The Award-Winning Original
Opened in 2008 as a place where our founder, Mark Sellers, could enjoy a wide selection of craft beers from around the world (and some great seasonals brewed in our in-house small-batch brewery). Since then it has been named No. 3 Beer Bar on Planet Earth by Beer Advocate magazine, a Top 5 Great American Beer Bar by CraftBeer.com for three years straight and No. 1 brewpub in the country by RateBeer.com.
Grand Rapids is home to the original HopCat location!
Multiple TVs tuned into the hottest sporting events contribute to the fun sports-bar atmosphere at this downtown Grand Rapids brewpub.
Named America’s Best Brewpub for five years and counting, HopCat opened here in 2008 before expanding throughout the Midwest.
