HONG KONG – Yardley Brothers have partnered with Open Book Extracts (OBX) Asia to release its first CBD infused beer. Lo/Hi Mango Cheesecake CBD Sour is the first installment in a range of CBD beers planned by Hong Kong’s most creative craft brewery.
In partnering with OBX, Yardley Brothers can utilize OBX ingredients produced from organically grown hemp from family-owned, U.S.-based farms by farmers with generations of experience. The OBX network of hand-selected farmers have pioneered hemp cultivation, production, and agricultural technology with environmentally friendly, Good Agricultural Practices-compliant growing methods.
“I’ve long been a fan of Yardley Brothers’ craft beers and am excited to work with them on their newest creative venture,” said Laurie Goldberg, CEO of OBX Asia.
Lo/Hi Mango Cheesecake CBD Sour is brewed with 66mg of CBD per litre using Hydrobond, OBX’s proprietary Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-free, water-soluble CBD developed in partnership with global ingredient supplier Prinova. Available by the keg, Lo/Hi Mango Cheesecake CBD Sour illuminates the glass with a saffron yellow hue for a juicy, refreshing, and super chilled out low alcohol (0.9% ABV) craft beer reminiscent of a fresh slice of creamy, mango drenched vanilla cheesecake.
Yardley Brothers Craft Brewery Founder Luke Yardley commented on the inspiration for his latest unique brew and the changing landscape of the beer drinking scene:
“Beer consumers are looking for alternatives to standard alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, and CBD is just the beginning. With that in mind, I see the future role of bars as being social pharmacies able to offer an array of options tailored toward the specific needs of the consumer.”
