If you’ve been in the taproom lately, surely you’ve noticed our doozy of a Christmas tree. Luckily, when the Land-Grant kith and kin trucked out to chop it down, cameras were rolling…
We’d like to take a moment and wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year! Thanks for enjoying so many great brews with us in 2017, and we look forward to raising a glass in 2018. The taproom is CLOSED today, but will resume regular hours tomorrow.
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.
STYLE: GOSE with LEMON and LIME
ABV: 4.3% IBU: 9
COLLABORATOR SEVENTH SON BREWING COMPANY
MALTS: PILSEN, RED WHEAT
CONTAINER: KEGS / CANS
GLASS: NONIC PINT
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!
We added two major pieces to the brewing facility in the first week of September, two 80 BBL Sprinkman Fermentors, and an 80 BBL Sprinkman Brite tank. The riggers used some amazing skill and ingenuity to maneuver them into place.
Last night we participated in COSI After Dark, our neighbor’s monthly adults-only museum hangout. This months theme was Brewing and Distillation, and the participants each trotted out a demo on some aspect of the brewing or distilling process. Since the ‘I’ in COSI stands for Industry, we decided to tackle to the process of canning beer. We put together the video above to illustrate how the Stiff-Arm IPA gets in that shiny red can.
As part of a larger project, we shot a time-lapse of our happenin’ little corner of East Franklinton. It just so happened a four-alarm fire caught flame and dominated the Columbus Skyline that day. No one was hurt in the blaze, which took place at a pallet factory south of the city.
Did you know that we make all of those sharp looking tap handles you see around town ourselves? We hand paint them in the brewery, laser them next door at the Columbus Idea Foundry, and hand deliver them to each of our accounts, like the fine folks across the street at Strongwater Food and Spirits. Here’s a little video (with a slick soundtrack by Comrade Question) we made to show you the process.
On New Year’s Eve 2014, we set up a stage on the brewery production floor, threw a big party and had our friends Nick D’ and the Believers and Bella Ruse come play. Bella Ruse upped the ante for the evening performing a midnight set of all Prince songs, with the costume and wigs to match. The event required quite a bit of set-up, not to mention clean-up, so naturally we gave it the time-lapse treatment.
The soundtrack to the video is “French Delight” by Nick D’ and the Believers. Buy It Here!
