We are happy to announce that BSG, a leading supplier of raw materials for the brewing industry, will be distributing choice hop varieties from our breeding program. This is no April Fools’. Beginning this month, Hopsteiner hop varieties: Bravo™, Calypso™, Lemondrop™, Lotus™, and Sultana™ will be available as part of BSG’s portfolio of malt, hops, yeast, and brewing aids.
As a global grower, processor and trader, Hopsteiner is leading the industry in breeding and developing new hop varieties. Hopsteiner’s integrated breeding program has served as a pipeline for new flavor and aroma hops to excite brewers from around the world. In addition to unlocking novel aromatic compounds, hop breeding is at the forefront of sustainability efforts in the brewing industry: new varieties bred for superior agronomics and disease resistance can yield more hops per acre while requiring less water, pesticides, and fertilizer leading to hop varieties with the lowest carbon footprint on the market.
BSG curates a full range of hops and advanced hop products, sourced from farms and merchants worldwide – all available for purchase on the spot market as well as forward contracting.
“Adding these varieties from Hopsteiner reflects our commitment to a diverse and comprehensive portfolio, as well as our continuing focus on quality in the hop category,” said Wayne Scheck, BSG’s Senior Director of Product Strategy. “Bravo™, Calypso™, Lemondrop™, Lotus™, and Sultana™ are all buzzworthy hops with proven profiles that complement and enhance the other hops and product lines already in our catalog.”
BSG customers will be able to order and contract these Hopsteiner varieties alongside their regularly purchased BSG products beginning this month.
