Brewing giant Molson Coors is planning to launch a line of marijuana-infused teas, seltzers and other drinks that current beer consumers might want to reach for instead of a cold one while kicking back with friends, company CEO Mark R. Hunter told said on Tuesday.

“We’re driven by being the first choice for consumers and customers, and [cannabis] is a new space that’s opening up,” Hunter said in an interview with Bloomberg. “It’s clear that the occasions that some of these alcohol-free drinks which will have THC and CBD components will be competing in similar occasions to alcohol.”

“Venturing into this in Canada allows us to do it in a very tight geography—we can incubate, we can test, we can learn,” he added. “And really, we had to decide whether we wanted to be a spectator or on the playing field.”

“We decided to get on the playing field.”
