Stopped in on a Tuesday afternoon. Drove right by the place the first time. It’s in an industrial park type area. The sign doesn’t draw much attention to itself. It is right on the highway, though, so if you know where you’re going, you wouldn’t have trouble getting there. They were bottling the day I got there. All the beer they have for sale is in a cooler right inside the entrance. They have about every beer they make available. The one I didn’t see in the cooler was the one they were bottling that day, and they pulled a couple off the line and gave them to me. Freshest stuff you can get, they said. How often can you say you have a beer with a bottling date of the day you purchase it? The service here was great. Pricing was about what you would pay at a bottle shop. I felt like I was paying a little less, bu upon further inspection, it was about the same. They had t-shirts and hats available as well. Pricing is about what I’ve seen at other breweries for the same thing. When I was talking to the guy that rung me out, he said they were working on adding a taproom to be open some time in the coming year. That will be awesome. I’ll have to come back to check that out.

This is in an industrial strip just outside of Akron. They have a great line up of their regular beers and a nice selection of fancy bottles (with fancy prices) if you want to get into the vintage and BA bottles. The were doing special treatments of some of the beers when I was there. This is a must stop if going to Akron.

Visited on a tower tuesday and the place was rather packed. We got a table out on the back patio. Great service and the food were alright. I liked that Fred where running around spinning plates and serving samples of special brews and talking to the guest. The only things I would like see changed of this place is better glasswear and give guest free wifi and not only one hour free as it is today. Would love to come back again someday and I envy those living close by this place.

Had a blast here on a quite busy Tuesday night. Got seated outdoors on the patio first, but it was really hot out there so we grabbed the chance to move inside when we got it. Good service all the way, and after a while the owner spent quite some time with us when he found out we were Europeans on a beer trip. Poured us a couple of specials too. Lots of good beers at Hoppin’ Frog, almost all north of 7% ABV, and we wanted to try everything possible so the next day was a bit unpleasant. Bottles to go option too. Be sure to stop by if you’re nearby.

I’ve been to Hoppin Frog 3 or 4 times. Always a great time. I see a lot of posts below bellyaching about ambiance, selection, prices, etc. Waaaa.... I base most of my rating on selection, service, and quality of beer. Ambiance is unique which I like. Service for me has always been superior. The selection is much more than most tasting rooms and the guests taps were significant. In addition you can buy copious amounts of bottles to go. Food I had once and the cuban sandwich was good. Overall value is solid. Fred Karm, the owner, is nearly always around greeting guests.

Quiet industrial park (standard craft beer geography) with several entrances - tasting and dining, distribution, brewing, sales, etc. Beer is really good, but pretty pricy. 5oz samples can be as high as $8 each for limited releases. I didn’t get to try the food, but they do have their BORIS BBQ sauce on every table.

The 2nd part of my Akron brewery tour. The tasting room doesn’t have much of an ambiance. I sat at the bar and had a very informative and friendly bartender. Very fast service, although it was crowded. I didn’t try any food, but it is a smaller menu. Like others have said the beer is more expensive here and you can get a 5oz, 8oz, or 16oz pour. I still think for the quality of the beer, the prices aren’t terrible. A nice selection of their own beers on draft and guest beers. You can also get bottles here, some are vintages and very expensive and others are between $5-10. Overall, it was a great experience here and the beers were in great condition.

First time here lots of rare beers available, 2 burbons on tap. I didn’t try the food its all over the place in style I would say that’s their weakest link.

What a bust. Drove from Cleveland to get here, atmosphere was kind of pathetic, beer was ample, but aside from the couple of great beers they make the rest falls right about average, the beer seems pricier than most of the facilities I’ve been too, same for the food. Way overpriced for what you get. Wouldn’t recommend going, there’s entry of other beer out there and a way better value elsewhere.

I was disappointed with this place. I live near by and had been waiting for this to happen for a while. But I was let down. It’s loud (even after they hung acoustic panels), expensive and the food wasn’t great. I’ve been to a few brewery tap rooms and found the beer prices here to be high. Food is expensive and you don’t get much. I’ve been there 3 times and had the same experience every time. It also seems like the taproom beer consumption has affected the amount of beer and styles that are available in retail stores. But I could be mistaken. I’m done with it.
