WASHINGTON–Hopsteiner is excited to be back at the 2017 Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. this week. Hopsteiner was established in 1845 and today reigns as one of the largest hop growing, trading, breeding and processing firms in the world. Hopsteiner will be displaying many of their 80+ innovative, new and experimental hop varieties, along with their extensive line of hop extracts, and lupulin powder at their booth this year (#2809).
Hopsteiner’s hops and brewing experts will be on-hand to speak with brewers starting Tuesday, April 11 through Thursday, April 13. Brewers who stop by the booth can relax at Hopsteiner’s all-new beer tasting lounge and sample four unique beers brewed with Hopsteiner hops and can enter to win free hops by taking a quick beer tasting survey.
“We’re excited to be at CBC again and to bring a truly interactive experience to brewers from around the globe,” said Bill Elkins, Sales for Hopsteiner. “This year we’ve added a new beer tasting lounge to allow our guests to sample beers that highlight some of Hopsteiner’s most flavorful and aromatic hop varieties, as well as an open area for brewers to literally get their hands and noses on our new hop products.”
Brewers can also see what all the buzz about with Hopsteiner’s Lupulin Powder, developed by Hopsteiner in 2006, to provide clients with an innovative new hop product that would contribute to their beer’s desired bitterness, and deliver intense hop aromas and flavors, containing significantly less vegetative material.
Hopsteiner Technical Director, Dr. John Paul Maye will be hosting a CBC Tech Track Session Thurs., April 13 at 1:55 pm titled “Dry Hopping and its Effects on Beer Bitterness, The IBU Test, and Beer Foam.” With 23+ years of experience in the hop industry, Dr. John Paul Maye received a Ph.D. in organic chemistry at Purdue University and started worked as a hop chemist. Dr. Maye has published several papers on hops, received many hop-related patents, and the recipient of ASBC’s Eric Kneen Memorial Award.
