Land-Grant is launching a series of beers that will help fund projects to reduce the brewery’s environmental impact.

The new Sun-Grant Series is named for and inspired by the Sun-Grant Association, a group of Land-Grant Universities that research and develop sustainable and environmentally friendly bio-based energy alternatives.

The first beer in the series is Ra, a fossil-free Honey Blonde Ale, debuting on draft and in six-packs at the Land-Grant taproom beginning June 1.

All of Land-Grant’s Sun-Grant beers will be brewed using sustainable techniques and ingredients, and $2 from every pint pour and six-pack sold will go towards Land-Grant’s internal Sun-Grant Fund, which will be used to finance equipment upgrades, building improvements and other projects that will continue to reduce our environmental impact.

“What’s really exciting is that we’re relatively small and rapidly growing, so as we pursue sustainability we’re also creating a replicable case study for other breweries and small businesses” said Land-Grant’s Sustainability Manager Vincent Valentino in a statement. “My hope is to be able to share this information year after year—the collaborative spirit of the craft brewing industry—as a way to give back to our Columbus community.”
