Franklinton District and Land-Grant Brewery Social
The Scioto River and its acres of trails and parklands separate downtown from Frankliton to the west. Franklinton, first settled in 1797, is experiencing a renaissance as a new center for the city's maker culture and independent art scene. Arts collectives like 400 West Rich Street, the Columbus Idea Foundary and Glass Axis are open to visit, and often host late-night events in their industrial spaces. Dining options veer toward the casual, with Strongwater Food and Spirits, the brand new BrewDog Franklington and Land-Grant Brewing Company leading the way. COSI, on of the nation's top science museums, graces the west bank of the Scioto, and across Broad Street is the new National Veterans Memorial and Museum- Experience Columbus.
Land-Grant Brewing Company
Land-Grant Brewing Company is a production craft brewery in the historic Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. In 2012, a kickstarter campaing was undertaken by a couple of Ohio State alumni to test viability of the local brewery and after succesful completion of the campaign Land-Grant opened its door in 2014. Ray Ray's Food Truck, a food truck specializing in BBQ, is located on the facility grounds and is open Thursday-Sunday.
