Since opening their first location in Grand Rapids, Michigan in January 2008, HopCat has been on an unending quest to ensure that their beer selection is the best in the world. They are 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 them as the #3 Beer Bar in the world, has rated them the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and from 2012-2016 had ranked HopCat – Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States. HopCat specializes in offering a wide range of regional, global, and Belgian beers. If you’re not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine or a cocktail from their full bar.

Port St. Lucie will be HopCat’s 15th location. Including Florida, the locations are spread throughout nine states with a 16th location scheduled to open this summer in St. Louis.

The Grand Opening is scheduled for Saturday, March 31st. We all know craft beer aficionados love lines so to start one of their own HopCat will be giving a card good for a free order of Crack Fries every week for a year to the first 200 guests. Not only that but every guest in attendance during the Grand Opening will receive a free order of Crack Fries. Now, these aren’t just any fries. These fries are beer battered and topped with a black pepper seasoning. They are so good in fact that Food Network Magazine named them in their list of America’s 10 Best French Fries.
