The Award-Winning Original

Opened in 2008 as a place where our founder, Mark Sellers, could enjoy a wide selection of craft beers from around the world (and some great seasonals brewed in our in-house small-batch brewery). Since then it has been named No. 3 Beer Bar on Planet Earth by Beer Advocate magazine, a Top 5 Great American Beer Bar by CraftBeer.com for three years straight and No. 1 brewpub in the country by RateBeer.com.

Named CraftBeer.com Great American Beer Bar 3 years in a row!

For the third straight year, CraftBeer.com named HopCat Grand Rapids one of the Top 5 Great American Beer Bars. Cheers to our fans for making this possible.
