Days of the Beer, December 12

The beer for today is (Rogue) Issaquah Bullfrog Ale.

On December 12, 1724, Samuel Hood, was born. Samuel was a British Admiral known for his service in the American War of Independence and the French Revolutionary Wars.

In 1792, Lieutenant William Broughton named Mount Hood, in Oregon after Admiral Hood.

Hood died on January 27, 1816.

As to the beer:

Issaquah Brewhouse is located in Issaquah, Washington. They were acquired by Rogue in 2000. Bullfrog is the Issaquah flagship beer.

An American style wheat beer and an Issaquah Brewhouse original. Light in color and body and served with a lemon, Bullfrog ale is crisp, refreshing and goes down easy. Take a flying leap!
Bullfrog is made with Saaz, Horizon and Hood hops.

So, for Admiral Hood, have a beer with hops that ultimately, is named after him.
