In all honesty, the best CBD beer should be decided. Since you can easily make any brew a Hemp beer using a product like CBeerD, the possibilities are infinite. However, I’ve found that these 6 beers are some of the best to enjoy with CBD.
If you live in the southeast United States, you’ve probably heard of Thomas Creek. I grew up near this brewery in Greenville, SC and thoroughly enjoy their Trifecta IPA. This full-bodied American IPA is absolutely incredible on it’s own, but adding CBD makes the beer-drinking experience delightful. If you can get your hands on this beer, this hempy beer concoction is an absolute must-try.
I know, Seltzers definitely aren’t beer – but the new Leinenkugel’s Spritzens are an absolute must-have during the summer. Whether you’re at the beach or in your backyard, these light and crisp beverages are easy to crush throughout the entire day. When you add CBD, these changing your Leinenkugel into a Hemp Spritzens take relaxation to a new level.

Have you seen this Portland, Oregon based brewery on Instagram? This famous brewery has incredible can designs – and the taste of their beers are even better. Give their Jammy Pants IPA a try with 100mg of CBD – trust us, you won’t regret it.
This very-publicized, delicious IPA from Sweetwater Brewery is an obvious first choice when people delve into exploring Hemp beer.

This beer is sold nationwide – making it easy to give this Sweetwater/CBeerD combination a try.
This nationally-recognized sour tripel is another beer we recommend to try infused with CBD. While all sours are the ideal partner with Hemp, this one stood out to me because it’s distributed nationally and is high-ABV. This beer is a perfect nightcap – and infusing a healthy dose of CBD makes it into one of the best Hemp beverages you can choose.
Pseudo Sue Pale Ale is one of the top rated brews in the country. It’s crisp, hoppy taste makes for a perfect vehicle for your helping of CBD.
