Oskar Blues Brewery, Veritas Fine Cannabis collaborate on 4/20 IPA
LONGMONT — Oskar Blues Brewery and Denver-based marijuana company Veritas Fine Cannabis, a trade name used by Carrick-Harvest LLC, are partnering on a new cannabis-inspired, 4/20-celebratory IPA offering called Veritasty.
The beer, which does not include psychoactive cannabis chemicals, has a flavor inspired by terpenes found in Veritas’ marijuana strains.
“We took a completely different approach to the hemp beers that have been brewed before,” Juice Drapeau, head Brewer at Oskar Blues Brewery in Lyons, said in a prepared statement. “Instead of using hemp terpenes to cover up the hops that make IPAs great, we paired naturally occurring terpenes in hop strains with naturally occurring terpenes in cannabis strains from Veritas. The result is an IPA that explodes with citrusy bitterness mellowed by rich tropical fruit. It’s undeniably dank.”
Starting on April 20, Veritasty IPA will be available on draft at Oskar Blues Brewery taprooms in Longmont and Brevard, North Carolina, and in canned six-packs at select retailers.
