Hoppin' Frog Brewery is a small, hands-on brewery in Akron, making very flavorful beers in the most flavorful styles. We brew the highest quality beer with an uncompromising focus on detail, from the ingredient selection to the brewing process.
After nearly 7 years in business, our highly anticipated Tasting Room opened June 21st 2013, offering fun, adventurous dishes that change with the seasons, and a Â vast array of the highest quality beers. Â With an experienced and enthusiastic Â chef in the kitchen, the focus is on freshness and vibrant flavors by using superior-quality meats and cheeses to make only 10 or 12 tasty offerings, Â including appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees. Â And, with 24 taps plus a special Â Rare Beer List at the bar, guests can order 5, 8 or 16-ounce glasses of many Â Hoppin' Frog beers on tap, as well as several very high quality guest beers.
