Super Dank!

It’s April 20th, and that means it’s time to grab your best bud and blaze a trail to HopCat. In observance of this 4/20 holiday, we celebrate the very distinguished family of Cannabaceae, which consists of two members: Cannabis (hemp/weed) and Humulus (hops) by tapping the headiest and hardcore resinous beers we could find. Some old favorites, some new discoveries, but all 100% Super…Dank!

While supplies last, we will be giving away custom Super Dank themed BIC lighters in store. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for a chance to win a custom Super Dank Zippo lighter.


The following beers may cause feelings of relaxation, the munchies, and slow reaction time.

Earth Day

We take pride in our sustainability, initiatives, especially the ones that allow us the opportunity to partner with urban farms, comunity gardens & groups that are inspiring sustainable growth within their local communities.

We believe that ceating productive green spaces within urban envrironments is one of the most impactful ways to further positive change. This includes cleaning up abandoned & vacant lots, rebuilding healthy soil, harvesting rainwater, supporting wildlife & local pollinators, planting trees or gardens & growing healthy, organic & accessible produce for local communities, often creating jobs & stimulating the local economy.

This Earth Day (4/22) we will be partnering with & raising funds for 15 different non-profit organizations doing just that. HopCat Lincoln is partnering with For Earth Day, HopCat Lincoln is teaming up with Community Crops, a locla NPO that procides education, advocacy, and experiences to grow local food. They started with one community garden in 2003 and have since grown to twelve garden sites, a training farm, a youth garden and cooking education, and a farmer's market stand!

Participating breweries will donate $1 of every pint sold to Community Crops, in which HopCat will match, up to $300.
