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.
