HVG Cold-Storage

Cold storage of raw hops and hop products is an important element of quality assurance within a brewery as:

The quality of beer is improved and is more consistent due to the use of cold-stored hops and their derived products :

Our HVG Cold Storage Service offers you the opportunity to make your hop logistics more flexible and to benefit from market opportunities through prolonged and careful hop storage. Prejudices against the quality of older crop years are entirely unjustified, provided products are correctly stored, i.e. between approx.  0-5°C. Pellets can thus be kept virtually stable for 4 years without any difficulty, extracts considerably longer. 

Cold storage of your products in our two refrigerated warehouses with space for around 10,000 pallets

We provide the following services:

  1. We stock your hop products:
     -  pellets and extract
     -  products from our works and externally produced products
  2. We take over your inventory management with our warehouse management system
  3. We insure your products
  4. We record the temperature and air humidity of our refrigerated warehouses


How do you define quality?
e.g. in the preservation
- of alpha acid
- of hop aroma
- of beer flavour
