A new brew hits Melbourne: The Hempire is here

Project Description

AUG 19, 2017, Michael Harden: The Weekly Times and Domain cover the creation of Doss Blockos Hemp Ale following the law change regarding hemp.

“…In an example of peak Australianness, three blokes who own a brewery have celebrated the occasion by making a hemp-flavoured beer.

So why hemp-flavoured beer? Co-owner of Melbourne’s East 9th Brewing Benjamin Cairns admits there was a ‘‘because we can’’ element to making Doss Blockos Hempire Hemp Ale, but adds it was also because “hemp delivers a taste profile that no one has experienced before”.”
