Fantastic neighborhood bar with a terrific beer selection. The place is small, dark, and attracts a good local crowd which gives it a cozy feel. A great place to hang out with some good friends and drink a few. The food is decent but this is not the type of place people generally go to eat. I personally like Loganís better than Hopcat.

20 taps and a ridiculous bottle list. taps are mainly regional beers, but a nice variety. hole in the wall location, but worth finding. Unpretentious.

Probably the best beer selection in grand rapids. About 20 taps, with a couple rotating seasonal and rarities, and a nice bottle selection. Food has improved tremendously with the addition of a full kitchen, and a similar menu to that of itís sister bar Cambridge house, although that oneís beer menu isnít quite as extensive. In regards to silphiumís occasional sweetness in their tap beers, I have noticed that occasionaly as well. probably need to clean the tap lines better. But overall a very good place to get a beer in GR.

Used to frequent this bar when my friend lived up off Innes. Selection was the best in the city, until Hop Cat took over the Siera Room down by the Arena. Creative list of micros and imports, the bottle list doesnít seem like it changes much, but the drafts vary nicely. Food has improved drastically over the years, but seems a bit pricey for sandwiches. Service can be a bit hit or miss, especially when the place gets over crowded, which it tends to on the weekends. Quality jukebox, enough games to entertain, but those can be limited by the crowd. Overall you could do much worse in GR, and Hop Cat is now the beer king.

Nice place, relatively small and kind of in a weird location. There was a decent selection of draft, nothing exotic, and a respectable bottle list with several that were new to me. Great atmosphere with a younger crowd who want to drink good beer and have a good time.

Nice selection of beer, nice to be able to sit outside on the patio and toss a few back.

Smallish bar opened in 2000, looks older on inside. Really funny posters on the walls. Good selection with 20 taps, had lunch which was decent, nice place to stop and have a few. If you like neighborhood bars this is right in your wheelhouse. Staff were friendly and helpful with menu.
