Coalition Brewing is excited to announce the release of the first commercially produced Cannobidoil (CBD) infused beer in Oregon. Their mission with this beer series was to encompass a true collaboration of these “kissing cousins”, hops and cannabis. These two plants produce similar organic aromatic compounds known as terpenes, and will have no THC present, the psychoactive element found in marijuana. Coalition Brewing has been working with leaders in this immensely fast growing local industry on this project to showcase a harmony of both the beer profile of the Pacific NW and the Cannabis plant. This new emerging industry has many hallmarks of their own industry, with a focus on community, innovation and a positive impact to the local economy. Coalition Brewing are excited that beer once again is giving them the opportunity and platform of breaking down barriers.
The base style is a west coast IPA that is light, crisp, bitter and refreshing. But we've also infused this beer with CBD. The bitter grassiness augments the hop bitterness, while the citrusy terpenes in the CBD mirror the aromatics and hop flavors.
