Session 71 is a Session IPA brewed brewed in two collaborative sessions with our Cleveland based friends, Platform Beer Company. Each batch brewed the same base beer, but each brewery utilized a different dry-hop regimen. Here at Land-Grant we dry-hopped the beer with Summer and Mosaic hops lending the beer a citrusy apricot aroma. Platform opted to use Azacca, giving their rendition plenty of Mango, Papaya, and Orange notes.

Even our designers got in on the collaborative fun, with our Creative Director, Walt, creating the Platform can; and Platform’s designer, Mark, designing ours.

Brewed with our friends at Hoof Hearted Brewing, and inspired by the classic film, Goodfellas, this Black IPA achieves a dark, dank, and smoky hop experience. During the boil, the brew teams screened the film and timed the hop additions around key plot points, the result is a beer that, as far back as it can remember, always wanted to be a gangster.

Land-Grant First Anniversary Recap

This past weekend marked one year in business for Land-Grant. It’s been a wild first 365, and to celebrate, we threw a big party on Saturday and invited all of our friends. We had great live music from Thunder Buddies, Yellow Paper Planes, Colin Mills, and Comrade Question. The Land-Grant brew team created some amazing limited release beers for the event, and put out a full menu of beer. Our brewery pals sent an amazing assortment of special guest drafts that were poured from the Daily Growler truck.We also put together the video above that assembles a full year of photos into a quick hitting annual recap. Thanks to everyone who came out, Cheers!

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

CBC 2014: A Mile High Recap

1515071_1423433311241180_764062685_n

Last week the Land-Grant team took a little field trip to one of America’s craft brewing mecca’s: Denver, Colorado. We headed west to attend our second Craft Brewer’s Conference, we learned a lot, met a ton of awesome people, got a little time on the slopes and generally had a blast.

For those who are unfamiliar with CBC, there are essentially three aspects to the event:

1. The Conference CBC provides educational seminars on everything from Sustainability to Distribution to “Selling your Beer in Sweden using the Systembolaget.” No matter your role in the brewing process there is knowledge to be gleaned at CBC.

2. BrewExpo America Throughout CBC, a brewing trade show runs concurrently to the conference It gives brewers a glimpse of all the latest toys for making, packaging, selling, and serving their beer. Leave your wallet at home.

3. The Events Once the convention show has closed its doors for the day, that’s when the real fun starts. Breweries save some of their best stuff for tapping during CBC, and love throwing parties to celebrate the occasion. For instance, Lagunitas and Left Hand joined forces and hosted a blow-out bash at the Fillmore Auditorium and booked the Funky Meters to provide the soundtrack. There’s no shortage of things to do—or beers to try—after hours at CBC.

Beyond the official events, the real highlight of CBC is the opportunity to meet your fellow brewers—from the midwest and around the world—in person. We were thrilled to meet folks from Mad Tree, Country Boy, Braxton Brewing, Seventh Son, 4String, Elevator, Wolf’s Ridge, Beau’s All-Natural Brewing Co., Columbus Brewing Co., Vitruvian, Brewery X, Grist, and a whole bunch more.

Speaking of Grist Brewing, on Wednesday night our brewhouse manufacturer, Sprinkman, invited us to visit their brewery and taproom. We hopped on a bus to their facility, and spent a few great hours sampling their beers and checking out their setup. Their brewhouse was of particular interest to us, as it is, essentially, the same Sprinkman system that we will be brewing on here in Columbus. They brewed a batch of their tasty Berliner Weisse while we were there and it was a joy to see the system in motion in a real brewery setting.

All in all, it was an amazing week that began sunny and 70° and ended atop Vail Mountain in a blizzard. We had a fabulous time in Denver, and are already looking forward to CBC 2015 in Portland, Oregon.
