Pure, Genuine Hopzoil™

Hopzoil™ is a pure essential oil made from fresh hops, steam-distilled right out of the field at harvest time. Using this proprietary process, we are able to capture all of the fresh, intense, essential oils found only in fresh hops.

Hopzoil™ starts with a different raw ingredient.

We start with fresh hops, which are available only at harvest time, right out of the field. Hopzoil™ does not use dried, processed hops. Fresh hops contain all the volatile, most aromatic oils, captured at the peak of freshness, and you can’t get any more fresh than this.

All brewers know that heat volatizes and evaporates these most aromatic of hop oils. That’s why a fresh hop ale tastes so different. You can’t put back into a raw ingredient what has been taken out during drying or processing.
It’s made using our Proprietary Process.

Hopzoil™ takes fresh hops, and steam-distills them, right on the farm. We use pure steam, rather than a CO2 or other solvent-based extract process. This process allows us to capture “freshness” of fresh hops, retaining the intensely complex floral, citrus, tropical fruit and piney aromas, similar to what you would expect in any given variety, but more intense.

The result shouts “Intensely Fresh!”

Our process yields a very different result. Hopzoil™ provides an intense freshness that cannot be replicated with dried processed hops. The result captures “fresh hop” aroma and flavor…that you can use year-round.

The bottom line:

√ Higher yield per batch: reduce or eliminate dry-hopping pellets, and your filtration losses (and labor) will plummet, increasing your yield and profit.
• With Hopzoil™, Same inputs = More beer yielded per batch = More profit per batch.

√ Retain all the bitterness that is stripped during dry-hopping incremental fermentation
• Hop oil, one of the main reasons brewers dry hop, does not affect IBU test results

√ Reduce dry-hopping pellets, reduce your hop bill per batch.
• Think of the process as “liquid dry-hopping”

√ Reduce shipping costs: One liter is enough for approximately 200 barrels

√ Reduce storage space: Does not need to take up freezer storage space

√ Long shelf-life: retains full potency for years, beer retains “fresh” taste and aroma over time.

√ Reduce carbon-footprint: no energy used to dry hops, less to ship, less to store, less to waste.
