    Nugget

    BREWING PROFILE

    A bittering workhorse for decades, despite the high alpha game ratcheting up yields and alpha percentage, Nugget continues because of an especially clean, pleasant hop bitterness, and more recently for contributions in later additions.

    Origins

    Nugget

    A USDA high alpha variety, released in 1983, which helped Willamette Valley growers to compete in the alpha market.  As with many hop varieties, Nugget has been found useful for more than bittering applications by the growing craft marketplace, but the exceptionally clean, pleasant hop bitterness is Nugget’s hallmark.
