Leading American craft beer company Boston Beer is moving into the marijuana space with a cannabis-infused drink.

The company announced this week that it is introducing a line of cannabis-infused beverages that will be available throughout Canada in July.

The launch of TeaPot, a line of teas containing five milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, per can, will make Boston Beer one of the first major brewers to offer a drink containing marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient.

TeaPot blends real tea with specific cannabis strains to enhance specific times of the day. The brand’s first release is a Good Day Iced Tea, made with real lemon black tea and infused with Pedro’s Sweet Sativa, a unique cultivar which is grown in Strathroy, Ontario by licensed producer Entourage Health Corp. and sold exclusively in Canada under its retail brand Color Cannabis. Each 12-ounce (355mL) can of TeaPot contains 5mg of THC and is crafted to minimize any cannabis taste or aroma. TeaPot will introduce additional varietals in the coming months.

The company said the infused teas will be the first drink launched by its subsidiary BBCCC.

“Our goal is to be the most innovative consumer-focused beverage company on the planet,” said Dave Burwick, CEO of The Boston Beer Company.

“While beer is our middle name, we’ve also introduced successful hard teas, hard ciders, hard seltzers, and canned cocktails. We’re encouraged by the continued growth of the cannabis beverage category and we believe it’s one of the next innovation frontiers. As we await further progress on U.S. regulations, we’ll continue to develop an exciting product pipeline in the federally regulated market of Canada.”

Boston Beer’s brands include Samuel Adams beer and Truly Hard Seltzers.
