We are hop farmers as well, so we understand the process of planting, caring for and harvesting hops. At Colorado Hop Company, we use the latest and greatest hop pelletizing equipment to turn your gorgeous cones into hop pellets for brewers. Not only do we pelletize your crop, but we can package it for you and sell to local breweries. Contact us today to get started on the process.
When local farmers bring us their dried hops, we use a special process technique to ensure the quality and consistency of the product for our brewers. We have invested in state of the art processing equipment to ensure the highest quality in the hops we process. We do not allow our hops to exceed 100F at any point in our processing, which includes drying and pelletizing processes. By keeping the temperature of the hops below 100F, we preserve volatile compounds that are normally destroyed in large scale hop processing. This results in a better quality product and fresh, tasty beer.
We offer small farm hop harvesting to local hop farmers. We can come to your farm to help you harvest your hops. Please contact us for details and pricing.
We also offer hop drying services. Drying hops quickly and thoroughly is an important part of the process, but it can also take up a lot of space. We have several large dryers that we can offer to our customers. Please contact us if this is a service you are interested in.
