Minneapolis — Indeed Brewing Company is canning and distributing Lull, its non-alcoholic CBD Seltzer, across Minnesota and Wisconsin in January 2021. Released as a taproom-exclusive in the Minneapolis and Milwaukee taprooms, Lull has been available on draft since May 2019 and in limited release cans since early this year.
“It took quite a number of months to perfect this recipe,” says R&D Brewer Jon Eager. “I did my homework to find the highest quality CBD, how to source it, and how to produce seltzer in an efficient and cost-effective manner that would work for our brewhouse.” After thorough research, Eager chose Superior Extractions, a licensed processor that happened to be based locally in Minnesota. Infused with full-spectrum CBD, Lull contains both cannabinoids and terpenes; together, these compounds produce a synergistic effect for maximum efficacy.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound that is extracted and processed from flowers of cannabis plants like hemp. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is not psychoactive or intoxicating, and some users experience relaxing or calming effects. Up until 2018, it was illegal to produce hemp in the U.S. for its classification as a controlled substance. The 2018 Farm Bill lifted this ban, which led farmers across the country to begin planting hemp and processing CBD.
“Our patrons were stoked when we put Lull on our tap lines. While beer is at the core of what we do here, we are in the business of offering good, craft experiences to every person who spends their time and money with us. So it was important to us to have a non-alcoholic option that wasn’t apple juice or a can of sparkling water,” says Kelly Moritz, Indeed’s Chief Operating Officer. “Using CBD also struck our interest, as many of our employees have positive personal experiences with it. We’re no stranger to the recreational use of compounds derived from plants, so it was a no-brainer to experiment with CBD when we had the opportunity to do so.”
