Portland-Based Coalition Brewing and True Terpenes Team Up to Showcase CBD-Infused Terpene Beers
Coalition Brewing of Portland is a brewery that believes in community. Since 2010, the craft brewery has brought the American craft brewing experience to the community. Recently the owners, Kiley Hoyt and Elan Walsky, expanded their community efforts with a festival that shed light on two of the most exciting components of the cannabis industry: terpenes and CBD. Components necessary for the creation of terpene beers infused with CBD.
The Brewing Coalition
One of the objectives of the Coalition was to create a series of beers infused with CBD and terpenes. As Walsky says:
“The aim of the project is to highlight the commonalities that exist, not only between hops and hemp, but also between all these different aromatic compounds and these different agricultural products used in beer and in the cannabis industry. "
True Terpenes prides itself on being a part of their community - not just as residents of Portland - but helping to create the best beers.
Creating a beer with terpenes has been an exciting and interesting challenge for the Coalition. One of the terpene creations currently in production is Sets. The brewery worked consistently to create beer Sets, with some OG Kush for its popularity and the way it corresponded to the aromatic profiles of hops used.
The Two Flowers Beer Festival
To celebrate the upward trend in CBD-infused beers, the Coalition organized the FSC Two Flowers 420 with Growlerwerks. The festival featured a list of all terpene beers infused in the CBD, including Coal Beers such as Hemp Nut Brown, Two Flowers IPA
The Coalition had optimistic hopes for the day, but the turnout stunned them.
“We had a line around the building for about six hours,” Walsky recalls. “It was a really exciting thing. To our knowledge, it was the first festival of its kind. ”
True Terpenes was proud to participate in the festivities with their sensory station. There, guests were able to smell different terpenes and get a feel for an interesting and emerging side of cannabis.
The horizon for the Coalition's brewing
With relatively new terpenes in brewing, Walsky is just starting to see the future of the Coalition and other breweries:
“I think you're going to see a lot of exciting things happen. So stay tuned for more details. "
The Coalition also has a series of beers coming out in the weeks and months ahead. As the Pineapple Upside Down, And the Crime of Passion. Coalition beers can currently be found in the Pacific Northwest through Oregon and in Southwest Washington. Bars and restaurants in the region are concerned, but all the specialized stores, and even the main food stores…
