Where hops are at home – 175 years of hop cultivation in Tettnang – The finest flavour for an outstanding beer experience.
“Tettnang hops” is a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). Only the best for your beer – our green gold from Tettnang, the seat of the Counts of Montfort. The refined symphony of flavours – supremely delicate and finely spiced – that’s what our premium aroma hops from Tettnang are all about. This small town between the northern shore of Lake Constance and the Allgäu region is Germany’s most southerly hop growing region. The unique landscape not only attracts large numbers of visitors each year – it’s also particularly good for growing all sorts of crops. Cultivated with the traditional Swabian diligence, profound know-how and concern for the environment, and expertly harvested with love and skill: this is our pride, from finest to high alpha, our green gold for the premium beer industry. We are never bitter, but the pinch of bitterness and the particularly fine flavour – that’s what master brewers from around the world value when finishing and refining speciality beers in the premium segment.
The hop growing region in figures: 132 hop farms currently produce between 2000 and 2500 tons of hops a year on an area covering approximately 3500 acres (nearly 2.5% of the total area dedicated to hops worldwide).
