I gave low selection just because they dont brew a lot of there own beers. This is a great bar.

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...

really crowded but still a pretty cool vibe...a litlle loud. really knowledgeable service and friendly. the door man sas an absolute jerk though...wouldnít let me stand in the HUGE and empty entry area to call a cab even though it was pouring rain outside...he can suck it. food here was decent and the beer selection was really nice.

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.
