Gatineau's Hydropothecary teams up with Molson Coors

Gatineau’s Hydropothecary is teaming up with Molson Coors to brew cannabis-infused drinks.

Hydropothecary and Molson Coors Brewing Company have announced plans to form a joint venture to develop non-alcohol, cannabis-infused beverages when marijuana becomes legal.

Molson Coors will have a 57% controlling interest in the unnamed joint venture project. The two companies say they will “explore the highly anticipated consumable cannabis market.”

In a statement, Molson Coors President and CEO Frederic Landtmeters said the companies will aim to be a “market leader in offering Canadian consumers new experiences with quality, reliable and consistent non-alcoholic, cannabis-infused beverages.”

The deal is expected to be finalized by the end of September.
