Bent Paddle Releases CBD+ (Includes THC) Sparkling Water Line

Lincoln Park Craft District Brewery First in the Duluth Area to Release CBD + THC Non-Alcoholic Flavored Sparkling Water

Starting tomorrow in their Lincoln Park Craft District Taproom folks over the age of 21 can purchase 12 oz. cans of Bent Paddle’s signature CBD+ Full Spectrum Sparkling Water which features approx. 25mg of CBD + 2mg THC per serving.  The cans will be available to-go or for opening and enjoying on-site in the taproom for $6 each or $20 for a 4-pack.  The initial flavor for this effervescent CBD+ offering will be Passion Fruit, Orange, Guava (aka Hawaiian P.O.G. Flavor).  

Pepin Young, Bent Paddle Brewing Co.’s Taproom Director says “We are so excited to bring CBD+ 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 CBD products and CBD sparking water and can’t wait for more folks to try out our locally made version!”

In the coming weeks the taproom will also be releasing a Broad Spectrum CBD version which will consist of approx. 20-25mg CBD per serving only and will be a Mango Tangerine Flavor.  “We’re calling that version the ‘Truckers Blend’ because there will be zero THC and that might be preferred for folks in certain industries or those only looking for CBD water without any THC effects” says Bent Paddle Brewing Co. Co-Founder Bryon Tonnis.

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 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.”

Sometime also in the coming weeks the brewery plans to release a Full Spectrum CBD+ Passion Fruit, Orange, Guava Sparkling Water into the broader market including the Twin Cities.  This market blend will be approx. 20-25mg of CBD + 2mg THC per 12 ounce can and will be found at local CBD shops as well as other select retailers.  Future flavors and 12 oz. cans of Broad Spectrum (THC Free) versions will follow into fall of 2022 and beyond.

The brewery is legally allowed to manufacture these CBD lines 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 CBD Sparkling Water they make with an accredited lab.  Analysis results for each batch will be posted publicly on the CBD page of Bent Paddle’s website as well as FAQs and additional notes about their CBD 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 P.O.G. 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.
