Full story after the jump.

Minnesota’s Headflyer Brewing in northeast Minneapolis this month started offering hemp-derived, THC-infused beverages on tap, CBS News reports. The offering is newly legal under a state regulation that took effect on July 1.

Hemp-derived THC drinks were previously required to be sold in cans but under the new rules, companies that display the necessary information normally appearing on product labels can offer their drinks on tap.

Headflyer’s taproom manager Dan Schnabel said in the report that the brewery had been anticipating the rule change and moved quickly to adopt the service of on-tap THC drinks.

“Having it on tap gives us so many different options for our consumers to taste it, to try it, to enjoy one while they’re here on site. It’s more approachable because not everybody necessarily wants to come in and purchase an entire can and drink an entire can.” — Schnabel, via CBS News

While adult-use cannabis has been legalized in Minnesota, the state’s cannabis industry is not expected to launch until early next year, at the soonest. In the meantime, the low-dose hemp THC industry legalized by state lawmakers in 2022 has been steadily growing.

Minnesota officials last week announced the state had earned more than $10 million in taxes from the hemp-derived THC market since its launch two years ago.
