Cannabis company buys Aurora brewery known for CBD-infused beer

An Aurora brewery that caused a national buzz with its cannabis-infused beer is pushing deeper into the marijuana industry.

Dad & Dudes Breweria is the only brewery in the country with federal formula approval to brew beer infused with CBD, a non-psychoactive hemp extract. And now it’s been acquired by San Diego-based cannabis company Cannabiniers, according to Dad & Dudes owner Mason Hembree.
