The idea to aromatize the drink of Ceres arose in 2015 when Consorzio M126, the hemp producers’ association in Tuscany, the beer cooperative La Stafetta and Archi brewery in Viareggio and the master brewer Michele Menchini decided to work together to produce the first beer in Italy made using inflorescence of cannabis in the wort. The result was Geo Hempathy, an Italian Hemp Ale , a brew with a perfect and rigorous style that is also ‘zero kilometers’. It is made following the principles of chemurgy , the branch of chemistry that deals with developing industrial products from organic raw materials and using only renewal energy sources. The project is also designed to add value to natural resources from the area of Volterra, cannabis the first among them, and utilizes power from the geothermal plant of Sasso Pisano.
The return of cannabis production will change the farming sector in Italy and perhaps make it even more profitable, from a legal point of view. This was not out of the blue but rather a return to the past… an example of how traditions die hard.
