Weed Beers


#1 Joint Effort Hemp Ale
Joint Effort is a session ale brewed with hemp seeds. It has a dank, resinous aroma balanced by nutty, earthiness from hemp seeds. ABV 5.6%, IBU 25.

#2 Mt. Shasta Brewing Company Weed Ale
There’s no weed in this brews, actually. It is named after the town where the brewery is based — Weed, Calif. Mt. Shasta offers a whole line of pot-themed drinks such as the Shastafarian Porter. Strangely enough, the founder says he’s never tried marijuana.

#3 Lagunitas Waldos’ Special Ale
Every year on 4/20, Lagunitas creates Waldos’ Special Ale. The 2013 batch, which was “super skunky and resinous” is one of the hoppiest creations from the brewery.


SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale
This is SweetWater’s most popular beer. It has won all sorts of awards.

Dark Horse Brewery Smells Like Weed Ale
This was only brewed once and it apparently didn’t smell that much of weed.

Interested in cannabis beer? There are books (out of print though) and plenty of experts on the subject.
