Lincoln Park Craft District Brewery First in the Duluth Area to Release CBD + THC Non-Alcoholic Flavored Sparkling Water
Our non-alcoholic CBD/THC sparkling waters bring forth an environment of balance and tranquility for your next social adventure. Locally sourced Hemp derived CBD and THC from the North Shore of Minnesota combine with the pristine waters of Lake Superior for a refreshing and effervescent sparkling water experience. Wade in with one can at a time to find your enjoyment level, and as always, paddle responsibly!
CBD+: An easy-going dose of THC with an elevated dose of CBD for a mellow entry point into new waters. Relax in the current with the tropical flavors of Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava.
THC+: A heightened dose of THC with a matching dose of CBD for an elevated uplifting experience. Flavors of Mango and Tangerine provide a tangy citrus burst.
Pepin Young, Bent Paddle Brewing Co.’s Taproom Director says “We are so excited to bring CBD+ and THC+ Sparkling Water to the taproom now that the Minnesota Legislature recently legalized it for patrons over age 21. It is an excellent and tasty non-alcoholic option for folks looking for an alternative to beer in our taproom and in the broader market as well. I personally love hemp-derived products and can’t wait for more folks to try out our locally made version!”
The brewery is proud to be sourcing unique Bent Paddle custom blends of both their Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD locally from the hemp grown at Finnegan’s Farm out of Two Harbors and manufactured into a hemp emulsion perfect for mixing into their flavored sparking water by another Minnesota Company out of the Twin Cities, Superior Molecular.
Former professional hockey player turned hemp farmer, Patrick Finnegan of Finnegan’s Farm, says “We are beyond excited to be partnering with Bent Paddle on their CBD and THC water lines as a fellow local Northern Minnesota company who only releases superior products. We started the farm in 2010 and have been waiting for the local laws to catch up to modern information about hemp as well as vast consumer demand. In that time we have been contemplating collaborations and have hand selected only a few partners with this new law change. Superior Molecular has incredibly high standards of quality control for our product and Bent Paddle’s beverage products are some of the best in the state so we are thrilled about this local collaboration.”
Superior Molecular Founder John Dugas says “We are thrilled to begin working in the hemp derived beverage space again. This time around it’s an extra special opportunity to collaborate with our longtime friends and partner in business Finnegan’s Farm to bring the highest quality input material into the industrial craft beverage market with a reputable manufacturer like Bent Paddle. As we navigate these uncharted waters in a new genre of business for Minnesota we remain committed to providing superior quality that is scientifically driven.”
The brewery is legally allowed to manufacture CBD and THC products since the passing of the June 2, 2022 Omnibus Law in Minnesota. Bent Paddle is happily following all of the rules and regulations associated with CBD in Minnesota including testing each new batch of Sparkling Water they make with an accredited lab. Analysis results for each batch will be posted publicly on our CBD+THC page as well as FAQs and additional notes about their product lines.
“We are proud as heck to be able to offer a non-alcoholic option that we personally love to drink to our line of high-quality Minnesota made craft beverages in the taproom and soon in the greater market. The water tastes delicious and is light, refreshing, and bubbly. We can’t wait to infuse new flavors into new batches as the brands develop over time. We are so grateful to Finnegan’s Farm and Superior Molecular for creating our own unique, custom, proprietary CBD blends exclusively for Bent Paddle. We hope our Paddler patrons try it soon and enjoy it as much as we do” says Laura Mullen, Bent Paddle Brewing Co.’s Co-Founder.
