At CERIA we are committed to quality in everything we do. That’s why we set sky-high standards for our ingredients, our process and for the experience we deliver. We brew only the highest quality beers – always flavorful, always smooth and drinkable – and infuse them with a micro-dose of only the highest quality cannabis. For a reliable experience that lets you enjoy at your own pace, socially and responsibly.
As part of our commitment to a quality experience we request that you consume responsibly. Don’t drink and drive. It’s not safe, it’s not legal, and it’s definitely not worth it.
We’d love to hear about your quality experiences with CERIA. Hit us back with your thoughts and stories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Brewing Process
We craft our beers using traditional, proven brewing techniques and high-quality malts, hops and spices for optimal flavor. Once we’ve arrived at the perfect liquid, we take the alcohol out and add the cannabis extract in, carefully metering to get an exact amount of THC in every beer and taking samples constantly to ensure the CERIA you are enjoying is an incredible tasting beer delivering an extraordinary experience every time.
Pre-4/20 Concert at the Hangar Attracts Hundreds
ARVADA, Colorado (April 24, 2019) – There were exhibits honoring the Apollo space program, a Huey helicopter from the Vietnam War, a B1 bomber, even a moon rock on display when Arvada-based CERIA Brewing Company, makers of Colorado’s first THC-infused beer, celebrated its success and said thanks to its consumers at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. The free live concert for fans of the craft beer was held on April 18, 2019, just two days before 4/20, the unofficial holiday celebrating marijuana.
Originally introduced at Colorado dispensaries in late December 2018, CERIA (rhymes with “area”) dealcoholized Belgian-style White Ale sold out within its first four hours. It has since become available in 116 dispensaries statewide, with plans to expand to Nevada and California by this fall. “To emphasize our leadership in bringing the magic of cannabis to beer, one of America’s favorite beverages, we came to a former Lowry Air Force Base hangar filled with priceless examples of the country’s leadership in aviation. It was an opportunity to thank our fans for helping make the brand such a great success,” said brewmaster Keith Villa, Ph.D., who, with his wife Jodi, co-founded the brand in January 2018; daughter Catherine is also involved in the company in a sales and marketing position. Villa is the former MillerCoors brewmaster who created Blue Moon, one of the country’s top 20 best-selling beers, according to Beer Marketer’s Insights.

Since its introduction, news about CERIA has gone viral, with major feature stories appearing in mainstream outlets including CBS News, Chicago Sun-Times, Denver Post, Forbes, New York Times, and USA Today, among others.
CERIA’s Grainwave is brewed as a beer with blood orange peel and coriander, then dealcoholized and infused with a microdosed 5 mg. of fast acting THC that leaves no cannabis flavor. Sixty-four calorie CERIA is currently available in limited edition 10 oz. (296 ml) aluminum bottles and four-pack cartons. A 10 mg. THC IPA, 2.5 mg. THC American Light Lager, and other versions are also in the works. THC is the key psychoactive ingredient from cannabis plants that affects how one feels by creating the unique sensation – the “high” – associated with marijuana.

CERIA MAKES COLORADO BEER HISTORY THROUGH DONATION TO PERMANENT COLLECTION OF HISTORY COLORADO CENTER
DE-ALCOHOLIZED WHITE ALE INFUSED WITH THC
New Cannabis Beer Rolls Out Mid-December to Colorado Dispensaries
ARVADA, Colo. (June 12, 2019) – When former Blue Moon Brewing Company brewmaster Keith Villa, Ph.D., retired from Coors after 32 years, he dreamed of making Colorado beer history with the state's first THC-infused craft beer. After a year in development, CERIA Brewing Company's CERIA (rhymes with "area") dealcoholized cannabis beer, a Belgian-style White Ale called Grainwave, sold out within its first four hours. It has since become available in 132 dispensaries statewide, with plans to expand to Nevada and California later this year.
Now Villa's cannabis brew has become a part of the permanent collection of the History Colorado Center, the Denver home of the state history museum. The museum is conducting a contemporary collecting initiative to document and preserve items related to Colorado's historic 2012 decision to legalize the private consumption of marijuana.
Through August 2020 the museum is also featuring Beer Here! Brewing the New West, a comprehensive exhibition tracking Colorado's cultural and economic changes through the evolution of its beer industry.
Recently, Villa, along with his wife, co-founder and CEO Jodi Villa, presented a four-pack of First Release Grainwave to James S. Peterson, Assistant Curator for Artifacts. The presentation included collateral material and imprinted premium items containing the brand's distinctive logo showing a modern interpretation of Ceres, the Roman goddess of the harvest, upon whose head sits a cannabis-leaf and hops crown.
Keith Villa remarked, "History Colorado Center's collecting initiative affirms what I've been thinking since leaving Coors in January 2018 - we really are making history with Grainwave."
As James Peterson donned white archivist gloves to accept the First Release Grainwave four-pack, he said, "This donation could help us tell a more inclusive, contemporary story about Colorado's $3 billion craft brewing industry - as well as its trailblazing cannabis industry. The CERIA four-pack has the potential to be a great addition to our collection."
Later in the year, Dr. Villa will participate in the museum's oral history project focusing on Colorado business leaders.
