HARD SELTZERS are on the rise, and Houston-based 8th Wonder Brewery has thrown its hat into the ring.
Over the past couple of years, alcoholic seltzers can be seen just about everywhere—Houston native and rapper Travis Scott even has his own hard seltzer. Whether they have found a place in your local grocery store, gas station, or bar, hard seltzers might be the drink of the summer, and 8th Wonder Brewery is now putting its spin on the popular drink, taking a unique approach to the new trend.
8th Wonder Brewery’s twist on the new drink incorporates hemp into its seltzer. The drinks are handcrafted locally and are the first THC and CBD seltzers in the state of Texas, and they are also some of the first of their kind created in the country.
One of the seltzers, Delta-8 Wonder Water, contains Delta-8 THC (which has 0.3 percent or less THC*), while the other, CBD Wonder Water only contains CBD. Both seltzers are bright, refreshing, and have hints of lime citrus while also being non-alcoholic and zero-calorie.
“We’re brewers and distillers, and we’re also fans of hemp. When hemp became legal, we wanted to find a way to incorporate its natural goodness into what we do,” said Ryan Soroka, 8th Wonder Brewery & Distillery President, and Co-Founder, in a statement.
8th Wonder Brewery is known for its origination brews which are all created based on place, innovation, and tradition. It is also the sixth brewery to open in the city and has played a large role in creating the local craft beer scene.
Both Delta-8 Wonder Water and CBD Wonder Water are available now in 12-ounce 6-packs at the 8th Wonder Brewery taproom, located at 2202 Dallas St.
8th Wonder plans to celebrate their latest venture, on 8/8 Day, (August 8,) and the local brewery will hold an event with live music, specialty beers, the new seltzers, and more. More details will be announced soon.
