  • Agronomy

    Experimental hop seedlings emerge in our greenhouses in preparation of planting baby hop yards this season.
  • Breeding

    Hopsteiner’s breeding program has released exciting, new hop varieties, including Lemondrop and Eureka.
  • Preparation

    Hopsteiner farms and farm managers set the industry standard for agricultural practices and sustainability.
  • Propagation

    Farmers plant hop rhizomes, the heart of the root system which stores and transfers food for the bine.
  • Baby Hops

    New hop growth emerges from the ground in the spring, and bines begin to reach towards the sun.
  • Growing

    Hop bines climb the coir twine in a clockwise-spiral, upwards until they reach the top of the 18’ tall trellis.
  • Flowering

    As the hop bines begin to reach the trellis tops, they generate lateral shoots that produce the hop flowers.
  • Healthy Hops

    During the summer months, hop yards start to top out when all of the laterals fill-in with full growth.
  • Cone Maturation

    A mature female hop cone is ready to harvest when the flower begins to feel dry and papery.
  • Oils and Acids

    Inside the hop cones, your can see yellow lupulin glands packed with the essential hop oils and acids.
  • Harvesting

    Mobile harvesters called “combines” line the hop fields ready to start the annual hop harvest.
  • Sorting

    Hop cones are then separated from leaf and bine in cleaning stations – leaving only raw leaf hop cones.
  • Drying

    Hop cones are laid out on massive-sized hop kilns where they are gently heated until thoroughly dried.
  • Cooling

    Dry hop cones are then piled high on cooling floors which help maintain their color and essential oils.
  • Baling

    The dried and cooled hops are then compressed in 200-pound canvas bales, sealed with a hand-stitch.
  • Hop Selection

    Hop bails are quickly transported to Hopsteiner’s cold storage facilities where they await processing.
  • Shipping/Cold Storage

    Hop bails are quickly shipped to our cold storage facilities to protects their soft alpha and beta resins.
  • Pelletizing

    Hop leaf is ground into powder and forced through a die under extreme pressure to form dense hop pellets.
  • Extract & Downstream

    Hopsteiner provides traditional hop products, as well as the most advanced hop downstream products.
  • Quality Packaging

    Hop pellets are fresh-packed in nitrogen-flushed mylar pouches and heavy-duty crates with data label.
