PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Craft beer maker Redhook Ale Brewery in Washington is embracing the state’s new marijuana laws.
They’re releasing “Joint Effort Hemp Ale” in a partnership with Hilliard’s Beer. It’s described as a session ale, brewed with hemp seeds and dry-hopped with Zeus, Cascade and Summit hops. It has 5.6% alcohol by volume.
“It’s the perfect brew for sitting around with your bud, grabbing some munchies and enjoying a beer,” Redhook’s website touts.
The Woodinville, Wash., beer maker is distributing the beer only within Washington state. Washington voters legalized all forms of marijuana in November 2012.
