In 1994 an electrical engineer named Fred Karm started on his quest to brew beer – the absolute highest quality beer – with an uncompromising focus on detail, from the ingredient selection to the brewing process. Fast-forward over 20 years later, and his brewery Hoppin’ Frog located in Akron Ohio shines-on as one of the best breweries in operation today. Every year for an incredible 8 consecutive years running Hoppin’ Frog has been ranked as One Of The Top 100 Brewers In The World by RateBeer.com, since their opening in 2006! Stop-in to the Tasting Room at their brewery for a vast array of Hoppin’ Frog and guest beers in bottles and on the 24-tap system, as well as a tasty food menu of home-cooked dishes all made on site. Most of the dishes are either made with their beer, paired with their beer, or both.
It’s a daily beer fest at Hoppin’ Frog, so get there as often as you can for lunch, dinner or after, and a great selection of their 22-ounce bottles to go. Between the seasonals, specialty, and year-round beers, they have a wide variety with over 24 types of beer being brewed throughout the year. Their brewery has become known for delivering an abundance of flavor, with signature beers like Gangster Frog IPA, Karminator Imperial Dopplebock, and D.O.R.I.S. The Destroyer Double Imperial Stout. And they give the craft beer enthusiasts a lot to taste and enjoy, with seasonal beers like Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale, Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale, and Frosted Frog Christmas Ale. The best seller has always been B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout, an extremely flavorful beer in itself, which won 2 Gold Medals at the Great American Beer Festival! And now there are many different types of BORIS to choose from, including the new BORIS Reserve, and Bourbon Barrel-Aged B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher, which won a prestigious Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup; the “Olympics Of Brewing”.
