Land-Grant Brewing Company announced today that they have entered a new partnership with The Nordecke, the official support group of the Columbus Crew. The partnership will include several collaborations between the two organizations – including events, watch parties and fundraisers to bring together and support the Columbus community. 

“We, at The Nordecke, are excited for the announcement of our partnership with Land-Grant Brewing,” said Nordecke Communication Director, Jeffrey Barger. “Land-Grant has been a long-time supporter and prominent part of the Crew community, and we are excited to officially partner with them moving forward.”

Land-Grant, who has been an official partner of the Columbus Crew for the last 7 years, notes that the investment in this relationship with The Nordecke is another important layer of its already deep roots throughout the Columbus soccer community.

“As a perennial Columbus Crew partner and brewer of several supporter beers over the years, it’s only fitting for Land-Grant to partner up with the best supporter group in the league,” Land-Grant’s Tony Cipriani, Director of Strategic Partnerships, said of The Nordecke. “We take pride in the club, our city and our work throughout the community – and we’re excited to work alongside The Nordecke and The Crew, who share these same values”.
