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.

Land-Grant 2017 Release Schedule

cans

Thanks for making 2016 an amazing year for our little brewery! We’ve been hard at work churning out beer for all of your holiday endeavors, but we’ve also been diligently conspiring and plotting our course for 2017. And that means devising a road map for 2017 releases, which you can see below. Like any map, sometimes detours and reroutes are necessary, and who knows there may be a few surprise stops along the way, but this is generally speaking where we’re going in 2017, so pack accordingly. Speaking outside of my roadtrip metaphor, these are the beers we’re hoping to package this year (with most of these available in cans) but we’ll definitely mix in some fun limited releases, collaborations, and barrel aged fun that is not reflected in this chart. We’ve got some fun things planned for the next year, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Introducing the Land-Grant Collector’s Club!
In our brief two year existence, we’ve been proud to release over 40 different beers. Some of those were large scale year round releases, some were taproom only small batches, but they each came with their own collectible trading card. What started as a fun way to identify our beers in a tasting flight has taken on a life of its own, and we’ve developed a legion of dedicated card collectors here in Columbus.

We wanted to take this collection obsession to the next level, so we’re excited to announce the launch of the Land-Grant Collector’s Club. For each can release in 2017, we will have 50 limited edition collector cards available for the first 50 people to come in and pick up a six pack or pint of a newly launched (or relaunched) beer. Of course, each release will also be accompanied by its standard card as well which will be available throughout the beer’s run. To up the stakes a bit, if you collect multiple Collector’s Club cards throughout the year, we’ll reward you with some special Land-Grant swag:

4 Cards / Special Edition Koozy
8 Cards / Collector’s Club’s Club pint glass
12 cards / Super limited edition Land-Grant T-Shirt!

New Brew: Home

lg_home_11x17_poster_v1

We’re excited to announce the release of a new India Pale Lager, Home, to commemorate the 5th consecutive World Cup Qualifying cycle being held in Columbus, Ohio. Brewed specifically for the November 11th USA-Mexico match, Home will be served at Mapfre Stadium. This limited release will also be available on tap and in six packs from the Land-Grant taproom, as well as within select fine craft beer retailers throughout Columbus.

Our president and co-founder had this to say on the commemorative brew… “Since before the brewery was even open, U.S. Soccer has been a huge part of Land-Grant.We watched the 2014 World Cup in the brewery during construction, and we’ve had incredible experiences at US-Mexico matches in the past. Once we heard the announcement that Columbus would, once again, host the game, we knew we had to brew up something special to commemorate it.”

New Brew: Session 71

LG_Session71_11x17_Poster_v1

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.

Crew SC Supporter Beer Taste-Off – Round 2!

LG_Crew2

A few weeks ago, we called on Crew SC Supporters to join us at the taproom and help us taste-test 4 different test batches of beer (two gold and two black), and the American Wheat won big. We also asked for input on each style of beer, and we’ve taken those recommendations seriously. Join us again on Saturday, August 22nd (leading up to the home Sporting KC match) and grab a flight of 4 variations on the American Wheat. Cast your vote, and the winner heads straight for the production, and will be debuted at Mapfre Stadium when the Crew take on Portland, September 26th.

We’ve got a ton of tickets to give away, and if you missed out on the limited edition Crew/Land-Grant glasses (pictured below), this is your chance to get your hands on one.

Tasting sets include a flight of all four brews, a commemorative Crew/Land-Grant glass, a full pour of the non-Crew Land-Grant beer of your choice, and the chance to win tickets to the Crew/Kansas City match. The tastings start at 2pm, and at 6pm, we’ll open the taps for full pour of the supporter beers (we want to make sure everyone has a chance to taste all four). If you’re not headed to the stadium that day, we’ll have the match on with audio at 7:30pm.

Crew Beer Taste-Off: Black vs. Gold

Party_Graphic2

Saturday in the taproom we hosted a tasting party to determine the beer that will move forward as our Crew SC supporter beer. We brewed up four test batches (two black, and two gold) and asked the supporter community to cast their vote. Participants picked their favorite beer, offered up feedback, and even threw in a name suggestion or two. In the end, the American Wheat (CB02) was crowned champion and will go back to the brew lab for further recipe tweaking. Look for the beer later on this summer.
