Awesome stuff, by the way.
The fact of the matter is this is all speculative people are saying why they think it can't be done but since it hasn't been tried extensively due to marijuana's Illegal status words prove nothing no matter how intelligent they seem. Look at Canna Cola its just soda yet their is THC in it and it doesn't have the benefit of having any ingredients that are capable of extracting THC yet somehow it exisits. The question is not whether beer can be made to contain THC but if the resulting beer would be considered a "craft beer" that has merit on a site such as this or just another intoxicant.
my mind was just blown. nice packaging.
The obligatory Michael Jackson beer hunter Brain Death article: http://www.cabezacerveza.org/content/marijuana-beer-or-dont-bogart-beer-my-friend
yeah just found out about the soda yesterday seemed like it was pretty relevant and would shut some people up lol
nice artcle... so, seems like it will probably happen.
yeah they won't even allow caffeine and booze, RIP 4lokos.
they are related so I can see someone making a beer that would pair the two nicely. Although I think It would be more for aroma and not for the effects of cannabis. Something brewed specifically to get you just high and drunk would probably taste terrible and would just be a gimmick that belongs in craft beer as much as mike's hard lemonade does.
Funny I bought it here in Colorado!
Goes into effect in WA tommorrow not in CO yet.
Just send me all your weed and I will test brew with it. ;-)
passed n Nov 6, it said 30 days...??
The politicians are still trying to figure all the particulars out!
THC is fat soluble, which means it is also soluble in ethanol. Take THC oil or hash, disolve it an ethanol solution such as everclear, and add that tincture to finished beer. Voila, beer that makes you stoned.
me = jealous!
this article says use and cultivation for personal is legal tomorrow...
having a hard time finding anything concrete either way.

Hops are a botanical cousin to cannibis, but I gots to say, at a brewfest near Boston maybe 4-5 years back, a west coast brewer had a hemp-brew that was laced with weed. Can't say I didn't enjoy it.
I believe hops are in the cannabis family.
Hey, i heard that hops are in the same family....
idk if anyone mention this yet but did you guys know that hops and weed are related?
Port did an IPA that had a strong weed aroma, called homegrown.
I've also had home brew with weed in it, it was horrible. The person brewing was not good at it, so don't blame the plant.
have you ever had a beer made with weed?????
This is definitely one for the home brewers... jRocco nailed it. It has happened and it will happen and if you can get your hands on some or brew some then pop on Dark Side of the Moon and crack that sucker open.
I'm just thinking how much that would cost. My last homebrewed ipa used about 6 oz of hops altogether for a 5 gallon batch. A commercially produced weed beer would have to cost an astronomical amount
I do know this brewery that doesn't bottle in Asheville, NC called The Wedge makes a hemp ale.
I bet George Washington'd drink it, man . . .
and you know what, man . . .
Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him and a bottle of this, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.
I had a homebrewed weed braggot some years ago and I can report that it was absolutely delicious.
I don't think the "effect" was very strong but my memory is a little hazy as it was a long time ago...
The fun part is doing a drops test to decide how much is needed per 12 oz bottle.
Federal law doesn't regulate the minimum drinking age. Each state can choose their own drinking age, the federal government just reserves the right to withhold transportation funding from any state with a drinking age under 21.
Shit man, you're still high!
We need anything we can get, to deal with this season!
i've asked about this before on here and both times it got deleted..lol
times have changed
but i saw a book called Marijuana Beer: How to Make Your Own Hi-Brew Beer.
its out of print but you can find it on line for like 100 bucks
Man I could only imagine the price of a 6 pack made with kind bud.
But it is alcohol-soluble
Weed really doesn't taste very good in anything. Smoke weed, drink beer.
Couldn't you make a very big beer, say 18% - 29% ABV with bud by freezing out the water like HoTD's Dave? Throw it in a barrel and let it age for awhile? Choices would be endless. Fact of the matter is that people will start experimenting more and more with this bud beer idea and someone's gonna strike gold. I've had greendragon before, made by a friend, and man..that shit really fucks you up. The Bruery would totally do something like this if it we're legal. Hell...brew me an opium beer guys
The real question here is, what beer goes best with weed? (I'm putting Alpha King down as my vote).
Soak the bud in cold water to extract the chlorophyll and other nasty compounds. Don't ask me how I know this.
