There's a $5 entry fee that will be matched by HopCat with all proceeds being donated to Michigan Humane Society. Contestants must sign up in advance, either by email, by phone, or in person by 2:30pm on January 20th. To sign up, contact our General Manager, Erin Lind, at or call 313-769-8828, or sign up in person at the restaurant by asking your server/bartender.

Once the contest begins, you’ll have six minutes to eat as many Crack Fries, by weight, as you can.

If that's not your thing, you can just come and hang out, drink a beer, get some food and enjoy the festivities.

Our Story:

10 years strong! Since opening our original location in Grand Rapids, MI 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, and has rated us among the Top 5 beer bars in the U.S. 2012-2014. We’re humbled by the response that craft beer lovers all over the world have shown to our philosophy, and are truly grateful for the simple fact that we are lucky enough to be anchored in the Midwest, where craft beer is a way of life.
