We couldn’t have made it this far without your help. It’s your passion that pushes us forward each and every day. For our 175th anniversary, we’re celebrating you, with stories from our customers, partners, and team members.


Making the world better beyond just brewing

Innovation is an investment. As our pledge to you for 2021, we are applying our expertise and resources in hops to causes that will reshape our industry and the world beyond brewing. Stay tuned for more. Additional information will be made available as results are published.

Hops to help

COVID-19 Research

With the world caught in a global pandemic, we mobilized our resources to find preventative properties using hops for the deadly coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Our partnership with the University Hospital of Tübingen and the University of Hohenheim is aiming to characterize and evaluate drug candidates isolated from hops for potential antiviral activity. Our intention is to find a way to prevent an infection from COVID-19, as well as support an immune system already fighting the virus. Research involving xanthohumol and prenylnaringenin is already showing promising advancements in regards to the activity of an alcoholic hop extract against influenza viruses.

Fighting ALS


Neurodegenerative Disease Research

We’re looking into new ways to help fight ALS. Using our ultrapure xanthohumol and isoxanthohumol hop products as nutraceuticals, we hope to find a treatment for ALS. Hopsteiner, in partnership with Dr. Gregorio Valdez at Brown University, are looking at ways to help treat ALS, Alzheimer’s, and other neurodegenerative conditions.

Keeping Brews Intact


Hop Creep and Biotransformation

With dry-hopping late in the cellaring process gaining popularity among the brewing community, we began investing in research with Dr. Glen Patrick Fox and the UC Davis brewing program to fund and donate hops for their research on hop creep and biotransformation.

175 Years
of Innovation

We’ve come a long way. And we’re nowhere near done yet. From humble beginnings in small-town operations in Germany, to our constant pushes to evolve for tomorrow—explore the past, present, and future of Hopsteiner Hops.

Our story


Simon Heinrich Steiner (1825-1910), together with his father, Heinrich Steiner (1794-1885), established Hopsteiner in 1845, but the Steiner family had been involved in the hop trade long before officially registering.
