US Fuggle

BREWING PROFILE

A lovely blend of mixed herbs and flowers with a tinge of spice, this Old English variety got caught up in an identity crisis and when grown in the US is often referred to as the German landrace variety Tettnanger. More on that in the hop stats and origins section under US Tettnanger.

BREWING NOTES BY BEER STYLE

Endless possibilities. Here are a few that are tried and true.

Flavor Tip: Helles / Pils / Kölsch

Believe it or don’t, but this Old English hop is an all-star in Helles/Pils/Kolsch/Pre-Prohibition type lager beers. In fact, this is what led to the identity crisis and sent US Fuggle masquerading as a German. Bottom line is, US Fuggle makes a beautiful lager with its clean and classy mix of herbs, flowers and spice.

Flavor Tip: Pale Ale

There will always be a place for classic English Pale Ales, and US Fuggle will take you there nicely. The floral/herbal combo and mild spice interact well with the robust malt bill and carry through a truly lovely hop character that does just a little bit more than balance the malt.

Flavor Tip: Blonde / Summer Wheat Ale

The same characteristics that make US Fuggle shine in a crisp lager will make your “summer crusher” ales a hit as well. There’s a lot to be said for hops that don’t get in the way of a basic grain profile, but still add the seductive pull of hops in the finish.

Fresh flavor for your brew!

ORIGINS

US Fuggle

An Old English classic, Fuggle has been at home in Oregon’s Willamette Valley since the early 1900’s. The hop developed so well here that “Oregon Fuggles” became synonymous with premium Fuggle hops grown in the USA.  And… the name is almost as fun to say as Fuggle-laced beer is to drink!

Spot Ordering vs Contract

From an agricultural standpoint, forward contracts are critical for stabilizing crops. It takes two to three years for a new hop field to mature and produce consistent quality. For brewers, contracting hops is the best way to secure supply and ensure quality via post-harvest selection. But you’re obligated to the hops, and it’s difficult to predict your future ingredient needs in a changing marketplace.

Each brewery must determine how to manage their future supply risks based on their evolving business. We’re happy to be a resource in this area and answer your questions based on what we see going on in the hop industry. Our customers play a key role in helping us plan with growers to ensure consistent hop quality and supply.

Brewer Spotlight

Darron Welch

“US Fuggle have a distinctive complexity in aroma and flavor that we rely on for creating the signature character for our highest volume seasonal beer, Bad Santa, a Cascadian Dark Ale. To me, the dark malt flavors marry really well with the woodsy, herbaceous character of Fuggle hops,” states Darron Welch, Brewmaster at Pelican Brewing Company
