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.

Buildout Update : Demo

Nails

Now that the building has been secured and the site plan has been approved by the East Franklinton Review Board, we can finally start getting our hands dirty. While we wait to receive our permits to begin construction proper, we’ve pulled a Removal Start permit which allows us to start some interior demo to get the old building ready for its facelift. It’s amazing to see the transformation taking place, even so early on. We’ve been documenting the whole process, and we’ve got some photos to share.

Not Available

We were awfully excited to pull this sign down.

Original Wall

Windows

One of the first things we did was strip back the wallpaper and drywall to see what kind of condition the original façade was in. To our great surprise, not only was the brick in great shape, but the original windows were still intact.

Salvage

We’ve been careful to pull out any materials we think we can reclaim and salvage for various uses throughout the facility.

We’ll be sure to post more photos as we move forward to give you a sense of our progress and give you a look behind the curtain of assembling a brewery. So, stay tuned…
