Putting weed in beer isn’t a new idea. But when the Heineken brand-name is attached to that beer, it becomes notable and a sign of the times.
Since there’s no THC in Heineken-owned Lagunitas’ Supercritical beer, the beverage won’t get you high. What it will do is give you flavor extracted from beer: the terpenes. While it’s misleading to call a beer a “weed beer” if it doesn’t have any real high effect, it’s still cool to see mega-mainstream brands latching onto weed–even if it’s a transparent marketing play.
And it’s only a matter of federal legalization till brands actually go big with THC in beer.
