Hoppin’ Frog Euro Collab #3: Frog Hops From Amager

Frog Hops From Amager is the third in a series of European collaborations with Fred Karm of Hoppin’ Frog Brewery (Akron, OH). While travelling abroad, Karm brewed with (De Molen, Fanø and now Amager.) The previous two offerings have been released at the brewery already.

From the heart of Denmark’s craft beer scene, Amager Brewery in Copenhagen Denmark was the host of a well-planned collaboration brew with Hoppin’Frog we call Frog Hops To Amager. This is a special Chocolate Wheat Imperial Stout designed to satisfy all the senses, with a perfect mix of the best American hopsand European malts. Coming back home and brewing this beer at Hoppin’ Frog, the name naturally becomes Frog Hops From Amager. With the special German chocolate wheat malt and mix of 3 caramel malts, together they create a roast and smooth Chocolate Wheat Imperial Stout with a great American style hop character.

Hoppin’ Frog Natasha Is European Collab #2

Hoppin' Frog Natasha Rocks America

The second beer in a series of collaboration brews by Hoppin’ Frog (Akron, OH) is Natasha Røcks America. Fred Karm (founder of Hoppin’) recently took a beer run through Europe and did a series of Euro collaborations. His first stop was De Molen, where they made USA Meets Europe S.I.P.A., a saison/IPA fusion. Stop #2 finds a collaboration with Fanø Bryghus (Fanø, Denmark).

NATASHA ROCKS AMERICA In a collaboration with Fano Brewery on Fano Island in Denmark, we created an Imperial Stout recipe to satisfy our own deepest desires. Brewing it on this picturesque summertime vacation island is how Natasha started, and of course we couldn’t wait to brew it at Hoppin’ Frog! The result is Natasha Rocks America – a rich, hoppy Imperial Stout with the deep-roasted, smooth flavor of Chocolate Rye malt. And, Natasha is generously dry-hopped with the perfect mix of select American hops, adding a great hop character to this super-tasty Imperial Stout collaboration brew. 

Style: Stout (w/ Rye)

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…
