FeelGood Tap Feature (May)


One of HopCat's favorite partnerships is FeelGood Tap, in which Michigan breweries donate proceeds from a selected beer to be donated to a Michigan nonprofit, rotating monthly.

This month we are featuring:

  • Boulevard Brewing Company (Kansas City, MO) - Ginger Lemon Radler // 4.1% ABV // Pint // $7

glr

$1 for every pint of beer purchased will be directed to the Flint Water Fund, an initiative run by United Way. 100% of every dollar contributed will be used to purchase truckloads of bottled water to be distributed at food banks in the area, since the state of Michigan recently ended its program to distribute bottles of water to Flint residents.

Bangerz Only! (June)

 

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real!

On the first Tuesday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find.

We like to call them Bangerz! 

This month’s Banger is:

Weyerbacher Brewing Company {Easton, PA}

Weyerbacher 22 (Anniversary) // Ale brewed w/ vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg & orange peel // 11.1% ABV // Snifter

"'Let’s get some French toast!' This big brew is rich & malt-forward with a complex backbone of specialty malts, spices and orange peel. Sweet, bready, caramel flavors should prevail along with hints of smoke, spice and citrus. Liquid version of a classic breakfast…"

Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when its gone its gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

Bangerz Only! (July)

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Tuesday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz!

This month’s Banger is: Evil Twin Brewing {Stratford, CT} - Imperial Biscotti Hazelnut Chili Break // Imperial Stout w/ Coffee, Chili, Hazelnut & Vanilla // 11.5% ABV// Snifter

“Italy has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ – fab food culture, highly decadent history of art & cool countryside. Some might argue the people are loud and flamboyant, they steal our women, the soccer players melodramatically flop on the pitch. Listen – that’s all part of the secret Italian ingredient – keep it cool, confident, arrogant & flamboyant. Forza Italia.”

Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it's gone, it's gone. We will have no regrets. Will you? 

July 6, 2018 to July 7, 2018 - 11:00 am
