New Brew: That Was EZ

Sometimes things just fall into place. This German style Zwickelbier is brewed in the traditional fashion, producing a malt forward, bready, hazy beer with a fruity aroma. Named for the Zwickel—the port on a fermentor that allows our brewers to taste the beer along the way—this beer is naturally carbonated giving it a smooth, creamy, dare we say…easy finish.

New Brew: Damn Good Cup of Coffee

That beer you like is going to come back in style…

The big, majestic Douglas Fir forests of the Pacific Northwest conceal many things: owls that aren’t what they seem, supernatural intrigue, a lodge or two, delicious hops, and damn good coffee. This limited release Coffee IPA celebrates the return to the Great Northern by combining Pacific Gem, Cascade, and Citra hops from the region with locally roasted coffee from Bacca. The result is an aromatic beer that will leave you looking below the surface and beyond this realm.

New Brew: Caber

Scots are a traditional folk. Some of their traditions have taken root around the world (see: golf, scotch), and some fly under the radar but are none-the-less distinct. The Caber Toss and the Wee Heavy, both undeniable feets of strenght are two such customs. Tossing an 20 foot log in the air is no small feat, neither is brewing a powerful malt-forward beer like a wee heavy. Our take on this traditional style was brewed with aging in mind—you’ll find quite a few barrels aging on oak in the brewery—and when enjoyed fresh brings a balanced smooth flavor with notes of dates and toffee.

New Brew: Hallertau Blanc 1862

New Brew: Mr. Balloonhands

Who is this guy? A surreally sessionable wheat ale, that drinks like boozy lemonade. This limited release beer was brewed using a kettle souring technique, utilizing lactobacillus to achieve it’s unique tart flavor. It’s the perfect beer for for drinking out of cups on the patio, and blends nicely with our raspberry and Galaxy hop flavored syrups. All said, this beer’s got it going bossa nova. Get real.

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!
