HopCat in downtown Grand Rapids is rightfully touted as being rated as one of the best beer bars in the world. It is a top-notch venue and serves up a ginormous selection of beers including 49 on tap and 200 selections overall. Add in a stellar historic location and a seriously cool vibe and you have one butt-kicking and seriously cool third place for friends and family to gather.

Beyond those aspects, HopCat has a tremendous menu that is reasonably priced and very tasty. Alison really liked their delicious and meaty fish and chips, while I thoroughly enjoyed their mushroom black bean burrito wrap and a side of cole slaw. Both were yummy and perfect. Would also dare say that HopCat’s french fries are among the best anywhere.


Next time you are downtown Grand Rapids for business or fun, check out HopCat (at 25 Ionia Avenue, SW), but not only for their vast beer selection, good times, historic location, and fun atmosphere. Check it out for the superb selection of great sandwiches and snacks. We’ve been there twice in the past month and plan to return make return visits on a regular basis. HopCat is one cool cat place!

    That is awesome! The wife and I are going to be up in the end of January and I am going to force her to go there. Luckily she’s into historic buildings and craft beers – a rare breed.
