The Intersection of Craft Beer and Hemp
The craft beer community continues to evolve and innovate, and a large driver of that change stems from experimentation with ingredients. From esteemed brewing professional Ross Koenigs, comes Brewing with Hemp: The Essential Guide, the latest release from Brewers Publications.
Times Are Changing!
More and more breweries and homebrewers find themselves brewing beer in states where laws may be loosening up. From cannabis in non-alcohol beers to taking advantage of hemp terpenes and flavors in craft beer and homebrew, there is room for creativity within the legal confines of the law.
Expert on Hemp and Beer Guides the Way
“There are many cannabis consumers who also enjoy craft beer, and I’m looking forward to sharing my vision for how hemp can be additive to an already innovative industry,” said Koenigs. “Through Brewing with Hemp: The Essential Guide, I’ll not only take readers through the process and experimentation, but I’ll also share recipes and tinctures and my experience of bringing these beers to market.”
Koenigs has been awarded numerous Great American Beer Festival medals and developed the industry’s leading craft beer of the year not once, not twice, but three times throughout his career as brewing innovations manager at New Belgium Brewing Company. In addition, his leading research and development of using hemp in beer with The Hemperor broke ground as the first legally produced hemp beer in the U.S. Koenigs is currently the founder and owner of Second Dawn Brewing Company in Aurora, Colorado.
