Columbus, Ohio — Land-Grant Brewing Company —along with Athens Ohio’s Little Fish Brewing—is excited to announce the release of their new collaborative Nordic Pilsner, Field to Fjord.
The easy drinking beer—originally planned for a March 2020 brew—was brewed with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. Ohio-grown and malted pilsner and blue corn make for a crackery, earthy base. Michigan crystal hops lend the beer a floral bouquet, and the brew’s namesake quick-fermenting (and energy efficient) Oslo yeast give the beer a light, fruity presence.
“It was great to collaborate in a meaningful way such that each brewer brought some expertise to the table: Little Fish’s experience using malted corn and Land-Grant’s kveik psuedo-lager weirdness. We really enjoyed having them up for the day and sharing some beers, some brewing knowledge, and more than a few laughs,” says Land-Grant Head Brewer, Dan Shaffer. “It’s kind of hard to believe that we started talking about this beer more than a year ago, but it’s great that it’s finally here.”
This release marks the first collaboration between the Columbus-based Land-Grant and the Athens-based Little Fish.
“It was awesome to collaborate with our friends at Land-Grant on a beer that showcases our similar values of brewing as sustainably as possible, and supporting local agriculture,” says Little Fish co-founder Sean White. “Plus, since we don’t can beer at Little Fish, we are extra-stoked to collaborate with a brewery that can package our collaboration beer into six-pack cans. Can’t wait to crush some cans of Field to Fjord with the Land-Grant crew in the near future!”
The beer will be available as a limited release on Wednesday, February 24th, and will be available at select grocery stores, bottle shops, and craft beer retailers. It will also be available to enjoy in the Land-Grant Taproom and Beer Garden, and will be available to order online for local delivery or shipment throughout Ohio by visiting Land-Grant Brewing’s website. Little Fish will also have the beer available in cans at their Athens taproom. A six pack of 12oz. cans of Field to Fjord retails for $9.99 and is 5.8% abv.
