Hoppin’ Frog’s “Froggy Style” Oktoberfest

Hoppin' Frog Oktoberfest

Hoppin’ Frog looks to get into the fest spirit with Oktoberfest Froggy Style Lager. Brewed in the German tradition of fest beers.

Smooth, hearty Oktoberfest lager beers have been made for centuries to welcome the harvest season. In Bavaria, brewers would save their best grain & hops to brew their Oktoberfests for celebrating the coming of Fall and the start of the new harvest. This cherished tradition is captured in Hoppin’ Frog’s rich and hearty amber-colored Oktoberfest lager. Taste the tradition! 

Style: Oktoberfest
Availability: 22 oz bombers
Arrival: 10/5/12

Hoppin’ Frog & De Molen Create European Fusion Beer

Hoppin' Frog U.S. Meets Europe S.I.P.A

Fred Karm of Hoppin’ Frog (Akron, OH) recently spent some time in Europe. Brewers don’t go abroad just to see the sights. They brew.  First stop? Brouwerij De Molen. This is the first of three collaborations he brewed on his trip.  The beer is a fusion of two styles, a saison (of European origin) and a hoppy IPA (America loves the hops).

U.S. MEETS EUROPE S.I.P.A. Collaborating with De Molen Brewery in the “Green Heart” of The Netherlands, we have created a wild and inventive recipe that is a unique blend from the best of both worlds! A super-charged Saison I.P.A. is born, featuring kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and dry-hopping with the finest American hops.

Style: Ummm…
Availability: 22 oz bombers
Arrival: TBA
