HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked, and staffed with one mission in mind: To bring you great beer. What is a 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 would never have ordered unless your server or bartender suggested it. At HopCat Grand Rapids we specialize in offering a wide range of regional, global, and Belgian beers with 49 taps, a firkin (monthly tappings) and a 250-bottle list that’s one of the best in the country. If beer is not your thing, our outstanding bartenders can craft you any cocktail from a Bloody Mary, to a mimosa, Old Fashioned, margaritas, and more!
Since opening our Grand Rapids location in January 2008, we’ve been 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 among the Top 5 beer bars in the U.S. 2012-2014, and in 2012-2016 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat – Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States.

HopCat Grand Rapids does not accept reservations. If you have a group, we recommend sending a member of your party ahead of time to put in a name. If there’s a wait, grab a beer at the bar and hang out until we have your table ready (not a bad deal, right?). Since you’re reading this far into the website here’s a pro tip: Our regulars know you can download the NoWait app on your phone and, when you’re within a 10-mile radius of HopCat, check the wait and add your name to the waitlist if there’s a wait.
