High Alpha Hop. Nugget is a high alpha variety with high yield originally developed through the USDA program at Oregon State University from a cross made in 1970 and registered much later in 1984. The variety is tolerant to a wide range of soil conditions and thus grows vigorously in all areas. Nugget is also grown in the German Hallertau but shows a bit lower alpha content there.
