion around Glory, we knew we wanted to make sure the fans had a say in the style and ingredients. As loyal supporters, ourselves wanted to develop Glory with others like us and assembled a panel of fans who would help us decide the beer style, ingredients, and name. We produced two batches of both black and gold beers that were put up for a vote. After two rounds of taste tests, the Citra based American Wheat was announced the winner and we got moving on the first full batch. The name ‘Glory,’ was a natural fit, derived from the longstanding supporter chant, “Glory to Columbus!”

We are constantly seeking to improve our beers from year to year, and this year’s version of Glory includes the Huell Melon hop, addeded toward the end of the boil. This addition brings enhanced melon centric aromas with subtle notes of strawberry and citrus, amplifying the already fruity aroma of the beer. We like to think that it’s a beer light and refreshing enough for hot summer days in the Nordecke, but flavorful enough to drink at a bar taking in an away match.

The Gory launch festivities will begin in the Taproom at noon on February 26th for both cans and drafts. 6-packs will roll out to retailers the next day and drafts will be available throughout the city for the Crew SC home opener on March 4th at 1pm, after the official draft launch event on March 3rd, with our friends at 4th Street Bar & Grill, starting at 5pm.

On Opening Day, we hope to see you at the Taproom, where we’ll be celebrating the season kick-off, starting at noon. If you’re also attending the game, be sure to stop by our stand inside Mapfre, located in the lower concourse on the East side os the stadium.

Here’s to a new Crew SC season and Glory to Columbus!

New Brew: Trips Right

LG_TripsRight_11x17_Poster_v1

The brainchild of our newest brewer, Dan Shaffer, Trips Right is a German IPA available on draft. We asked him to share a little insigth on the development of this limited release brew…

LG_TripsRight_11x17_Poster_v1

What was your inspiration for this beer?
The wife and I took a trip to Provence when I was studying for my Brewing degree in Scotland, and on a wine tour I had an amazing white wine with very a fresh melon/musty grape flavor, and I’ve always wanted to capture that in beer. I’ve used Hallertau Blanc hops in homebrewed saisons with varying levels of success, but now that I’ve paired it with Huell Melon hops in an IPA I think I’ve pretty much nailed it.

Tell us a little bit about the name, Trips Right
Trips Right is a football formation where three receivers line up in a bunch to the right. Trips in this case also means a figurative trip to the right (or east) on a map to Germany. Thus the three German hops in this beer, Magnum, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon.

What do you love about this beer?
I like it because it captures a unique flavor profile in the friendly confines of an IPA. Not all IPA’s have to be piney/citrusy/tropical, and at 5.5% abv you can actually drink a pint or two.


This German IPA lines up in with three varieties of German hops split out to the right. Delivering almost wine-like flavors of green grape and cantaloupe and aromas of musty grape, gooseberry, and clementine this is a straw-colored medium body IPA with a few tricks up its sleeve.
