A truly classic American Amber Ale. Wonderful balance of malts and hops with a “Extreme Consumability Quotient", “Delicately Quaffable” and “Deliriously Delicious”.
The history of this recipe goes back to the early days of Triple Rock Brewery in Berkeley. Head brewer Sandy Savage brewed a beer called “Tree Frog Ale” at Triple Rock. Sandy did some consulting work at El Dorado Brewing Company in Stockton in the early 90's and created and brewed a beer he called "Some Kind of Frog" while consulting there based loosely off the Tree Frog Ale recipe. After buying the El Dorado Brewing brewpub in 1996, I discovered the recipe while looking thru some old brew logs. I modified the recipe and came up with "Another Kind Of Frog". The beer was a great hit and even earned a 1st Place Gold Medal at the 1999 California State Fair Commercial Craft Beer Competition. Many years later I have resurrected it and collaborated with Cortlandt Toczylowski at EJ Phair Pittsburgh and have now released the latest Phrog incarnation. "Another kind of Phrog... Revisited”. Sandy Savage is still brewing at his North Forks Brewery which is a Brewpub/Wedding Chapel/ Pizzeria/ Beer Shrine in Deming, Washington and keeps the Frog tradition alive with his version called "Son of Frog".
