Let me just say I absolutely loved the Hoppin Frog taproom. I stopped in on my way back from Cleveland and while I didn't stay long, I did drink a few beers from their plethora of tapped offerings and picked up my fair share of barrel aged brilliance from Hoppin Frog's finest. I loved hoppin frog before, but now I'm almost certain this is my favorite brewery In the world. I have always been at odds with breweries releasing barrel aged beers 1 time a year. Why? You are brewers... why not brew your most highly rated stouts all year? What happens when big John works 350 days a year and happens to be working double time in which he can't afford to lose the pay to go to some special release party for the release of a Bourbon barrel stout? I'm almost certain the folks in Akron can drive to Hoppin Frog and find a BBA Boris any day of the year in a bottle. Now that's brewing at its finest. Hoppin Frog brewery, it's ownership, brewers, and employees are doing what craft beer is meant to be by brewing their best stuff as often as possible, keeping things small and welcoming anyone who can stop by. Other brewers should take note and beer fans as well, these guys and girls are doing some of the greatest stuff in our business and I personally enjoy every single minute of it. 2 hours from home? I'm already planning my next visit over the next few months. The people there were great as well! LONG LIVE HOPPIN FROG!! AND IT'S BREWING GENIUS.

Overall good experience, staff was eager to help, with exception of the bar manager, she was rude to most customers it seemed. The food was American Pub Grub but was better than average, and the beer was phenomenal. I managed to go through there entire draft list in one sitting (half pints) and was impressed by every beer. Gangsta IPA is especially underrated to me, it is amazing!! I was checking them all in on Untappd and noticed that most of the beer is underrated on the app. This place is worth the trip if you are visiting Cleveland as it is an hour south. I did GLBC and then went here, great trip.

Nice little tap room & friendly staff. Big variety of Hoppin' Frog & guest taps. One of my favorite Ohio breweries. For the beer geeks, I recommend hitting up Hoppin' Frog & Thirsty Dog on a Saturday afternoon. Only 15 minutes apart.

Stop #442 on my world brewery tour.

Standard industrial park tap room setting with world-class brews. Told the friendly and helpful server to bring me a representation of what I should be drinking (not something I normally do). Came back with a Scottish, OFest, Pumpkin, IPA, and Imperial Stout.

They had two infused beers - an IPA in lime peels and a stout in beans. I had the IPA. Also had lots of vintage/pricy bottles on the menu.

A gem in Akron which lives up to the high rating.
