Hoppin' Frog Brewery in Akron will release its new Karminator Imperial Doppelbock at the brewery starting at 10 a.m. Friday. (Feb. 22)
The beer is a "rich and malty, German-style lager with a very traditional double-bock flavor," brewer Fred Karm said in an email. "It is brewed with an over-abundance of the absolute highest quality imported Munich malt to create an irresistible toasted barley flavor, with hints of caramel and toffee. It will be brewed just once this year, tasting great right out of the shoot, and gaining depth and smoothness as the months go on."
The cost is $9.99 for a 22-ounce bottle. To celebrate the release, The Orange Food Trük will be at the brewery from noon to 1:30 p.m. The brewery will be open until 5 p.m.
