Land-Grant 1862 Kolsch

In 1862, President Lincoln signed the Morrill Act into law, giving the American populous the opportunity to seek a higher education. It called and provided for one great state university in each state of the Union and inadvertently led to tailgate parties, marching bands, fight songs and Bowl Games.

As Justin Morrill proposed to put a degree in the people’s right hand, the Land-Grant Brewing Company seeks to put a quality beer in the left. Our 1862 Ale –a dry-hopped American take on the classic German beer– combines the crisp clean flavor of German malt with the aromatics of its American hops.
