Hoppin’ Frog Brewery in Akron was once again named one of the best brewers in the world. Beacon Journal beer expert Rick Armon reports that RateBeer.com named two Ohio breweries (Jackie O’s in Athens was the other) to its list of “Top 100 Brewers in the World.”

Armon says the rating is considered a “massive honor because RateBeer.com analyzed online reviews of more than 22,500 breweries around the world.” Kudos to owner/brewmaster Fred Karm and the crew. Check out Armon’s beer blog at www.ohio.com/beer.
