Ambience is a personal preference- I am not a big fan of the 8 tv screen, screaming light bars...but again- personal preference. Great beer selection, friendly service. Food was average pub food. Fun place to hang out if you want a decent beer and are in the hood anyway.

I was at Climax Brewing on a Friday where I met some great beer people who told me about the cask ale event at UNO on Saturday. While at UNO (strictly by luck) I met a fellow named Luke who just happened to be the owner of Hopscotch. He invited me to his place & I arrived there on Sunday (nice single weekend triple play by the way!). I enjoyed my time there. I had a couple of 4 beer flights from maybe 40 taps or so. I focused mostly on the IPAís, double IPAís, and the Belgiumís. All were good. It looked like theyíd recently had a Weyerbacher night...with a number of their beers on tap. Luke was there to greet me & to steer me from the Scotch onion soup to the black been soup (nice recommendation Luke...thanks!). Nice atmosphere...but obviously a different vibe on a Sunday afternoon than a Fri/Sat night (easy parking though!).

pretty good draft list of about 40. service was good and waiter seemingly knowledgeable. owner present he walked over and was personable he knew what we had ordered. did not have my first choice of brew on the menu. food was quite good with quality ingredients and prices a little higher than one might expect for the area. ambiance was clean and efficient and comfortable perhaps a little sloppy with door wide open to kitchern. owner and server Anthony made good recommendations.

Has a pretty nice draft list as well as a nice selection of scotches. I visited for the first time tonight, but will definitely be back. The service was quite good, and the minimal amount of food we tried was tasty as well.

Definitely worth the visit. Great beer and scotch selection. Food is stupifyingly good, but didnít give it a ten as it seems small right now. Ambiance is really good, but can use a little more decor. The value isnít bad because youíre getting quality food and great beer. Iím going to be a returning customer for sure!
