Hoppin’ Frog Brewery Leaps Into Hawaii Distribution

The news of great breweries picking up distribution in Hawaii is on fire. I just received confirmation that Akron, Ohio, based Hoppin’ Frog Brewery will begin distributing to the Aloha state sometime in July. Founded in 2006, Hoppin’ Frog has become a consistent winner of medals at GABF and the World Beer Cup.

Best known for their Oatmeal Imperial Stout, BORIS the Crusher, Hoppin’ Frog also brews a number of IPAs and sought after seasonals, like the Barrel Aged Frog Hallows Double Pumpkin Ale (it’s really, really good.) Distribution to Hawaii will start with only four beers, but looking at their full list of beers gets me hopeful that we’ll eventually be able to get more here. There are lots of barrel aged beers including a Wee Heavy and even a citrus shandy.

Boris the Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout

ABV 9.4%
IBU 60
25.3 ºP

This Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout will crush you like no other! This is the grand-daddy of all stout styles, with an intensely deep roasted and full bodied flavor. A robust hop character adds a refreshing balance.

Hop Heathen Black IPA

ABV 8.8%
IBU 70
20 ºP

An uncivilized amount of American hop spiciness gives this rich and satisfying Imperial Black Ale serious complexity. What you get is the best of both worlds – a gnarly brood of malt and hops. Raise your glass to worship…THE HOP – the spice of beer!

Hoppin to Heaven IPA

ABV 6.8%
IBU 68

Raise your glass to the heavens in a toast to HOPS – the spice of beer! This classic American I.P.A. features the finest American hops to add a spicy, assertive, and citrusy character to its full-bodied, rich malt taste.

Mean Manalishi DIPA

ABV 8.2%
IBU 168

Explore the extremes of hops, and experience all of their bitterness, flavor and aroma with this Double I.P.A. An extreme, super-assertive and satisfying amount of American hop character is balanced with a toasty, caramelized, intense malt presence.
