Hoppin’ Frog Brewery earns 3 international awards

AKRON, Ohio – Hoppin’ Frog Brewery has garnered a hat trick of awards from the customer-beer-drinker-ratings website ratebeer.com.

The Akron brewery was named one of the world’s 100 best breweries, best tap room and best beer in Ohio for its Barrel Aged T.O.R.I.S. The Tyrant Triple Imperial Stout.

It is the 11th consecutive year the brewery has earned a spot on the consumer-based site’s compilation of best brewers. Jackie O’s in Athens was the only other Ohio brewery on the Best Brewers in the World list.

Hoppin’ Frog’s niche in the craft-brewing industry has been its emphasis on crafting bold ales. Its beers are distributed in 23 states and 38 countries.

Founder Fred Karm said the brewery will celebrate the honors Saturday, Feb. 24, with rare and special beers on tap. Hoppin’ Frog is at 1680 East Waterloo Road, Akron.
