The Tinley Beverage Co (CSE: TNY) this morning had a major announcement in that it has partnered with Pabst Labs, for whom it will now manufacture a version of the “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” in a non-alcoholic, cannabis-infused format. Pabst Labs most notably is part of the “Blue Ribbon Family,” from which cannabis-infused variants of their drinks are offered.
The arrangement between Tinley and Pabst will see the popular “Not Your Father’s” beverage produced in a cannabis infused format from Tinley’s Long Beach facility. The alcoholic variant of the product was popularized by Pabst Brewing Company, whom is also known for its flagship PBR beer. Not Your Father’s was notably one of the best selling craft beers across the US in 2015.
Manufactured in partnership with Pabst Labs, the product is set to contain a 10 mg dose of cannabis in each 12 oz bottle, with distribution set to take place across California. The product is said to be the first in a series of partnerships with Pabst, with additional products from the Pabst portfolio said to be planned for launch.
“Tinley’s facility is ideally equipped to produce our glass bottled products, including pasteurization and other options. This, combined with their team’s deep technical manufacturing expertise, will enable us to launch a broad variety of drinks from Pabst Labs.”Chuck Barlick, Pabst Labs Director of Production
The announcement follows the final commissioning of Tinley’s bottling facility in Long Beach, California, which occurred just one fiscal quarter ago after a lengthy buildout process. Additions have already been made to the facility as well, with the latest version of the firms investor deck revealing that a mini line, canning line, and tunnel pressurization have all been added to the facility, enabling the production of dealcoholized wine, beer, and more at the facility as of Q1 2021.
In the time since final commissioning, the company has announced a number of major clients for third-party manufacturing, including Cannabis Quencher, SIP Elixirs, and Calexo Watercolors, while also scaling the manufacturing and distribution of its own products in a major way. Progress has also been made for its sober curious product line, with distribution now being in place in Alberta at Sobeys and Coop locations, as well as within the US at certain Costco and Ralphs/Kroger locations along with marketing arrangements with Todd Chrisley.
Tinley Beverage last traded at $0.365 on the CSE.
