About the Company

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, has rated us the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and from 2012-2016 has 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 grateful that we are lucky enough to be located in the Midwest, where craft beer is way of life. We don't franchise. Mark is still the majority owner around here and remains involved in every new location opening.
