A new kind of craft beer.

Craft brews for how we live now.

CBD, the non-intoxicating cannabinoid of cannabis, is more popular than ever, showing up in everything from activewear to lip balm. CBD doesn’t produce any mind-altering effects and is federally legal (albeit with a few caveats), which means it is accessible to adults nation-wide who want to take advantage of cannabis’ non-intoxicating properties.

Once the alcohol is removed, a cannabis nano emulsification is infused into the liquid, which provides more than one benefit, as Lyden Henderson COO of Outbound Brewing explains:

First and foremost, it’s worth noting that CBD-infused beer doesn’t have alcohol. In fact, neither style of cannabis-infused beer contains any alcohol. Production for both types of beverages is very similar, starting with the development of the non-alcoholic flavor base that will satisfy beer drinkers, most commonly achieved by de-alcoholizing a traditionally brewed beer.

What does CBD beer do?

“[in addition to] suspending properly into a liquid, you also get a higher bioavailability and faster uptake time with nano emulsification. It’s actually an ideal delivery system for cannabis products. This improved delivery was an unintended benefit of a process originally designed to avoid separation between the beer and liquid cannabis solution.”

In addition to production basics, THC and CBD beer both serve similar markets. One primary customer of cannabis beer is someone looking to minimize or eliminate alcohol consumption, while still enjoying a delicious and effective beverage. “Our ideal customer is anybody who is looking to enjoy fun flavored carbonated drinks, and interested in living a healthy lifestyle…[our products] are great for people who want to moderate their alcohol intake, including recovering alcoholics, or those with an allergy to alcohol,” says Lyden.

The major difference between CBD beer and THC beer is the effect that each produces. THC-infused beers induce the typical mind-altering feelings of being high, with the strength of the effects dependent on the dose and number of servings consumed. CBD infusions, on the other hand, will produce effects that are not mind-altering at all. Consumers report feelings of relaxation and mood improvement.

No, it doesn’t get you high in the traditional weed sense. CBD doesn’t have the intoxicating effects associated with THC.

While most of the existing so-called weed beers replace alcohol with THC, swapping one mind-altering substance for the other, there is currently only one CBD only beer brand available in the United States: Outbound Brewing. There are several hemp beer brands in the UK, such as Hop & Hemp Brewing Co. and Green Times Brewing. There have been other companies that attempted to pioneer the CBD beer scene as early as 2017, like the Two Flowers IPA from Coalition Brewing and Medicator from Longtrail Brewing Co. (who now makes CBD seltzer), both with short runs and ultimately halting production or shutting down.

Customers also want to enjoy the effects without smoking, as Henderson explains: “you can’t always smoke a joint or rip a bong in a social situation… but you can drink our beers in front of people.” By incorporating cannabis into an already socially intuitive format, it integrates easily into existing cultural norms: a beer before or after dinner, by the grill with friends, casually enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle and free of illicit implications.

Getting around the red tape.

Nano emulsifications can be made relatively neutral, allowing the producer more control over the final flavor profiles. Below are the current offerings from Outbound Brewing with tasting notes for each one.

“CBD can be sold as a dietary supplement, but infused in food or beverage, it is considered an adulterated product. we are expanding into unknown territory,” admits Henderson, noting that “the CBD industry as a whole is waiting with bated breath for the FDA to make legislative updates that were hinted at in press releases in February.”

Like so many cannabis products, there is significant bureaucratic and legal red tape delaying the development and widespread availability of CBD beer. Henderson describes the CBD beverage world as “a little bit of the wild west” compared to the THC side, which has mandatory testing and is more regulated. THC-infused beers have a similar status as edibles, which can be legally bought and sold in select states where medicinal and recreational use is allowed. CBD beers, on the other hand, are stuck between two worlds.

First, the most pressing question: does CBD beer get you high?

Does CBD beer have alcohol?

While the current legislative murkiness is problematic, Henderson is confident that “there is better opportunity with CBD [versus THC] in the short term” when thinking of a brand that can cross state lines:

“CBD is a hot topic with a high level of interest. CBD products are flying off the shelves, so if you get a good brand that you can back with science, there’s a lot of opportunity for rapid growth.”

The lack of clear legal status, higher price points than regular edibles, and the need for refrigerated storage present real challenges.

While not all CBD is created equal, infusing it into beverages for mind and body relaxation is a growing trend, with drinks like VYBES, Recess, and Beam in full swing. As of 2020, the craft beer industry has also made its first foray into the world of non-alcoholic CBD infusions.

CBD beer is expanding the reach of the cannabis-infused beer industry to include those who do not want the psychoactive effects of cannabis, but still want to enjoy the benefits (and taste) of infused beer.

Coalition has altered its formulations several times to comply with changing laws. In March, the federal government ordered Long Trail Brewing Co., in Vermont, to stop sales of a CBD-infused beer called Medicator because nonstandard beer ingredients such as hemp require special approval. A similar fate befell Black Hammer Brewing in San Francisco; in May, it ceased production of its CBD beers.

An early and prominent proponent of CBD-infused beer is Coalition Brewing, of Portland, Ore. In 2016, the brewery released the bitter, citrusy Two Flowers I.P.A., containing hemp juice and four milligrams of CBD per 12-ounce serving. (It removed the hemp juice after federal rules changed.)

Simply adding CBD to beer may not guarantee sales. “If I’m a user of CBD, I’m probably not looking for it in an alcoholic beverage,” said Chris Furnari, the editor of Brewbound, which covers the beer industry. “It’s similar to looking for protein in your vodka or beer.”

Since California legalized recreational use of marijuana last January, Lagunitas (now owned by Heineken) has entered the cannabis marketplace with Hi-Fi Hops, a collaboration between the brewery and cannabis-extract manufacturer CannaCraft. Released in July, the drink is a hopped sparkling water infused with THC and packaged in 12-ounce bottles .

“We’ve had to hide these things,” said Freddy Bensch, who helped found the Atlanta brewery in 1997.

That world is rooted in a familiar relationship: Marijuana and hops — the flowers that impart bitterness, aroma and flavor to beer — both belong to the Cannabaceae plant family. Many varieties of marijuana and hops share aromatic signatures, from citrusy to resinous.

As laws relax on recreational use, marijuana derivatives — from THC to terpenes — are showing up in beers and nonalcoholic drinks.

That may require transforming Americans’ attitudes toward marijuana. “Right now, there isn’t a socially acceptable way to consume cannabis with friends and family ,” said Keith Villa, who retired this year from MillerCoors, where, as head brewmaster, he created the influential Blue Moon Belgian White.

In June, SweetWater removed the cloak by releasing 420 Strain G13 I.P.A. It mimics the dank pungency of the G13 variety of marijuana — minus the high — by blending hops, hemp flavor and terpenes , organic compounds that are responsible for the distinctive fragrances of plant products from oranges to pine trees to, yes, cannabis.

Breweries say they are willing to leap over legal hurdles, in part, because cannabis and its associated compounds can deliver novel aromas, flavors and experiences. This allows beers to differentiate themselves in a crowded market. “It’s like a whole new world of hops has opened up,” Mr. Bensch said.

He hopes to change that: In March, Mr. Villa announced the creation of Ceria Beverages, a company in Arvada, Colo., that will make nonalcoholic craft beers infused with small doses of THC. The first, a Belgian-style white ale called Grainwave, will go on sale in Colorado dispensaries in mid-December, with five milligrams of THC (a standard amount for edibles like gummies) per 10-ounce bottle.

“There’s nothing better than watching a consumer pop a G13 cap, put it to his nose, take that first smell and see his eyes light up,” Mr. Bensch said. Within two months, G13 became SweetWater’s second-best-selling draft beer available year-round.

Hi-Fi Hops comes in several different strengths and is sold only in marijuana dispensaries, where cannabis drinks accounted for $58 million in nationwide sales last year, according to the firms Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. That may seem minuscule compared with overall American beer sales — $111 billion last year, according to the Brewers Association — but Mr. Magee is playing the long game.

Lagunitas, founded in 1993, has long championed cannabis. It calls its experimental beers the One Hitter Series, referring to a small marijuana pipe. Its copper ale was renamed Censored in 2002 after the federal government banned a proposed label for Kronik, a variation on a cannabis nickname .

For more than two decades, SweetWater Brewing Company’s best-seller has been its floral 420 Extra Pale Ale, the numerals slyly nodding to the beer’s April 20 birth date and the brewery’s fondness for marijuana: 420 is drug-subculture slang for cannabis.

As state regulations on marijuana have relaxed and recreational use has become legal in several places (most recently Michigan and Canada), breweries have been looking for ways to use cannabis or its derivatives in beverages. The players range from conglomerates like the Corona importer Constellation Brands, which has invested $4 billion in the Canadian marijuana producer Canopy Growth, to small craft brewers.

There’s always a fear that brewers will undercut their own products, but Mr. Bensch doesn’t believe that cannabis will cannibalize beer sales.

The company says it was eager to explore the biological similarities between hops and cannabis, and highlight their crossover aromatics and flavors. “We did not want to make a gimmick beer,” said Phil Boyle, the general manger and an owner. “We wanted to make a beer that could stand by itself, irrespective if it had CBD or not.”
