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.
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 the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and in 2012 and 2013 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States.
At HopCat Madison we offer Wisconsin's largest selection of craft beer on 130 taps. Our Local 30 features only the best examples of Wisconsin-made beers from a variety of breweries representing the most popular styles. Our rotating 100 taps feature beers from Wisconsin and elsewhere around the world.
If you're not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine, hard cider, mead or a cocktail from our full bar.

HopCat welcomes people under age 21 until 9 p.m.. We ask anyone inside who is under 21 to leave by 10 p.m. HopCat has a zero-tolerance policy for underage drinking.
