Smells Like Weed IPA


April 20 is unofficially National Smoke Pot Day, which is an appropriate time to learn about beers with cannabis-themed names. Jesse Hughey of the Dallas Observer offers his favorites, the most blatant of which is Dark Horse Brewing Company’s Smells Like Weed IPA. Because that ale is only served at the brewery, federal and state regulators haven’t gotten the chance to reject the name on a label. However, regulators did force Mt. Shasta Brewing Company to drop “Legal Weed” from its beer (which was brewed in Weed, California; it’s now called Lemurian Lager). They also gave a thumbs-down to Lagunitas Brewing Company’s The Kronik, which was renamed “Censored.”
