Vermont-based Long Trail Brewing Company is partnering with local hemp cultivators Luce Farm on an infused beer using the farm’s CBD-infused honey. The yet-to-be-named small-batch brew is set for a Labor Day weekend release.
Ian Harbage, co-head brewmaster for Long Trail, said that while “there might be a bit of public learning curve” around the reception of the beer, the company anticipates “a lot of people will be as excited” as they are about the brew.
“We were very excited when approached by Luce Farm,” Harbage said in a press release. “We weren’t too concerned about the perception – to us, it sounded like a unique and interesting opportunity. It’s a great local connection and a chance for us to try new ingredients and learn from the process.”
Rebecca Pimentel, Luce Farm co-owner, called the collaboration “very exciting.”
“It’s an honor to be able to partner with our favorite Vermont brands to collaborate on new products and discover how best to introduce people to the benefits of CBD,” she said in a statement.
The offering will only be available during Labor Day weekend at Long Trail’s Bridgewater Corners tasting room. The owners of Luce Farm will also be on hand offering samples of their CBD-infused products.
