Hoppin Frog’s Euro Collabs Continue with Frog Hops “To”

Amager Frog Hops To Amager

Fred Karm, founder of Hoppin’ Frog in Akron, Ohio, spent time brewing in Europe.  His trip yielded a few cross the pond collaborations, including Frog’s Hop From Amager, U.S. Meets Europe S.I.P.A., and Natasha Rocks America.  This imperial wheat ale was brewed at Amager Bryghus in Denmark. Imported into the U.S. by Shelton Brothers.

One day in May 2012, Amager Bryghus had a visit from one of America’s most charismatic brewers: Fred Korn from the brewery Hoppin ‘Frog in Akron, Ohio. Fred was on tour in Europe and came by to guest brew with us. The result of this pleasant and rewarding day of great American company, is the bottle you hold. “Frog Hops To Amager is a somewhat rare type, namely an Imperial Wheat Stout brewed with eight different malts, two of which are wheat And then it would not do for us if it was not hopped strongly so we have given the beer a solid game of Tomahawk and Chinook. You will find an intense and aromatic hopping beer, which is perhaps a little softer and not so heavy as other Imperial Stouty Hope you can enjoy the results of this transatlantic cooperation! 

Style: Imperial Wheat Ale
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles
