Description

Nugget is a famous American high alpha variety developed in 1983 at Oregon State University. This hop has become increasingly popular for its spicy, herbal aromas with a pear and peach note.  Lineage includes Brewer’s Gold, Canterbury Golding and Early Green.

Quality

Crosby Hops dry their hops at low temperatures in a five kiln natural gas-powered hop dryer. All hops are dried to target moisture of ~9%, which allows for consistent hop drying season long. The drying process is critical for optimum retention of essential hop oils and aromas, as over drying or over heating the hops can adversely affect the natural hop character. Crosby Hops approach the drying process the same way they do their T-90 pellet production: as a highly honed craft where science and art are perfected to create the ultimate hop product.

Crosby Hops extremely low operating temperatures and processing methods create the highest quality hop pellets that retain their whole hop complexity, boldness and character.
