About HopCat Madison

Since opening our Grand Rapids location in January 2008, we've been on an unending quest to ensure that our beer selection is the best in the world. We’re listed as one of the Top 50 bars in the US by Draft Magazine. But that’s just the start: Beer Advocate Magazine has ranked us as the #3 Beer Bar in the world, CraftBeer.com has rated us the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and in 2012 and 2013 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States.

If you're not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine, hard cider, mead or a cocktail from our full bar.


11 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Minors are admitted until 9 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays. We ask anyone inside who is under 21 to leave by 10 p.m. HopCat has a zero-tolerance policy for underage drinking.

Please note that you cannot smoke anywhere on our property.


We're pretty biased, but we think HopCat is a pretty awesome place to work. If you're interested in joining the team at one of our locations, visit barflyjobs.com or text "barfly" to 85000.
