We all have to thank Mark Sellers for building this pub. The first branch of HopCat was established 10 years ago in 2008 with the vision of bringing great beer to its customers.
Currently, HopCat has 17 branches and all present a unique kind of beer. They are listed by Draft Magazine as one of the top 50 bars in America. Moreover, CraftBeer.com has ranked them #3 in the world and #2 in the United States.
You’ll love the classic feel of the pub. It looks like the ones you see in old movies with the wooden counter and high stools.
The food is simply amazing. Each one seems like it was carefully thought of with beer in mind. It doesn’t matter what you order, it will go well with the beer they serve.
It’s hard to recommend a single type of beer. It would be best to try as much beer as you can. If you can’t do that, I’m sure they’ll be happy if you keep coming back for more.
The bartender is really friendly that even if you went alone, you’re sure to have someone to talk to and release that pent-up stress from work or to simply have a casual conversation.
