Would you try a marijuana-infused beer? Lake Park’s newest spot has one


There’s a new pub in Lake Park that made our heads turn this weekend. Because that’s what’ll happen to you when you hear about a marijuana-infused craft beer. 

Brick & Barrel Gastro Pub calls the creation “Devour-Apricot Haze.” It’s a Berliner with cannabis oil. But don’t worry — it’s all flavor. The THC and CBD have been removed from the cannabis oil, according to the bartender.

This was just one of the 10 beers listed on the draft beers menu this past Sunday during brunch. Brick & Barrel opened on Dec. 1, making it one of the newest additions to the Lake Park Arts District.

AJ Brockman, one of the co-founders of the district, is confident that this new bar will attract locals and tourists to the area, as expressed on social media.

The pub is large with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, with one large bar along one of the walls. It serves crafted cocktails, small batch spirits band craft beers. According to their Facebook’s official trailer, the menu features “locally-sourced, farm-to-table, seasonal, chef-driven, from-scratch pub fare.”
