NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Hemp beer could be just around the corner in Tennessee.
Hemp oil manufacturers are already extracting oil for the purpose of adding hemp flavor to beer.
Xtracts is the company, and they’ve already collaborated with Little Harper Brewing in Nashville on a product. Little Harpeth Brewery offers a hemp beer on tap, but so far, it's the only brewery in Tennessee to do so.
So what will a potential beer taste like?
Hemp can be broken down into a number of different flavors, a representative from Xtracts said. Beers made with the oil will take on a more earthy style of taste.
Hemp is a cousin of hops and local brewers are excited what the new ingredient could do for beer.
