So, what is hopfen?

Hopfen, also known as hops in English, is a crucial ingredient in beer-making, adding a distinctive flavor and aroma to the finished product. The plant itself is a species of flowering vine, and the dried flowers, or cones, of the plant are used in brewing. Hopfen contains compounds called alpha acids, which contribute to the bitterness of beer, as well as essential oils, which impart floral, spicy, or fruity flavors and aromas. Hops are also believed to have preservative properties, helping to extend the shelf life of beer. Beyond brewing, hopfen has been used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory and calming effects.
