About HopCat Minneapolis

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 until your server or bartender suggested it.

Welcome to HopCat Minneapolis

HopCat's first Minnesota location opened July 29, 2017, as part of Nicollet Mall's ongoing renovation in downtown Minneapolis. There's a Metro Blue and Green Line station right outside our door, and we're near the stadiums as well as plenty of other attractions.


HopCat has racked up countless honors since opening our Grand Rapids, Mich. location in January 2008. We’re listed as one of the Top 50 bars in the US by Draft Magazine. 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, 2013 and 2015 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States.


11 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Friday-Saturday


We're pretty biased, but we think HopCat is a pretty awesome place to work. If you're interested in joining the team at one of our locations, visit barflyjobs.com or text "barfly" to 85000.
