The green bottle just got a whole lot greener

According to BNN Bloomberg, Steam Whistle Brewing is “engaged in active discussions” with several different cannabis producers in order to launch a joint (pun intended) beverage project or to bring other cannabis products into the green-bottle company.

Andy Burgess, the president of the company, is looking into creating cannabis-infused beverages, just like Molson. He even reflected on the possibility of launching a cannabis line under Steam Whistle, as well as opening a cannabis store at Roundhouse Park.

“Our brand and the building, our distribution, and the popularity of our beer is of interest to the cannabis space,” Burgess told BNN Bloomberg. “I do think that cannabis, over the long term, provides an alternative to alcohol that we have to be cognizant about.”
