With its history dating back to 1845 in Laupheim, Germany, Hopsteiner continues to be a world leader when it comes to hop-growing, trading, breeding, and processing firms in the world. More locally Hopsteiner has a large footprint of farms and plants in the Yakima Valley area in Central Washington.
As Hopsteiner cultivates over 70 hop varieties it continues to help breed new varieties. The process required to breed new hops can take ten years with a time consuming and labor intensive process. Yesterday the global hop company released data that highlights seven all-new proprietary and experimental hop varieties. These new varieties are now available to brewers in the commercial market.
