Telluride Mushroom Festival, The Telluride Institute, and Smugglers Brewery are proud to present the official release of their Myco-Infused Beer, the G. Lucid Nut Brown Ale. This health-stimulating, handcrafted beer infusion is a toasted walnut brown ale, with roasted malted grains, “dry-hopped” with Reishi fruiting bodies, and infused with immune enhancing medicinal mushrooms.

The G. Lucid Nut Brown Ale represents Telluride Mushroom Festival’s second annual partnership with Telluride’s Smuggler’s Brewery and Tradd (rhymes with “Rad”) Cotter’s Mushroom Mountain, based in Liberty, SC. Last year’s myco-infused beer was so popular, it sold out before the festival ended. This year, Smuggler’s brewery is adding the delicious immune boosting beer to the menu year-round. G lucid Nut Brown Ale was made available on tap starting Monday, June 17. Each beer is $5 and contains one supplemental dose of Reishi tincture. A portion of beer sales will be donated to the Telluride Mushroom Festival.

For 32 years, the Telluride Mushroom Festival has offered a forum for intellectual exploration of the role mushrooms play on Earth. Telluride Mushroom Festival has become America’s most respected celebration of all things mycological.
