Hops Against Hunger, FeelGood Tap

You're thirsty. An unfortunate number of our neighbors are hungry. We can do something about this.

HopCat's six Michigan locations have joined an effort called Hops Against Hunger. This is an initiative from the hunger-relief organization Feeding America, which is working to tackle the country's hunger crisis head-on during September, its official Hunger Action Month.

Hops Against Hunger unites 40 Michigan breweries, restaurants and bars in fund-raising efforts for local food relief. As part of our ongoing participation in the FeelGood Tap program, HopCats throughout the state will donate will donate $1 for every pint sold from a select list of beers to one of Feeding America's member food banks. Help fight hunger while you enjoy a pint? Win-win, right?!

When Hops Against Hunger began last year, a dozen establishments were able to raise more than $20,000. With several times the number of participants this year, we have every reason to believe we'll help raise quite a bit more.

Here are September's FeelGood Tap beers for each of our Michigan locations:

Even More Good Advice From The Inappropriate Cat

Inappropriate Cat

Sit. Stay. And share this f***ing video. Why? Because I'm The Inappropriate Cat and I f***ing said so. Oh, and when I say "share this f***ing video," that means share it with your dog-loving mortal enemies and your dog-loving best friends. When you're done, watch my other videos. They're f***ing awesome. 

Spoiler Alert: Dogs are f***ing dumb and HopCat knows craft beer weirdly well. Me-f***ing-ow.
