Bells Oberon Day Release
Easter Sunday Brunch
Join us this Easter Sunday from 10am-3pm for Brunch Right Meow! Seriously, a White Russian inspired waffle? A Macaroni & Cheese Sandwich? We make food your mom would make, if she loved craft beer, and hopefully she does! If not, no need to worry, we have bloody mary's and a full service bar to serve up all of her favorite drinks! So, forget about that silly bunny with those weird eggs. Our cat is way cooler.
The first Wednesday of every month, we’ll search our cellar and tap one of the rarest beers we have. Every Banger will be tapped at open, and will run until its gone!
“Our Friends over at Kentucky's own Willett Distillery have one kind of barrel: wood. And they put two things in them: Bourbon and Rye. We were fortunate enough to get some of their Rye barrels, and we put our Imperial Stout in them. It's chocolatey, coffee-y, smoky, Rye-y beast of a barrel-aged thing. Word.”
Willettized Coffee Stout (2017) // Rye Whiskey Oak BA American Stout w/ Coffee // 12.6%
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 Humlus (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.

We take pride in our sustainability, initiatives, especially the ones that allow us the opportunity to partner with urban farms, community gardens & groups that are inspiring sustainable growth within their local communities.
We believe that creating productive green spaces within urban environments 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 Royal Oak is partnering Michigan Urban Farming Initiative.
Participating breweries will donate $1 of every pint sold to Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, in which HopCat will match, up to $300.
