Restaurant Roundup: News From Mission Coffee, Land-Grant and more
Columbus has so many new restaurants, expansions, menu updates and other changes, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everything. That’s why our Restaurant Roundup series was designed to keep you informed with the latest and greatest updates. Here’s what’s new in the local dining scene:
Simple Times Mixers
A select number of Simple Times bottled cocktail mixers are now stocked at all nine Local Cantina locations. Their three custom Margarita mixes, Pineapple Coconut, Blood Orange and Strawberry Sage, are available.

Land-Grant Brewing Company
Land-Grant is celebrating Earth Day by launching an all-new Sun Grant Sustainable Beer Fest and continuing their annual series of Sun-Grant beers. Named for the Sun-Grant Association, a group of Land-Grant Universities researching and developing sustainable, bio-based energy alternatives, Sun-Grant beers are made using sustainable methods and ingredients.
This year’s Helios Rustic Lager is made with local honey from the Stratford Ecological Center, as well as pilsner malt from Haus Malts in Cleveland, Michigan-sourced Triple Pearl hops, and a Kyeik yeast strain, which ferments at a lower, energy-efficient temperature.
Helios Rustic Lager will be available by the pint and in six packs of cans at the Land-Grant taproom on Earth Day, Monday, April 22. For every pint and six-pack sold, $2 will go to the brewery’s Sun-Grant Fund, which subsidizes any equipment upgrades, building improvements, and other changes to reduce their environmental impact. Their 2018 Sustainability and Community report will be published with the release of Helios.
The Sun-Grant Sustainable Beer Fest will take place in Land-Grant’s solar powered beer garden on May 4, from 3 to 8 p.m. Other local and national breweries will also attend to showcase their sustainable beers, including Jackie O’s, HiHo, Little Fish, MadTree, Warped Wing, Wolf’s Ridge, Woolly Pig, and Sierra Nevada. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 day-of.
