Hoppin’ Frog Brewery Wins Silver Award at World Beer Cup
Hoppin’ Frog Brewery claimed a Silver award in the 2022 World Beer Cup, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers.
Awards were given in 103 beer-style categories during the World Beer Cup award ceremony on May 5th, 2022 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minnesota.
Hoppin’ Frog Brewery was awarded a Silver Medal award in the German-Style Eisbock category beer- style category for its Frogichlaus Swiss-Style Celebration Lager. Frogichlaus Celebration Lager is smooth, mellow and delicious. It has a high-grade malty taste and aroma, with a low bitterness and a dark ruby- red color. It is available now at select retailers and our brewery in limited quantities, with a new release scheduled this year for early Fall.
“I am so pleased at the success of our Frogichlaus! It is one step stronger and therefore more flavorful than our Karminator Doppelbock, so this was entered in the World Beer Cup as an Eisbock. At 13.5% to 14.1% alcohol, we call it a Swiss Celebration Lager. And for good reason – now we’re celebrating big time! Winning this silver medal at the WBC less than 1 year after winning the bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival is a real testament to its quality. With layers of flavor that mature with time, Frogichlaus is great when aged for several years, as well as fresh. So I can’t wait for the next batch to be released in the fall, it’s fun to compare a fresh batch with the previous years.”, said Fred Karm, Owner and Brewmaster of Hoppin’ Frog Brewery.
World Beer Cup winners were selected by an international panel of 226 beer judges from 28 countries. Widely regarded as the “Olympics of Beer”, the 2022 World Beer Cup was the largest competition to date with 10,542 entries from 2,493 breweries in 57 countries.
Presented by the Brewers Association, the World Beer Cup has been held biennially since 1996, to celebrate the art and science of brewing by recognizing outstanding achievement. For additional information, visit the world beer cup website.
