It’s time to double down and really squeeze those hops for all they’re worth, because Double Nugget Nectar is back!

The impetus for this beer was hatched by our Scratch Beer creative team back in 2020 when someone said, “Let’s take Nugget… and double it!” While it wasn’t quite that easy to execute, our brewers took to the challenge.

“My favorite meeting is with our Scratch Beer creative team,” says our brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner. “That’s where we came up with the concept of Double Nugget. Bringing this beer to life proved to be a fun balancing act.”

Built around Simcoe hops, one of Nugget Nectar’s key ingredients, Double Nugget exhibits bold notes of apricot, peach rings and bright citrus. Azacca hops add hints of juicy orchard fruit, while Columbus and Nugget introduce a layer of dank pine.

To balance the assertive hop bill, the beer’s recipe calls for Munich, Pilsner and Vienna malts as well as flaked oats to lend a bready sweetness while contributing a deep amber-orange color. Weighing in at 9.5% ABV, it’ll keep you warm and cozy while we’re stuck in the depths of winter.
