Welcome to Alpine Hops!!
Alpine Hops represents Hop Grower's in Slovenia and Germany to bring some of the best European Hops to North America. We also supply premium American Hops to rest of the world.
We primarily represent Agricultural Association of Petrovče (Kmetijska Zadruga Petrovče, z.o.o.) from beautiful Savinjski Valley of Slovenia and a couple of similar hop-grower's association from Hallertau region of Germany.
Slovenia is Europe's third largest hops producer (and sixth in the world). Most Slovene hops are exported to premium breweries in Belgium and Germany. Agricultural Association of Petrovče is one of the largest producers of hops in Slovenia.
Alpine Hops currently sells five variety of Slovene hops: Super Styrian Aurora , Styrian Golding (Celeia) , Hallertauer Magnum , Styrian Savinjski Golding , and Styrian Golding B (Bobek) . Alpine Hops also sells following German Hops - Mandarin Bavaria, Hallertauer Blanc, Huell Melon, Polaris, Mittelfruher, Hersbrucker, Spalter Select, Hallertauer Traditional, Perle, Saphir, Opal, Tettnanger, Hallertauer Magnum, Hercules, Taurus. Please refer to their individual pages for composition and quality characteristic for each variety of hops. Please note that due to limited supply, not all hops may be available at all times. If you are planning a repeated/regular or a large brewing batch, it is highly recommended that you pre-order your hop supply in advance.
Advantages of working directly with hop-growers:
- Consistent quality year after year (subject to annual weather based variations). In fact, you can visit our farms and check out our hops on vine and even pick farms from which your hops will be delivered (if you have time and interest).
- Guaranteed delivery of your hops year after year – we can get in contract for up to five years for your hops (again with further flexibility of you being able to pick fields from which your hops are delivered). This provides tremendous stability and future visibility to both our farmers and also to you as a brewer.
- Direct convenient delivery at your doorstep (scheduled/multiple delivery if necessary). We handle all the import process and paperwork and delivery logistics (currently we have hops stored at our Oakland Cold storage warehouse).
- Flexibility/visibility for growth/change – based on your future projections and contract we can work with farmers to plant/switch hop varieties based on your future need.
- Pricing – though we understand pricing is not the main factor – we are confident we can provide at least 10-20% better pricing then big distributors.
