Can Release: 1862 and Stiff-Arm

Can_aunch_Graphic

We’ve been eagerly anticipating this day since we launched our Kickstarter campaign back in February of 2012. Cans are here and being filled. We’ll offer them to the public for the very first time this upcoming Saturday, May 30th.

We’re launching the can program with two beers: 1862 Ale and Stiff-Arm IPA. 1862 (our American Kölsch) is a lighter crisp beer with a touch of hop aroma; the ideal beer for BBQs, golf courses, camping trips, and boat rides—in other words, the perfect beer for summer. Stiff-Arm brings a fruity hop punch reminiscent of the west-coast, and now you can take that hoppy goodness wherever you please.

Join us Saturday from Noon ’til Midnight, have a pint or two and grab a six-pack to-go*! Following the launch on Saturday, you’ll start to see the cans out in the wild over the next few weeks.

*Limit one case per style per customer.

Glory to Columbus. Land-Grant is a Proud Partner of Columbus Crew SC!

LG_Crew_launch_Poster_v1

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

Vandalized!

In the early morning hours of Sunday, December 7 2014, our barn-wood facade was vandalized by some “artists.” It’s a tough thing to see something you worked your ass off on be disrespected in such a blatant and targeted fashion. None-the-less, for every lazy vandal in town there’s countless more folks working to benefit both our awesome neighborhood of Franklinton and Columbus as a whole, and we wanted to take this careless act and use it to shine a light on some of the folks working towards a positive end. Thus we’re taking pre-orders on this t-shirt here, and we’ll donate 100% of the proceeds to our incredible neighbors, the Gladden Community House and The Harmony Project.

We’ll be taking pre-orders for these up until Christmas and will ship them out early in the New Year. Help us take something ugly and turn it into something great.

Save the Date: Land-Grant Opens October 18th!

LG_Grand_Opening_Graphic

It has been a long haul since completing our successful Kickstarter campaign all the way back in March of 2012, and we’re beyond excited to finally announce that the doors to Land-Grant Brewing Company will officially open to the public on Saturday, October 18th!

A lot of blood,sweat, and beers went into building the brewery and brewing our first batches, and we can’t wait to open the doors, let the public in, and share our beer with you. There are still details to come for the Opening, but you can expect: Land-Grant Beer on draft, some delicious guest taps, Brewery tours, a tasty food truck, and a whole lot of toasting.

You can follow along at the event’s official Facebook page as we fill in some of the details of the day. See you in a few weeks!

Let’s Try This Again…

Land-Grant Rendering

If you’ve been following the Land-Grant story, you may have read about –and possibly shared in– our excitement back in August, when we announced that we’d found a building for our brewery and taproom. That excitement lasted for exactly two blog posts until our landlord unceremoniously backed out on the deal, leaving us in a lurch. Well, today is the day we officially put all that unpleasantness behind us. Today is the day we announce that we’ve found a new home. 424 W.Town Street in Franklinton will be Land-Grant’s (New) Home Court!

Franklinton has always been on our radar as a great potential location for the brewery, but it wasn’t until recently that the building we would ultimately commit to became available. We’ve spent a good deal of time in the neighborhood over the past few months and the spirit, enthusiasm and ethic in the area is palpable. We can’t wait to join motivated and creative neighbors like 400 West Rich, Strongwater, the Columbus Idea Foundry, Rehab Tavern, Orange Barrel Media, Glass Axis, the Franklinton Tap Room and Wood.Metal.Art in building Franklinton into a cultural destination.

A little bit about our new space. The 12,000 square-foot facility was built in the 1920’s and was originally home to the Capital Lift & Manufacturing Company who used it to build elevators (here it is in those days). It has since seen a couple of additions, and lays out perfectly for a production brewery with an up-front taproom. The production space is large enough that we will be able to brew at the quantity and quality we’ve always envisioned while leaving room to expand into in the coming years. The tasting room will lay out nicely in the building’s front addition along Town Street, for which we’ve got some special plans that we’ll share with you soon. We’ve been working tirelessly with Mode Architects and Compton Construction on the design and permitting process and are hoping to break ground on construction soon. For now, there’s a lot of work to be done, we’re just happy to have a place to do it.
