Introducing the Land-Grant Supporter Series

Today Land-Brewing Company we’re very excited to announce the launch of our Supporter Series line of collaboration beers, a project that grew out of its partnership with, and support for, Columbus Crew SC. The Supporter Series teams Land-Grant up with world class breweries from around the country that are closely aligned with their home-town MLS clubs. The series launches with an American Pale Ale brewed for Columbus’ match against Dallas with Texas brewery, Peticolas Brewing, and continues with a Hoppy Saison brewed with Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing Company.

“We created Glory American Wheat—and subsequently, For Columbus Black Lager—as beers brewed specifically for Columbus supporters and their pre and mid-match rituals.” says Land-Grant Co-Founder and President, Adam Benner,“ We knew that we weren’t the only brewery out there with a passion for soccer, and thought it could be fun to bring rival sides together over well crafted beer.”

Brewed to commemorate Columbus’ August 26th match against Dallas, Matchday Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale that combines one of Peticolas’ signature hop bills with one of Land-Grant’s. “This is a massive day for us. Soccer runs throughout our veins,” says Michael Peticolas of Peticolas Brewing Company, “We’ve supported FC Dallas for years and regularly host FC Dallas supporter group tailgates, but nothing beats being able to finally enjoy one of our beers while watching the local club on the pitch.”

The second brew in the series, created for Crew SC’s September 10th match against Kansas City, combines Land-Grant’s supporter beer, Glory American Wheat, with Boulevard’s popular Sporting Saison to create Stoppage Time Hoppy Saison. This beer is a spicy refreshing Saison aged on Missouri Oak and brewed with Ohio Spelt and Honey. “We’ve had a wonderful partnership with Sporting Kansas City over the past few years,” says Boulevard’s Brewmaster, Steven Pauwels, “including the creation of Sporting Saison back in 2015. This seemed like a prime opportunity to take that connection to a new level, and further strengthen those ties between MLS and craft beer. We’re excited to work with Land-Grant and share Stoppage Time with Sporting Kansas City and Columbus Crew SC fans alike.”

Both beers will be available in cans and on draft. Matchday American Pale Ale (Peticolas) will launch in the Land-Grant taproom on Wednesday, August 9 and Stoppage Time Hoppy Saison (Boulevard) will debut on Sunday, August 27. The collaborations will also be available at events leading up to the matches as well as at Mapfre Stadium on the respective matchdays. Both beers will retail for $9.99 per six pack.

New Brew: For Columbus

When we invited the dedicated supporters of Columbus Crew SC to our taproom to taste-test the beer that would become Glory, this deceptive dark brew finished just shy of the top of the table. Despite its dark complexion, For Columbus Black Lager drinks super smooth and easy with just the subtlest touch of roast, making it the perfect beer for a late summer night-match.

New Collaboration Brew: Sports + Jorts

Sports + Jorts are Goses brewed in two collaborative sessions with our friends at Seventh Son Brewing Company. Each batch (one brewed at 7S, one at LG) followed the exact same recipe and processes but utilized different fruit additions at each location. Nods to a couple of our favorite non-alcoholic refreshments, Land-Grant used Lemon and Lime while Seventh Son infused their rendition with Guava and Passionfruit. These tart and salty brews are best tasted side by side, to highlight the two beers similarities and differences.

Homage x Land-Grant All-American BBQ Photos

This past Saturday, we through a massive BBQ cdelebration to launch our HOMAGE collaboration beer, All-American Pale Ale. Ray Ray’s and Oh! Burgers were on the grills. Colin Mills, Osage, Old Middle Modern, Montezuma, and Doc Robinson provided the soundtrack. Bacca Coffee kept us caffeinated, and SOW Movement helped us clean up responsibly. Check out some photos from the day here, and head over to our Facebook page for the full album.

New Brew: All American Pale

There are few patriotic pairs as perfect as stars and stripes, hops and barley, hamburgers and hotdogs, pools and parties… But, falling seamlessly in line with these iconic duos is the All-American mashup of Homage and Land-Grant. This collaborative Pale Ale combines Columbus, Ekuanot, Cashmere, and Comet hops for an herbaceous and citrusy beer that’s right at home in the backyard or the ballpark.

Sustainability at Land-Grant

Brewing beer requires large amounts of energy, agricultural ingredients, packaging material, water, and labor all to ferment and be poured in a single glass. We get hops, malts, and barley from all over the country and the world; boiling and cooling a single batch is incredibly energy intensive; at times a single barrel of beer can require up to six or seven barrels of water to make. If sustainability is best defined as meeting the needs of the present without preventing future generations from meeting their own needs, then brewing without caution to resources can be pretty unsustainable. So we asked ourselves how can we be become a better and more sustainable member of Columbus and the craft brewing industry.

From the beginning, instilling sustainable practices within the Land-Grant business model was something we wanted to do. But in the madness of launching and the small staff with which we started, a focus sustainability took a back seat to existing. Two years and thirty staff members later, we were able to begin focusing in earnest on becoming as sustainable as possible.

The diverse economy of brewing allows us to pursue many different facets of sustainability in our business: energy efficiency, water stewardship, supply chain management, waste management, wastewater diversion, etc. While becoming sustainable will require technological upgrades to our brewhouse and building, it will also require deep community partnerships and an engaged staff.

At the beginning of our third year, we surveyed our staff to find what they thought were the most important environmental changes we could affect as a company. We then aggregated these results, and came up with four major pillars of our new sustainability initiatives:

  1. MITIGATION OF LIFE CYCLE IMPACT
  2. REDUCTION OF CARBON FOOTPRINT
  3. WATER STEWARDSHIP
  4. DEEP COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

These pillars, and the initiatives within them, reflect the common themes that we seek to address in our sustainability program: reduction of greenhouse gases, closing loops, minimizing waste, decreasing our water use, removing our brewing byproduct from our wastewater, lowering the impact of our supply chain, and partnering with different farmers and environmental organizations throughout Columbus and Ohio to make a healthier, better, cleaner world.

We’ve set some aggressive goals for ourselves over the next three years, aiming to greatly reduce our impact, our waste, our emissions and become one of the most-sustainable breweries our size in the midwest. But with enough time, a caring staff, and neighbors we can rely on, we’ll be able to pull it off.

Check out our new sustainability page to learn more about the initiatives we’ve launched in 2017 and check back in the coming months as we get more programs up and running.

New Brew: Urban Sombrero

Combining the spirit of Old Mexico with a little big city panache, Urban Sombrero is a cover-worthy Mexican Style Lager brewed for early summer sipping. Liberty hops provide a floral bouquet and hint of spice to this classic brew. Best enjoyed ice cold in the shade on a hot day, no lime necessary. Vaya con Dios.
