Innovation and Education

BarthHaas Grants for research projects

Since 2007 the annually awarded BarthHaas Grants have supported groundbreaking scientific projects at universities and research institutes. Many successful projects attracted wide attention and could then be continued with public funding. 

BarthHaas hopes by means of the grants to arouse enthusiasm for hops, support research concepts and, last but not least, establish and intensify contacts with promising young research scientists.

Innovation and Education

Hop Harvest Guide

The Hop Harvest Guide explains how some of the most important hop varieties used in brewing have changed in flavor and aroma profiles for this hop crop year, compared with the “normal” characteristics you might expect. It helps you to offer your customers the flavors you intended, and to master the infinite complexity of the natural product that is hops.

Innovation and Research

Sniffing Out The Aroma

Our mission is to uncover new ideas and solutions to enrich the range of flavors in your brewing products.

We always start with the fundamental questions of aroma analysis. What triggers flavor perception? What substances are important for the senses? How can you measure hop aromas and how much of the aroma is transferred to the beer? The answers to these questions are incorporated directly into the BarthHaas HOPSESSED® tasting guide, which has created a new industry standard for a sensory language. The intense aromas provided by dry hopping are a further key area of research. Our findings are used to systematically expand the flavor profile of our products.

Optimizing Brewing Efficiency

We want you to have the simplest and most economical brewing processes.

Our primary concern can be described as industrial convenience. Perfect preparation will allow you to save on time-consuming and costly steps downstream, as well as on storage space. We are working on solutions such as a way of shortening or even completely avoiding the storage-intensive cask maturing processes. Our research into extraction and processing methods is creating a longer-lasting aroma yield, helping to significantly reduce loss in your brewing process.
