Hoppin’ Frog is a small, hands-on brewery making very flavorful beers in the most flavorful beer styles. We brew high quality beers with an uncompromising focus on detail, from the ingredient selection to the brewing process. A specially designed JV Northwest brewing system creates more flavorful beers by allowing more barley to be used in the brewing process. We also use a special bottling machine that keeps the beer fresher, and extends storage times compared to other conventional microbrewery bottling machines. This is very beneficial to retain all the character of these flavorful styles of beer.
Hoppin’ Frog is the concept of owner and established brewmaster Fred Karm, who has designed and produced 21 award winning beers at the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup, the two most prestigious contests in the world. Hoppin’ Frog Brewery was established in 2006, and now distributes beer in 18 states and 12 foreign countries.
Fred is a life-long Akron, Ohio resident, a graduate of the University Of Akron and has been a brewer of specialty beers since 1994.
