Hoppin' Frog Brewery in Akron is expanding its taproom hours during the week. The Tasting Room will now be open at 3 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, owner/brewer Fred Karm said today (June 9) in an email.
"This is mainly because we have a large parking lot in the back, and now we have designated the front parking lot as 'Employees Only'," he wrote. "This allows us to eliminate the guests parking in the front lot, which could get in the way of the other businesses, and therefore kept us from opening during business hours. Now with guests not parking in the front lot, we can get the party started earlier every day!"
The Tasting Room is also open from noon to 11 p.m. Saturdays.
