Hoppin’ Frog Brewery is commemorating 10 years in business the best way it knows how: by releasing a special beer.
The new release is named Barrel-Aged In-Ten-Sity, a 12 percent ABV “hoppy American-style barleywine” that has been aged in bourbon barrels for six months before being dry-hopped and bottled. The Akron, Ohio-based brewery was founded by Fred Karn in 2006 and is now distributed to almost 20 states around the country.
“All this hard work pays off by creating a great well-balanced barleywine with tons of character that will stand the test of time,” reads the beer label. “Happy birthday to us, and cheers to you!”
According to a post on Hoppin’ Frog’s website, Barrel-Aged In-Ten-Sity will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and is scheduled to be released at an event at the brewery today at 5pm.
