SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale
No cannabidiol ( CBD ), no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), not even hemp. Zero. Zilch. Since terpenes lack psychoactive cannabinoids THC and CBD , they are U.S. government-approved and have the green light to be used in SweetWater’s 420 Strain series.

What’s all this gunk floating in my beer? The flakes or sediment you’re seeing in the beer are a result of polyphenols binding to proteins in the beer. Both polyphenols and proteins are naturally occurring in brewing ingredients and are present in ALL beer.
SweetWater 420 is typical of most American Pale Ales with a bitterness content of 41 bitterness units (IBUs) and a moderate alcohol level of 5.3% abv . The name SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale officially memorializes the date the beer was first brewed April 20, 1997, but there is much conjecture over the 420 name.
So no matter how much CBD is coursing through a person’s veins at the time of test , it will not bring about a failed result.

In hops , the alpha acids that bitter beer are actually terpenoids (compounds that are derived from terpenes) called humulone. According to a Popular Science piece, the tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) in marijuana give the plant its psychoactive qualities.
The strong aroma is distinctively pot- like , while the flavor gives way to fruity and earthy notes, with a clean bitterness in the finish. Right now, 420 Strain G13 is only available on draft at the brewery and a limited number of beer bars around metro Atlanta.
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of juicy American hops. The extensive dry hopping process contributes to its bright and flavorful character. This beer is unfiltered to leave all the natural flavors intact and bottle conditioned to stay super fresh.
