O'Fallon Hemp Hop Rye....6pk
“That’s right, there’s hemp in this smooth and polished-tasting amber ale. To be specific, we use hemp seed – one of the oldest and healthiest of ingredients – to create a subtle toasted nutty favor that compliments the hops and rye. We use Cara Rye and Malted Rye for a subtle spiciness and rich ruby color and Victory Malt to tie together the flavors with a nuttiness that compliments the hemp seed flavor. German Hallertauer hops add seasoning and we finish with Cascade hops for a crisp citrus aroma and taste. This wide assortment of flavors form a harmony together, creating a uniquely smooth and flavorful everyday beer that isn’t overwhelming.”
According to Evan Benn of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “ The feds make O’Fallon send them two independent lab results every time they bring in a new shipment of hemp seeds, to ensure there is zero THC content in them.” Sounds expensive. Hopefully they don’t have to do that very often.
