A true hop lover’s hop, Nugget provides ample bitterness to classic American styles. Pale Ales and IPAs get their familiar bite, and stouts and barleywines can balance considerable sweetness against Nugget’s bittering. A lot of imperial styles will also use it for its potency. Our Spice of Life brew leads with hop character backed by a clean malt bill.
Beers brewed with Nugget are characterized by woody, herbal, resiny flavors, but some people also report notes of “sweet candy.” These interesting differences speak to the variety of experience that a beer can lend—we look forward to hearing people’s impressions of this month’s brew on Untappd and Twitter.
