I made a trip to Hoppin' Frog to get some BA DORIS. It is located in an industrial park at the production facility. I arrived 5-10 minutes before they opened. I was surprised to see to other cars with people waiting. A line actually formed.

The doors opened up promptly at 5p. I sat down and looked at the draft list and was amazed at the selection. They had about every beer that they made. There were several that I had not even heard of before. They also had some great guest taps, but who needs them when there is such a selection of house beers available. They also had bottled beer for onsite consumption or to go.

I, of course, went straight for the barrel-aged beers. I also happened to be there for "Tower Tuesday." They pick two beers each Tuesday to pour into 100 ounce beer towers over selected coffee beans. On the day that I was there the poured Cleveland Crusher over banana nut coffee beans, and Frosted Frog over southern pecan coffee beans. Both were fantastic.

The beers were available in 5, 8, and 16 ounce pours. I liked the fact that I could try small amounts of higher ABV beer and not get rocked. Their beers are not the cheapest. That is the reason I have limited experience with their beer given the widespread availability. An eight ounce pour of BA DORIS was $6.99. Although I was there for happy hour, and it was $.50 cheaper ($1 off 16oz pours).

They had a limited menu, but they were appealing dishes. I had a fall platter that consisted of pork tenderloins with apple chutney and mashed sweet potatoes. It was delicious. Frosted Frog was the recommended beer pairing. I had the pecan coffee infused version with my meal, and it was one of the best meals and pairings I have had in a long while.

Basically, what I am saying is that I loved my experience at the taproom. The food was great. The beer was amazing. There were no televisions which encouraged conversation which was easy to do because the place got packed quickly. The bartenders were friendly and attentive. The prices on the beer are a little high. The food prices were fine. I cannot wait to go back.

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.

Stopped in this past Tuesday just as the tasting room opened (3pm) as I had about an hour to kill before flying out of Akron. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Really appreciate the 3 pour options they offer....5oz 8oz or 16oz. Also was pleasantly surprised to see most all of their heavy hitting Imp stouts on tap along with a wet hop IPA and two infusions. Will definitely stop in next time I'm in town.
