HOPCAT GR

HOPCAT WAS ENVISIONED, DESIGNED, STOCKED AND STAFFED WITH ONE MISSION IN MIND: TO BRING YOU GREAT BEER.

WHAT'S A GREAT BEER? 

IT'S A BEER MADE WITH CARE AND PRIDE. MAYBE IT'S A LOCAL BEER - OR ONE FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE. IT'S YOUR USUAL, AS COMFY AS SLIDING INTO YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF JEANS. IT'S A BEER YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW EXISTED. MAYBE IT'S EVEN  A BEER YOU HATE, BUT YOUR BUDDY LOVES - AND THE TWO OF YOU DEBATE OVER IT FOR AN HOUR. HOPEFULLY, ONCE IN A WHILE, IT'S A BEER YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE ORDERED BUT FOR THE FACT THAT YOUR SERVER SUGGESTED IT.

IT'S YOUR NEXT BEER.

WE SPECIALIZE IN MICHIGAN BREWS, BUT ALSO OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF REGIONAL CRAFT BREW, GLOBAL BEER, AND A LARGE BELGIAN SELECTION

IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE MOOD FOR A BEER, YOU CAN GET A GLASS OF WINE OR COCKTAIL FROM OUR FULL BAR.

CHECK OUT OUR STAFF PAGE TO SEE WHO'S BEHIND THE BAR. WE THINK WE HAVE ASSEMBLED THE FRIENDLIEST, MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE, HARDEST WORKING (CAN I GET AN AMEN?) BAR STAFF WE'VE EVER SEEN.

SIGN UP FOR OUR MAILING LIST TO KEEP UP WITH WHAT WE'RE UP TO - AND COME IN FOR A PINT ALREADY!

GOT A PROBLEM? THEN SO DO WE. DROP US A LINE AT INFO@HOPCATGR.COM AND WE'LL GET YOU SORTED.

HOPCAT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE, AND YOU SHOULDN'T, EITHER

HOPCAT IS A BAR. NO ONE UNDER 21 WITHOUT A PARENT. AFTER 8, NO ONE UNDER 21 AT ALL. ALSO - NO, WE DON'T HAVE A KIDS' MENU OR CRAYONS. JUDAS PRIEST, PEOPLE!

LIKE MOST BARS, HOPCAT DOESN'T TAKE RESERVATIONS (NOT IN A HOUSE, NOT WITH A MOUSE - WE REALLY, REALLY DON'T!), THOUGH WE CAN ACCOMMODATE PARTIES OF 50ISH OR MORE FOR GROUPS. CALL 616 451 HOPS (4677) FOR DETAILS.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE NANNY STATE THE BENEFICIAL NEW SMOKING BAN, YOU CANNOT SMOKE ANYWHERE ON OUR PROPERTY, INCLUDING THE DECK. SORRY.

YOU CAN HOWEVER, BRING YOUR DOG TO JOIN YOU ON THE DECK! FRIENDLY (BUT NOT OVERLY FRIENDLY, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!) LEASHED DOGS (AND CATS, IF YOU'RE GOING TO SPLIT FUR ABOUT IT) ARE WELCOME ON OUR DECK WHENEVER IT'S OPEN. WE DO ASK THAT YOU USE COMMON SENSE;  IF IT'S A HOPPIN' FRIDAY NIGHT AND YOU HAVE A MASTIFF...MAYBE YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE GENERAL HOME. FEEL FREE TO CALL AHEAD IF YOU SUSPECT WE'RE SLAMMED - DOGS AND LEASHES CAN CREATE AN OBSTACLE-COURSE FOR OUR STAFF, AND I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT YOUR BEER SPILLED! 

WE HOPE YOU COME IN AND JOIN US FOR A PINT OR TWO SOON.

HOPCAT HAS ONE MISSION IN MIND: TO BRING YOU GREAT BEER.

HOPCAT WAS ENVISIONED, DESIGNED, STOCKED, AND STAFFED WITH ONE MISSION IN MIND: TO BRING YOU GREAT BEER. WHAT IS GREAT BEER? IT'S A BEER MADE WITH CARE AND PRIDE. IT MIGHT BE A LOCAL BEER OR ONE FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE. IT COULD BE YOUR USUAL PINT, OR A BEER THAT YOU HAD NO IDEA EXISTED. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, IT'S A BEER YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE ORDERED BUT FOR THE FACT THAT YOUR SERVER OR BARTENDER SUGGESTED IT.

ACCOLADES 

SINCE JANUARY 2008 AT OUR GRAND RAPIDS LOCATION, WE'VE JOURNEYED ON AN UNENDING QUEST TO ENSURE THAT OUR BEER SELECTION IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD. WE’RE LISTED AS ONE OF THE TOP 50 BARS IN THE US BY DRAFT MAGAZINE. BUT THAT’S JUST THE START: BEER ADVOCATE MAGAZINE HAS RANKED US AS THE #3 BEER BAR IN THE WORLD, CRAFTBEER.COM HAS RATED US THE #2 BEER BAR IN THE U.S., AND IN 2012 RATEBEER.COM RANKED US AS THE #1 BREWPUB IN THE UNITED STATES. WE’RE HUMBLED BY THE RESPONSE THAT CRAFT BEER LOVERS ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE SHOWN TO OUR PHILOSOPHY, AND ARE TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE LOCATED IN MICHIGAN, WHERE CRAFT BEER IS WAY OF LIFE.

AT OUR EAST LANSING LOCATION, WE’VE EXPANDED ON THAT PHILOSOPHY AND PUSHED THE LIMITS OF BEER BARS: WE HAVE 100 DRAFT BEERS—ALL CRAFT, NO CRAP.

WE SPECIALIZE IN MICHIGAN BREWS BUT ALSO OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF REGIONAL, GLOBAL, AND BELGIAN BEERS. IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE MOOD FOR A BEER, YOU CAN GET A GLASS OF WINE OR A COCKTAIL FROM OUR FULL BAR. 

HOPCAT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE AND YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER.

KIDS, DOGS, AND SMOKING

HOPCAT IS A BAR. IF YOU’RE UNDER 21 YOU CAN COME IN BEFORE 8 PM WITH A PARENT ONLY (NOT JUST A FRIEND WHO’S OVER 21). AFTER 8 PM, WE WILL NOT ADMIT ANYONE UNDER 21 AT ALL, NO EXCEPTIONS.

YOU CAN HOWEVER, BRING YOUR DOG TO JOIN YOU ON OUR PATIO! FRIENDLY (BUT NOT OVERLY FRIENDLY, IF YOU KNOW WHAT WE MEAN!) LEASHED DOGS ARE WELCOME ON OUR DECK WHENEVER IT'S OPEN. WE DO ASK THAT YOU USE COMMON SENSE; IF IT'S A HOPPIN' FRIDAY NIGHT AND YOU HAVE A MASTIFF...MAYBE YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE GENERAL HOME. FEEL FREE TO CALL AHEAD IF YOU SUSPECT WE'RE SLAMMED—DOGS AND LEASHES CAN CREATE AN OBSTACLE-COURSE FOR OUR STAFF, AND I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT YOUR BEER SPILLED!

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CANNOT SMOKE ANYWHERE ON OUR PROPERTY, INCLUDING THE PATIO.

WE HOPE YOU’LL COME IN AND JOIN US FOR A PINT OR TWO SOON.
