Hoppin’ Frog Brewery – Gangster Frog I.P.A.
Being native to the northeast Ohio region, I have come to realize that there is not always a lot to do. Because of that, I find it almost shameful to say that I have never been to Hoppin’ Frog Brewery. I love going to small breweries (of course drinking the beer is a perk), but I cannot understand how I have passed this place up some many times. Just the other day, all of this was going through my tiny little brain, and then it hit me…..James Taylor concert at Blossom Theater + needing something to eat and drink prior to the concert = Hoppin’ Frog Brewery.
Once upon a time the city of Akron, Oh was a flourishing place full of promises and opportunities. Yes, looking at the grey, desolate, nearly abandoned ghost town that remains today, it is quite hard to believe. However, not so many years ago, Akron was crowned the “Rubber Capitol” of the world. Companies like Good Year and Firestone called this place their home and exported more tires than any other place in the universe, and in turn, provided the city with plentiful employment. But, unfortunately those years have passed, and it seems Akron is more famous for what has left it behind than for what is still there (yeah, that’s a Lebron reference and yeah, I’m still bitter).
