As Seen at CBC 2023

Malt. Hops. Hot Wings. Music. We had a blast connecting in Nashville with all our friends across the industry, and we hope you did too. Now that we’re back in the comforting familiarity of our cellars and brewhouses, it’s time to take another run at the fantastic hops, flavorings, and brewing aids we debuted at the show. 

If there’s something you can’t wait to get your hands on, be sure to buzz your rep ASAP! [They don’t wear pagers; this is just a figure of speech.] 

HS Grove™
Available exclusively from BSG, HS Grove is the latest blend added to our Hop Solutions line. A stone-fruit powerhouse with excellent biotransformation qualities, HS Grove was developed for West Coast IPAs, NE IPAs, Double IPAs, American Pale Ales, and other hop-heavy beer styles. Look for huge notes of peach up front, followed by papaya, orange, pine resin, and more.

HVG Amira 
From the HVG Hop Breeding Program, Amira boasts wild and domestic hop genetics from Germany, Russia, the UK, and the US, including Brewers Gold. With a classic herbal aroma and gentle hints of lemon, Amira compares favorably to Perle and Hallertau Tradition. Amira is suitable as a solo hop or as part of a blend in traditional German beer styles such as Pilsner, Vienna, Kolsch, Altbier, Bock and others. 

Enriched Hop Pellets 
Also called “concentrated hop pellets” or “lupulin-enriched hop pellets,” enriched pellets contain a higher concentration of the aromatic oils and bittering resins from whole hop cones. They also reduce the proportion of polyphenols and other vegetative matter. Thanks to their higher concentration, you may be able to reduce your hop charge by 50% compared to T-90 pellets or whole hop cones. They can be used anywhere T-90 pellets would be incorporated, but are ideal for aroma, whirlpool, and dry hop additions.Varieties include Cascade, Cashmere, El Dorado®, and Centennial. 

Fruit Puree 
Made from 100% real fruit and blended to meet consistent standards for brix, pH, and flavor, fruit purees from BSG are perfect for brewers looking to create fruit-forward styles or complement a more subtle fruit profile. Available in Blueberry, Mango, and Crushed Pineapple, our purees can be added during primary or secondary fermentation. 

Kerry ECO Products
Developed as part of Kerry’s ECO brewing range, Biofine™ Eco is a plant derived alternative to traditional clarification aids such as isinglass and silicon dioxide-based products. It’s designed to improve beer clarification by instant flocculation of yeast and trub.  

FermCap™ Eco was also developed as part of Kerry’s ECO brewing range. As a plant-based alternative to traditional silicone-based products, it was developed to increase fermenter capacity by reducing foam height. Additional perks include better foam and enhanced hop utilization.  

Thanks once again for an amazing CBC! We can’t wait to hear how our new product additions are working for you.
