Fred Karm, Owner and Brewer

Hoppin Frog Brewing of Akron, Ohio isn’t the biggest brewery in the northeast part of Ohio, but it’s earned a reputation for being the best. Just this month, they were ranked by RateBeer.com as the 24th best brewery in the world! (See the story at Hopping Frog’s website at: http://www.hoppinfrog.com/news/hoppin-frog-on-list-of-worlds-top-brewers/.)

”I’m just blown away,” Hoppin’ Frog owner and brewer Fred Karm said. ”I just think of myself as making beer for my friends and family. It’s unfathomable.”

Hoppin Frog’s reputation and status is built on big beers like BORIS the Crusher, an astounding Russian Imperial Stout that also comes in a very scarce barrel aged version. But Hoppin Frog has also been quite liberal in their use of hops and coming soon to Indiana is their “triple IPA” called Hop Dam. We’re grateful to Fred for getting us 30 cases of this amazing beer!

From the Hoppin Frog website:

Hop Dam Label

Hop Dam has been a long time in the works, and its design required us to build a large stainless steel hop dam for our kettle, just for this beer! It was worth all the effort, because this beer is extremely hoppy and very satisfying, using 50% more hops than our Mean Manalishi Double IPA, which was voted Best Double IPA In The World by the US Beer Tasting Championships. Hop Dam is 10% alcohol by volume, and really hoppy, with a bitterness level that is very high but refined and therefore refreshing – its like kissing a hop!! Along with all the standard hop additions, it is also mash-hopped, first-kettle-hopped, and dry-hopped!!! Hop Dam is a 100% American-style IPA, dominated by the top-rated, assertive and refined Amarillo hops, along with lots of aroma and flavor from Columbus, and Cascade, and the wonderful Summit hops – the very special dwarf hop plant picked by hand, and sought-after for its great flavor and aroma. These hops work great together, and make Hop Dam TRIPLE IPA our new standard for hoppy beers!! It will be available for only a few months, so get Hop Dam while it lasts!
