Hop products overview

Exclusive BARTH-HAAS hop varieties

Looking for something really special? Then look no further than the BARTH-HAAS GROUP. MONROE and RELAX are two exclusive hop varieties that you will not find anywhere else.

With an alpha value of only 2.5% and an oil content of 0.95 ml/100 g, the Monroe at first seems rather gentle and mild. But when you let this variety loose on a beer, it turns into a knockout in red (aromas).
Relax is a variety that was originally used for tea rather than beer. Relax has a very low alpha acid content and a high oil content. With such a high oil content, a wide diversity of aromas is to be expected.
The International Hop Growers Convention (IHGC) revised the list of all hop varieties and created an internationally valid standard. Find the list here.

Here and now we will reveal the secret about our welcome beverage at Schanzenbräu & Friends:

We hope you enjoyed the champagne-like drink – even if it wasn’t one at all! This is a special creation, where grapes didn’t play any role, but instead sorghum! It doesn’t come from the Champagne region, but from our research brewery in St. Johann and the flavourful (frothy) “crown” was added by the special hopping dosage with Incognito™.

Hop breeding

Hop breeding has been carried out in Europe since the beginning of the 20th century. The initial incentive was the increased occurrence of fungal diseases, which led not only to fears amongst hop growers for their crops but also amongst brewers for their raw material supplies.

Although this is now more than 100 years ago, hop breeding has lost none of its relevance for the present – in fact, quite the contrary. Resistance to diseases and pests is only one goal of hop breeding today. Increasing the yield and brewing quality play an equally important role. In relation to the latter in particular, it is the compounds i.e. the proportion of different hop oils, which are attracting increasing attention. And not just since the advent of Flavour Hops.

In view of these developments, it goes without saying that the BARTH-HAAS GROUP provides active support to hop breeding around the world – whether by sponsoring government breeding facilities or through its own breeding programmes.
