BSG CraftBrewing sources all of its German hops directly from the German growers, through their cooperative marketing organization HVG e.G. In its 60 years history, the HVG has grown to be one of the most important hop suppliers worldwide. Besides marketing a large part of the German hop production the HVG also processes German hops into HVG hop Pellets, HVG hop extract and other hop products.
Our strong relationship with HVG ensures we supply the very best German hops to American Brewers, also in tough times. We believe in the old tradition of selecting all our hops lots personally after harvest in the Hallertau region, where our experts carefully choose the best qualities for you. Along with traditionally used German Hops like Tettnanger and Hallertau Mittelfrüh, we also carry exciting new German special flavor varieties like Huell Melon, Mandarina Bavaria, Polaris and Hallertau Blanc, which deliver a range of unique aroma characteristics and in some cases high alpha concentrations.
Our German hop selection offers a range of the traditional and innovative varieties that can meet your needs.
