Hops growing regions in Germany
Hallertau (PGI Hallertau Hops)
The world’s largest continuous hop-growing region is found in Bavaria, benefiting from the support of monastery breweries in earlier centuries. The monks needed high-quality raw materials to be able to produce fine beers.
Elbe-Saale (PGI Elbe-Saale Hops)
The Elbe-Saale growing region lies along the Elbe and Saale rivers in Central Germany and comprises about 30 locations in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia. Hop cultivation in this area has a tradition going back to the 11th century and was of particular importance during the Middle Ages.
Tettnang (PGI Tettnang Hops)
Tettnang is the most southern hop-growing region in Germany. It is located in Baden-Württemberg, north of Lake Constance and near the city of Tettnang. Its history of hop cultivation reaches back to the beginning of the 12th century. However, hop cultivation only gained economic significance in this region from the middle of the 19th century.
Spalt (PDO Spalt Hops)
Family-run agricultural operations have been growing hops in this Southern German region since the eighth century. These hops were awarded their first quality seal in 1538—and have been further refined by hop growers since then. Consequently, the Spalt hop variety has been assigned the PDO quality label since 2012.
