We appreciate your feedback! Let us know how we are doing. Any questions or comments are welcome.

Before emailing us, though, here are some answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ):

Q: Do you take reservations?
A: No, we do not take reservations for any size party. You are welcome to send a member of your party in ahead of time to check in with the host stand then grab a beer while you wait (if there is a wait). That's not a bad deal for the person who has to wait!

A: For any private event requests please email us at!

Q: Do you ever host live music?
A: No.

A: We strive to have all of our beers listed on our tap list on the website.

Q: Are you hiring?
A: We are usually looking for excellent people to join our HopCat family. If you think you've got the chops, please come in and talk to the manager (afternoons between 2 and 5 are often the best time to do so) or email your resume to

A: Yes. We have a selection of gluten-free beers in bottles as well as ciders on tap that are naturally gluten free. We also have wine and cocktails. Our gluten free menu items are limited, however we can adjust many of our regular items to make them without bread or other items containing gluten.
