Land Grant is a large brewery in Franklinton that boasts an indoor taproom and one of the largest outdoor beer gardens in the area. The brewery has a stacked roster of ~20 beers on tap and a Ray Ray’s food truck outside. Land Grant is a great place to grab a beer and hang out on any day/night of the week, but they also put on some amazing events and festivals.
During the warmer months (late April - early October) they host a Beer Garden Music Series on their outdoor stage every Thursday and Sunday featuring primarily local artists. These shows feature one artist each night for three hours. They also have live music at most of their special events during the warmer months such as this year’s Strawberry Jam, Backyard BBQ, and our first ever Patchbay Music Festival. The beer garden is massive and offers plenty of seating options as well as an empty space in front of the stage. Land Grant is one of the few places that provides weekly live music in an outdoor setting making it a unique place to catch some tunes or play a show.
Land Grant does their booking a little differently. They seem to book all of their music series shows for the whole year well in advance. All of the slots for 2019 are filled, and they’ll likely book their shows for 2020 late this year/early next year. So if you’re interested in one of the slots for 2020 it would be wise to reach out sooner than later. You can do so by following the link below and submitting an inquiry on their contact page. There’s a dropdown list with an option for those who are interested in performing at the venue.
