Province Brands of Canada announces agreement with Brock Street Brewing Company

2018-11-13 07:00:00

Enabling specialty Brock Street-branded beers brewed from cannabis to be sold in both alcohol and legal marijuana markets

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - Province Brands of Canada — the Canadian company developing the world's first beers brewed from the cannabis plant, including nonalcoholic beers which intoxicate using THC and other phytocannabinoids (to be released only when and where the sale of marijuana beverages are permitted by law) and Cambridge Bay Imperial Pilsner , a first-of-its-kind, 7% ABV imperial pilsner brewed from hemp in place of barley (which does not contain marijuana) — announces a co-packing and licensing agreement with Brock Street Brewing Company, an award-winning craft brewery in Whitby, Ontario.

The agreement will allow Brock Street Brewing Company to license Province Brands of Canada's patent-pending technology to launch two new beers under Brock Street Brewing Company. The first will be an alcohol beer brewed from hemp (which contains no marijuana) and the second will be a nonalcoholic beer brewed from cannabis, which intoxicates using THC and other phytocannabinoids. The cannabis-brewed beer will be brewed at Province Brands of Canada's facility only once the manufacture and sale of such products are legalized in Canada.

Over the past two years, Province Brands of Canada has developed a patent-pending process for brewing a premium beer from the cannabis plant. The first step in the brewing process, milling and "mashing" (i.e. saccharifying or extracting fermentable sugars from the cannabis plant) requires specialized equipment which would not be found in a normal brewery. Regardless of whether the starting material is hemp (the parts of the hemp plant used by Province Brands are not a controlled substance in Canada) or marijuana (a controlled substance in Canada, regulated under the Cannabis Act) the process is essentially the same except that when the beer is brewed from cannabis, the alcohol is removed prior to sale.

"We are so excited to partner with Province Brands to perfect innovative craft beers at our new state-of-the-art brewery in downtown Whitby. Over the next year these new beers will be brewed from hemp using Province Brands' unique technology, and we look forward to incorporating craft beers brewed from marijuana into our product lineup once legal," said Mark Woitzik, Co-Founder of Brock Street Brewing Company.
