We Heard From The Dog Lovers, And It's Time For A Change.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI, April 1st, 2024 - HopCat, the beloved local beer bar known for its innovative craft brews and vibrant atmosphere, is thrilled to announce a side-splitting rebranding in honor of April Fools' Day. Say goodbye to HopCat and hello to HopDog!

"It's time to embrace our inner dog lovers," says Matt Green, Chief Entertainment Officer of HopCat. "After all, who doesn't love a good hot dog with their brew? We wanted to bring some laughter and fun to our loyal patrons, and what better way to do that than with a playful rebranding?"  

As part of the rebranding, HopDog will feature a limited-time menu featuring delicious hot dogs alongside their renowned selection of craft beers. The community can expect to see playful nods to the HopDog transformation throughout HopCat's locations, including rebranded signage, menus, and merchandise. Even Brewce, our beloved mascot, is getting in on the action, albeit reluctantly.

"We're grateful for the support of our incredible team and community as we embark on this hilarious journey together," says Green. "We promise it'll be a day to remember!"

So mark your calendars for April 1st, 2024, and join us at HopDog for an unforgettable celebration of laughter, good beer, and delicious hot dogs. Don't miss out on the chance to snag a loaded HopDog for just $6.99 (available while dogs last)!
