Great bar with great food. The fries really are addictive. Great selection of beers on tap. THE hub of craft beer in East Lansing.

The beer Gods place of choice - or so it seems...very post-modern beer chic with a cool island bar circled in tap handles. Beer selection (especially Michigan) is first rate, food is snarfable, and service fast, friendly, and knowledgeable. It is amazing that such a run down palace as East Lansing got a place as cool as this...awesome.

Newer place in East Lansing and one to which I’ll return. Slightly corporate Yardhouse feel at the bar, but the tap list is solid and the service was excellent. Four bartenders on duty and everyone of them came by to check on me and see if I needed anything. Nice selection of Michigan locals in addition to plenty of other quality brews. Out of town tickers gonna love this place. They offer 8oz half pours and even 3oz flight pours for $1. I got to try many more beers than I expected. Tonight they have 4 Elf on tap which was a nice surprise because I guess people lined up in the cold last week at the brewery to get some. Had a turkey burger and fries -- both were ok. TVs in the bar and dining room if you want to watch the game. Full bar and ciders, too.

Great to see Hopcat bring a 100 tap beer destination to East Lansing. Really nice looking place, two levels. Service was really good, selection was really great. Food was good. I liked crunchy’s but this is the big leagues of beer. All beer lovers need to get this on their to do list. 20 regular beers, always available, 80 beers rotate. Nice. Was here for lunch and did an impromptu Helles tasting, pretty cool. They don’t do flights, will do small tasters for $1, $3 for Belgians, also will do 1/2 pints. One of the top five beer destinations in the state IMO. Saw they are opening a bar in Detroit and hiring Yardhouse execs.

100 beers on tap, but sadly no HopCat beers due to archaic distribution laws. You can’t transport your own beer 70 miles down the road? While the selection was plentiful, there wasn’t that many of the 100 that stood out. Maybe I’m getting too spoiled these days but a lot of mainstays and a handful of one-offs. I liked the interior and the bathroom wallpaper is rather nice… yeah I gotta take another leak honey, lol. Food was the usual HopCat fare, which I like. Service was great but AWOL at times. I prefer the Grand Rapids location, mainly since they have their own beers on tap and I can find free parking and hit a few brewpubs at the same time.
