New Brew: Four Pillars

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum and Land-Grant Brewing Company are proud to announce their collaborative beer commemorating the Memorial and Museum’s first anniversary on the Scioto Peninsula in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

“We are proud to honor all Veterans, connect our communities, inspire our nation and educate every generation about the importance of service and sacrifice,” says Lt. General Michael Ferriter, US Army (Retired), President and CEO of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. “When we learned about the many ways Land-Grant supports our communities through storytelling, we were excited to explore opportunities to celebrate Veterans’ contributions to our nation together.”

The beer draws its name from the foundational pillars of the Museum and Memorial’s stated mission to: Honor, Connect, Inspire, and Educate.

“When on our tours of the Museum, our guides were always coming back to this idea of Four Pillars” says Land-Grant co-founder and President, Adam Benner. “The striking architecture of the building doesn’t actually have any columns in the traditional sense, so these conceptual pillars are really what hold up the Museum as a world class institution, one we’re beyond proud to have here in Columbus and to call our neighbors.”

Our collaborative can design draws inspiration from the Museum’s Remembrance Gallery exhibit featuring brilliant stained glass representing major military campaign medals dating back to the Civil War. The medals encircle an infinitely reflected, folded flag that once flew over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

“We took several trips to Museum and Memorial during the course of developing this beer, and there is so much to pull out of those round walls, it’s an infinite source of inspiration” says Land-Grant co-founder and Creative Director, Walt Keys. “As soon as we went upstairs to the Remembrance Gallery and roof amphitheater the view of the light pouring through the campaign medal ribbons really struck me as a profound and visual representation of the stories the Museum and Memorial exists to tell.”

Four Pillars is a Pale Ale clocking in at 5.3% ABV and featuring Ekuanot, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a grapefruit and citrus flavor profile.

Four Pillars Pale Ale will be available on draft and available six packs of cans ($9.99) at the Land-Grant taproom starting Friday, October 18th with distribution to Central Ohio craft beer retailers beginning the following Monday, October 21. A portion of the proceeds from Four Pillars Pale Ale will directly benefit the mission of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.

This beer is brewed to commemorate the first anniversary of Columbus’ National Veterans Memorial and Museum which was founded under the four guiding pillars to Honor, Connect, Inspire and Educate. Proceeds from this beer directly benefit its mission.

Our collaborative can design draws inspiration from the Museum’s Remembrance Gallery exhibit featuring brilliant stained glass representing major military campaign medals dating back to the Civil War. The medals encircle an infinitely reflected, folded flag that once flew over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. See more at nationalvmm.org.

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.

New Brew: Kin

This is Nik’s beer—a Kölsch-style Golden Ale, brewed with Agave Nectar, Tropical Hops and Nik in mind. Beer builds community, and we were honored to have Nik at the center of ours. He was a soft-spoken soul who could summon a roar, a roots rock king with tropical panache, and a man who taught us all how lucky we are to have one another. Proceeds from this beer benefit the Dick & Jane Project.
