About HopCat - Knapp's Corner

We opened September 2018 with the biggest-ever tap takeover of all Grand Rapids-area craft beers, as a tribute to Beer City USA and the growth of craft beer culture in our city. HopCat - Knapp’s Corner is the second location in Grand Rapids, seventh in Michigan and 17th HopCat overall. It’s the third new HopCat to open in 2018, following Port St. Lucie (FL) in March and St. Louis in July.

Old favorites, new ideas 

The Knapp’s Corner menu features all the HopCat staples, such as Killer Mac & Cheese, burgers and, of course, our famous fries.

HopCat – Knapp’s Corner will seat 250 people inside its fully renovated, 6,150 square-foot dining area, plus an additional 70 in an outdoor seating area. The restaurant features an eye-popping bottle-cap mural created by Kyle DeGroff.

Carrying on the good name

The original HopCat opened in January 2008 in the Arena District of downtown Grand Rapids. Since then, it’s earned accolades from publications such as Draft Magazine, Beer Advocate Magazine, RateBeer.com and CraftBeer.com, which regularly rank it among the best beer bars in the world.

HopCat is owned by BarFly Ventures, which also operates three other restaurant/bar concepts in Grand Rapids: Stella’s Lounge, a whiskey and retro arcade bar; Grand Rapids Brewing Company; and The Waldron Public House event space.


We're pretty biased, but we think HopCat is a pretty awesome place to work. If you're interested in joining the team at one of our locations, visit barflyjobs.com or text "barfly" to 85000.
