We’re excited to announce the release of two special edition beers within their Sea-Grant Beer Series; Stevesy (5.5% ABV), a refreshing Helles Lager and Deep Search (7.7% ABV), a robust Baltic Porter. Deep Search arrives for its third year with much anticipation after a successful run in cans and on draft in 2015 and 2016. Stevesy debuted last year as a very limited release that was extremely well received in the Land-Grant Taproom and will be rolling out this year as a more widespread release in cans and on draft.
As the first two beers in what should be a packed 2017 beer lineup, both Stevesy and Deep Search were brewed and developed with adventure in mind. The brew team explored a different strain of yeast for both beers, and in order to achieve a beer as big as Deep Search, required them to brew the much lighter, Stevesy, a Helles Lager, to prepare the yeast for the task of fully fermenting Deep Search. Both beers lagered for 6 weeks, which makes for a heightened finish.
This launch is also in conjunction with the debut of the Land-Grant Collectors Club card series, an opportunity for the first patrons who visit the taproom and purchase a 6-pack to commemorate the beer and branding with a special edition collector’s card. This new program will run throughout 2017 for certain seasonal, limited, and special release beers, and cards can then be redeemed for specials and gifts throughout the year.
Stevesy will be available on draft and in six packs “to go” in the Land-Grant Taproom beginning Monday, January 2nd and Deep Search will debut on Thursday, January 5th. Six packs of both will roll out to grocery and specialty retailers beginning January 9th and drafts outside of the Land-Grant taproom will be available after the official planned launch event, January 12th at PiNS Mechanical
