Interesting, not sure how I feel about it though.
Not sure about the beverage, but I feel that Keith Villa is a knob.
Yikes, $9 for 10oz. that contains only 5mg of THC? That's a pricey buzz, if you can even catch one.
Tonight at 10, Blue Moon that is drinkable, and that you'll crave.
Brownies at 11.
Tom, back to you...
I'd have to agree with you on that note.
How about Blue Moon Pie?
so much a terrible idea.
can't you just get high the old fashioned way and then drink a blue moon and catch a better buzz for a lot cheaper. I don't see the appeal but it also wouldn't surprise me if this was a hit.
CERIA's first beer, the Belgian white, will be available in individual bottles (64 calories per bottle) costing about $9; four-packs will cost less than $36.
Hey only $36 bucks a 4 pack, lol.
This entire venture sounds like a money grab to me, if he was brewing great beer and making new stuff cool, hard pass for me.
Aside from the fact that I hate pot with an unabashed passion, this just sounds like a terrible idea. Add in the fact that they're looking at a $9.00 price point, for a 12oz. bottle, and the already terrible idea becomes even worse.
Or get high the ole fashioned way and drink something better than Blue Moon? Maybe a nice danky IPA would be a better pairing? Or a chocolate chip cookie/fudge brownie stout to cover the munchies?
I enjoy cask Bitter with my Pineapple Express, thank you very much.
I suppose I’d try it for shits and giggles. Question is though, as you pointed out, would it be enough THC to give me giggles?
I'm guessing non-tokers/lightweights can probably drink 2, maybe 1 and feel something; but everyone else needs to come with $27 or just kill off the whole 4-pack (and honestly that may not be enough for some). At that point you could've just blazed a whole eighth of dank herb or 1/2 gram of concentrate, got way more zooted, and still have a few bucks to go buy some wheat or other beer if you'd rather have that taste.
Wonder how well it will sell in Colorado.
Dude...loving the lingo bro! Haven’t heard the word zooted in ages. That takes me back.
price wise I do think it's in line with similar strength edibles. I'm not actually a dispensary frequenter but I think the cheap edibles are around 5 to 10 bucks and usually 5 mg. Also in my experience with 2 mg gummies, 4 (8 mg) put me right to sleep and 6 (12 mg) got me right zooted.
So it is still so much a terrible idea, but I don't think it's a terribly bad deal if youre already at the reeferman's house and looking to score
The alcohol vapor being vacuumed off ruins it, if he could’ve left the alcohol in this would be interesting.
5mg thc for $9? Aka half a standard dose of an edible for an insane price for people willing to pay for novelty.
what are edible prices like in indy?
They're not legal here yet. But looked up a random dispensary in Chicago and came up with this. That's a drink with 100mg for $25. Compared to $36 for 20mg? Yeah it's a gimmick.
You think pairing a stout with cannabis is a way to avoid the munchies? Oh sir that's a Harold and Kumar movie waiting to happen.
Harold and Kumar truck chase Toppling Goliath Kentucky Brunch Stout?
Yeah no kidding. Everyone's so gung ho about doing a THC beer, but a) it's totally illegal since the TTB would NEVER allow it and; b) it's just about as easy to get craft beer as it is to swing by the local dispensary afterwards, and drinking a beer while burning a blunt is maxin and relaxin.
If it's shits and giggles you want, smoke a blunt and eat Taco Bell!
I don't mind THC in beer and think it will inevitably happen. With that out of the way the idea of selling $9 10oz beers with 5mg of THC is flat out price gouging.
I dropped by the dispensary this morning, here are some more price comparisons:
fruit gummies - cont.100mg THC - $16
cookies - cont. 100mg THC - $19
16oz. fruity drink - cont. 100mg THC - $22
5 grams 16+% flower - cont. 840mg THC - $20
1 gram concentrate - cont. 672mg THC - $32
5mg? Hell naw!
You could probably brew your own beer and add THC in extract form, and in more than a 5mg dose. LOL.
From the article:
“First Villa must brew and de-alcoholize the beer to its current ABV level of under .5% because if selling a federally illegal pot product poses risks unto itself, selling an alcoholic pot product is a definite no-no.”
Because pot poses more risks than alcohol..
If you buy THC distillate at retail (which my educated guess says this is made with) it can be had for $30/g. In bulk it can be less than half that. So purchased in bulk 1000mg of THC is about $15
The THC adds essentially no value to this beer. THC is cheap. How these guys charge more the Prairie is nuts to me. Such an obvious cash grab.
Once again I don't dislike the idea of THC beer. This THC beer however makes me mad on multiple levels.
It's the equivalent of buying a Porsche Cayenne. Nobody NEEDS an SUV built by Porsche. But if you own a Porsche 911 Carrera you DON'T want a Land Rover. You want a Cayenne!
I stand corrected on pricing, this 'beer' returns to nothing but so much terrible idea
One more bullshit excuse to marijuana-ize something. I miss 90s CO, black market weed, and people not being a bunch of pothead hipster assholes. CO used to have a killer music scene that's been destroyed by every asshole hipster listening to the same bullshit folk music smoking the same weed... shit I'm just rambling now.
It was the weed, wasn't it?
Lemmie guess: he's gonna call it Blue Dream.
No, I don't like that shit any more. Since the weed industry has artificially inflated the cost of living in Denver all the soul is gone, replaced by rich people trying to be cool. One of my favorite local bands broke up over it. It's sad.
Guess I should be glad I moved? MORE douchebags in Denver? I didn't think that was possible.
Or..., now I know this is crazy, but..., instead of this Ceria potion, maybe a drop or two of tincture into your favorite beer?
