HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked, and staffed with one mission in mind: To bring you great beer. What is great beer? It's a beer made with care and pride. It might be a local beer or one from across the globe. It could be your usual pint, or a beer that you had no idea existed. Every once in a while, it's a beer you never would have ordered but for the fact that your server or bartender suggested it.
Since opening our Grand Rapids location 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, CraftBeer.com has rated us the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and in 2012 and 2013 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat - Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States. 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 located in the Midwest, where craft beer is way of life.
HopCat - Louisville
At HopCat Louisville we're creating Kentucky's largest hub for craft beer with 132 craft taps. We'll even be brewing some beers in house in a small-batch brewery downstairs. Our full food menu, full of scratch made takes on pub food we call "food your mom would make if she loved craft beer" will be available every night until close.
We specialize in offering a wide range of regional, global, and Belgian beers. If you're not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine or a cocktail from our full bar. Since this is Kentucky and we like whiskey, we've got a collection of more than 130 varieties of whiskey, with an emphasis on Kentucky bourbon.
Kids and Smoking
HopCat is a beer bar, but we do welcome families and offer a kids menu and changing tables in our restrooms. If you’re under 21 you can come in before 9 p.m. (we ask that people under 21 leave before 10 p.m.). After 9 p.m., we will not admit anyone under 21, including accompanied minors.
Please note that you cannot smoke anywhere on our property, including the patio.
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, stop by or send us your resume and a cover letter with the subject line indicating the location you're interested in working at to email@example.com.
