I visited here over the weekend on 11/23/2013. I was very let down. I really, truly donít understand how this place rates so highly. It was filled to the brim, loud as hell (making it difficult to have even the simplest of conversations), and the tap list really wasnít that impressive. We stayed for one beer and an appetizer. Although the loaded crack fries were excellent, thatís all we tried. The service was ok, but had to flag the waitress down a couple times. The beer prices were very reasonable. I guess I like the uncrowed gems instead...

Great place! Crack fries are a little overrated (sorry!), but food is generally good--interesting choices, but nothing to write home about. GREAT beer selection; Iíve been to several beer bars around the country, and HopCat has the best handle on good selections from various brewers, including some hard to find. Service is good. Bar is cozy, pretty cool--just a bit loud.

After a long drive it was time for a beer. Hopcat was crowded for an ALCS game but even so I was able to get a table. The wait staff was prompt and helpful in picking what to order. The tap list includes a couple of local house beers along with a nice representation of local beers from Michigan. If you are unable to find something appealing you are going out of your way to do so. Parking is plentiful as well and once there you can easily walk to a number of other locations around town. This should definitely be on the agenda.

This is a great place to hang out, drink great beers, and have great pub food. The last time I was there a number of taps, the ones I wanted (!) were out. But still, great place.

Quite close to Founders Brewpub. Very good selection of beers and especially Michigan beers. Decent food and very good beer. I liked this one. Lots of taps.

Probably the best beer bar Iíve been to in America, just down right awesome, staff is super friendly. Just so many beers that you should order when your half way done your last beer. Food was nice and quite cheap. Having a bar this nice makes me want to move to Grand Rapids, just wicked.

A large number of taps plus an outstanding bottle collection. Knowledgeable and efficient servers. Week day specials. More or less proper glassware is used. Very attractive interior is rather noisy despite the high ceilings. Beautiful wood bar houses 6 sets of taps. All of the food that I ordered or saw was nicely presented and appetizing, but didnít venture from standard pub fare. Tap list emphasizes Michigan brews. Beer menu is nicely organized by style.

Visited 06.21.2013 on Beer Trip 2013. The place is off the hook. No wonder it is rated as the #3 Bar IN THE WORLD. great ambiance, service, selection, food, & value. This place has it all. The beer is great and we have a amazing time. I think we will check out Grand Rapids Brewing Co. tonight
