WHAT’S ON TAP?

We offer a full variety of seasonal, limited, year-round, and rotating beers across a spectrum of tastes and styles. Tasting flights are available, as well as carry-out options. Below you’ll find our current offerings, updated in real time.

FOOD

Beer goes great with food, and we’re lucky enough to partner with some culinary masters to provide eats to the taproom and beer garden on a daily basis. Ray Ray’s Hog Pit (Food & Wine’s best BBQ in Ohio) serves as our anchor food truck and are open Thursday-Sunday. We also have amazing rotating trucks here to serve you Monday-Wednesday, and bring in additional options for large events and busier days.

RAY RAY’S HOG PIT / Th-Sun / 11:30am-9:00pm


The best Barbecue in Ohio, according to Food + Wine Magazine.

It’s not in the sauce — it’s in your soul. That’s what sets Ray Ray’s Hog Pit apart. You can’t rush barbecue. Select cuts of pork, beef, and chicken are dry rubbed and cooked low and slow for the hint of hickory and honesty of oak that only 12 to 16 hours in a hardwood smoker can create. Traditional and original sauces — sweet and savory, jalapeño to habanero — always on the side, so as not to hide the pink smoke ring only found in authentic barbecue.

We’re really welcoming you back to the farm. So slow down, sit down, and share a meal (and a beer) with friends and neighbors — served outdoors, as barbecue should be.

Launched at the taproom in November 2017, Ray Ray’s is Land-Grant’s dedicated food truck from Thursday through Sunday. All of your Ray Ray’s favorites are on the menu, including smoked ribs, jerk chicken, beef brisket, pulled pork, and more! Beyond sit-down lunch and dinner services, Ray Ray’s and Land-Grant will accommodate carry out customers, party platter preparation, as well as catering services for events taking place in the taproom.

MAPS + PARKING

We’ve got a lot of space down here in Franklinton, we built out most of it ourselves, and we want you to see it all! We whipped up these handy maps to help you out. Explore our taproom, beer garden, patio, Kickstarter Room, brewery, and recreation space below.

Parking can be a little tricky in our neighborhood, so check out the map below for all the parking options in the area. There are tons of meters, free street parking, and large garages within a block or two of the taproom. We also have a small onsite parking lot, and Columbus offers myriad public transportation, rideshare, and taxi options.

Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Can I Get Your Beer Delivered?

You sure can! We deliver beer locally here in the Columbus area, you can see what’s currently available and order yours now at our beer page. If youd like to get out of the house, you can also choose to pick it up at the brewery.

We also offer shiping to all-points in Ohio. 

Unfortunately we are unable to ship outside of Ohio at this time.

Who Distributes Your Beer?

Currently, Land-Grant Beer is distributed in Central Ohio by the Columbus Distributing Company / Delmar Distributing.

Southeast Beverage distributes our beer in Southeast Ohio.

We are self distributed elsewhere in Ohio, including the Dayton area.

If you are interested in carrying Land-Grant beer, please use the contact form above to get in touch.

Do You Distribute to My Town/State?

Currently, Land-Grant Beer is distributed extensively throughout the Columbus and Central Ohio Area. Our beer is also distributed to South East Ohio and the Dayton area. We occasionally send a very limited amount of beer to Cincinnati and Cleveland. We are currently not distributed anywhere outside of the state of Ohio.

Can You Ship Me Beer?

Due to various legalities, cost, and our need to supply our tasting room and local market, we are unable to ship beer at this time.

I'm a collector. Can you send me your stickers or labels?

Sure! Send us a self addressed and stamped envelope, and we’ll drop some stuff int he mail for you.

What does the name “Land-Grant” mean?
Glad you asked. Our name derives from the Morrill Act of 1862, better known as the Land-Grant Act. The Act essentially set aside federal land in each state for the establishment of public Universities, bringing higher education to the masses. There’s at least one Land-Grant school in every state, and that includes our very favorite school, right here in Columbus.
Didn't you used to be called Oval Brewing? Why'd you change the name?
It’s true. Land-Grant was originally the Oval Brewing Company, and that was the name we used during our Kickstarter Campaign. We decided to change the name after discovering a trademark discrepancy. It was a bittersweet change, but in the end we’ve come to love the Land-Grant, and think it fits our brand like a glove.
Who's that guy with the 'burns? Is he an old president?
The old fashioned looking dude you see on the wall behind our bar is none-other than Justin Morrill, the congressman who penned the Land-Grant Act of 1862, which was enacted by president Lincoln.
Why Columbus?
In short…we love it. The long answer is “We’re all from different parts of Ohio, but have all ended up in Columbus at various points and there’s something that just keeps pulling us back. We love its energy, support, sports, culture, diversity, and…beer! It’s been a joy to run our brewery and taproom in the Capital City, and we’re deeply grateful for the Community that’s embraced us.
