Welcome to our hop farm - What gives beer it`s real flavor and a beautiful head?
German beer: often imitated, never duplicated!
Come take a trip into the world of beer and hops in Germany`s premiere hop growing region, the Hallertau.
Soak in the summer sun, while standing beneath towering rows of aromatic hops, all privately planted and harvested by the Stiglmaier Family since 1693.
Feel the prickle of twisting vines between your fingers, smell the blossoming hop cones and experience the harvest that help creates one of Germany`s most famous products.
Welcome to our farm and join us on a journey through our Homeland.
This can be expected in a real Hops Tour by Elisabeth:
