Hemp beer, hemp fashion & sustainability

January 17, 2022

Stone & Wood and Afends have collaborated on a new limited release brew, Crop Circles, an experiment that “chooses to believe in a sustainable future for beer and fashion”.

Together, the brewers and style makers turned to the crops that are making green waves in their industries: regenerative grain for beer and hemp for clothing. 

Crop Circles (the beer) is a mango, macadamia and hemp pale ale that pours like sunset over the fields, hazy and golden orange. Unbelievably tasty and sessionable at 5 per cent Alc/Vol, Crop Circles is perfect for humans who enjoy soaking up the warmer weather.

Fashion label Afends have also created a a hemp clothing collection that will be sold online and instore soon.


Crop Circles pours like sunset over the fields, hazy and golden orange. Boisterous mango aromas and flavours are thanks to generous additions of mango puree, Mosaic and Citra hops, which are all brought back to earth by the creamy and nutty characteristics of hemp and macadamias. 

Crop Circles – The Stats

  • 5% ABV 
  • Mosaic and Citra Hops

From Monday 24 January, Crop Circles will be sold in packs of two 500ml cans on Stone & Wood’s online store, as well in bottle shops and on tap at the Stone & Wood breweries in Byron Bay and Brisbane, albeit in limited volumes.
