Columbus Crew SC is proud to be an MLS original. We’re the first club in Major League Soccer, one of the original 10. This year, we’re celebrating our 21st season with a special poster series.

“Matchday Originals” highlights Crew SC’s 2016 matches against teams that have been there from the beginning.

Walt Keys, Creative Director at Land-Grant Brewing Company, is the creative force behind the poster series. We have a feeling you’re gonna love his work.

If you want to get your hands on one of these limited-edition posters, head to Land-Grant on game day for each “Matchday Originals” clash. But hurry. Only 96 copies of each poster will be screen printed by hand and sold for $15 a piece. The proceeds will benefit the Crew SC Foundation.

So, without further ado, meet the “Matchday Originals.”

Raise a Can For Columbus



Save-the-Date, you’ll want to be joining us in the taproom on Sunday March 6th as we, in conjunction with the mighty Columbus Crew SC’s 2016 opener, launch our supporter beer, Glory. Glory is an American Wheat Ale with Citra hops, the perfect beer for tailgating from March until December.

Starting March 6th, Glory will be on draft at the taproom and select draft accounts around town, and will be available in six-packs of cans both in the taproom and fine Columbus area retailers.

In addition to launching the brew at noon, we’ll also be hosting the official Columbus Crew SC watch party for the opening match against Portland. The Crew’s march to the MLS Cup kicks-off at 4:30pm, don’t miss it.

We’ll have plenty of Crew-centric giveaways, more details on those specifics to come.

Crew Beer Taste-Off: Black vs. Gold


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.






Glory to Columbus. Land-Grant is a Proud Partner of Columbus Crew SC!


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
