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.

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 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.

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.”
