Redhook Brewery has just announced a new beer celebrating the legalization of marijuana in Washington State. The hemp beer brewed in collaboration with Seattle’s Hilliard’s Beer, aptly named “Joint Effort.” Hilliard’s Beer opened in 2011 in the same area where Redhook got their start in 1981.
So… onto this “legal” beer. Joint Effort is a session ale brewed with hemp seeds, and aggressively dry hopped. The says Effort is “the perfect brew for hanging with your buds, grabbing some munchies and enjoying a beer. Look for draft starting in mid-July, and bottles starting in October, 2013. To our knowledge, the tap handle seen above is not a working bong.
Style: (w/ Hemp Seeds)
Hops: Zeus, Cascade, Summit
Availability: Draft (July), Bottles (October)
* Initiative 502, passed by voters in November 2012, legalized possession and use of moderate amounts of marijuana in Washington State.
After last year’s jab/joke (depending how you feel) at craft brewing an home brewing, Buffalo Wild Wings has decided to take a different approach to their fan base and customers. Starting July 15 2013, Redhook Game Changer will be available at all Buffalo Wild Wings locations. This beer was brewed specifically for BWW and is a sessionable 4.6% ABV pale ale designed for all audiences. They’re hoping this brew will be approachable for those not yet into craft and yet appealing to those who already are. With over 925 BWW locations, this is a big move for Redhook.
Style: Pale Ale
Availability: Draft Only
Arrival: July 15, 2013
