It’s no secret that the folks at Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery enjoy their state’s liberal attitudes toward cannabis. Hell, they’ve even promoted the fact that an empty can of Dale’s Pale Ale can be used as a smoking device. But with their latest brew, Oskar Blues’ love of marijuana is more evident than ever.
Named after the slang term for tiny joints, Pinner Throwback IPA is actually Oskar Blues’ lowest ABV offering at 4.9%. So it’s on the weaker side, like a pinner. And once you pop the top, you are greeted with a very familiar aroma that reminds you just how closely related hops and cannabis are. If that’s not enough for you, to really make their point, the cans are stamped with “Can I Be Blunt?” above the logo.
The not-so-subtle brew is already available in Colorado and North Carolina where Oskar Blues breweries are located. All 41 states where Oskar Blues is available will begin selling Pinner beginning March 1. Remember, don’t bogart that can. Chug, chug, pass.
