    Re: Hoppin’ Frog, they make some very good, hearty beers. My step-father brews for them (if you ever buy Hopped Up Goose Juice rye IPA, that’s my step-father’s beer and the frog on the bottle has a mustache designed to look kind of like his) and it really is a small crew that does great, great work. The Turbo Shandy is pretty good stuff. The Scotch Red is very good as well. Seasonally, their pumpkin is good, their Christmas is good, and their stouts–while they knock you on your can–are amazing.
