Podcast: Small Batch episode about cannabis beverages are the feature topic, with beer tastings from DarkHorse and Pig Minds, plus music of Rival Sons
Another small batch podcast from Home Brew Rock Stars delves into the fast growing industry of cannabis beverages. With cannabis laws becoming more relaxed and more states (Illinois sounds like the next state) passing legislation for recreational cannabis, the time has come. Infusing cannabis in beverages is only the tip of the iceberg regarding possibilities that marijuana can play in our daily lives. In beverages, portions are regulated for safe intake, and standardized for repeat production. The day when beverages such as these become widely distributed around the globe, gives us cause to raise our glasses in celebration. The team reviews 8 THC-infused beverages breaking ground right now.
The crew also talks beer news regarding Boston Brewing Company recently announcing that revenues nearly eclipsed $1 billion in 2018. The nation’s second largest craft beer company — which makes Samuel Adams, Angry Orchard, Twisted Tea, and Truly Hard Seltzer, as well as other products, posted double-digit growth in depletions, shipments and sales last year. Could cannabis beverages be on their near future menu? Weed love to know!
We sample some delicious craft beer from popular vegan brewry Pig Minds - Sweep the Leg IPA, now in the cans, and a unique pale ale from Dark Horse - Scary Jesus Rockstar, acollaboration beer made with Chef Cleetus Friedman of Chicago's Fountainhead featuring aromas of chamomile and earthy fresh apricots that hit your palate and rock your tastebuds finishing dry and hoppy...and let's not to forget Kent's very impressive Brown Ale makes another appearance.
Finally, we sample some rock n roll from Rival Sons.
A hearty SQUEAL to Pig Minds Brewing Co. and Artele & Co. for their awesome support and sponsorship! #drinkitup
