Located in a historic train freight depot, HopCat features a multi-season outdoor patio and a special installation of guitars from Kalamazoo's own Heritage Guitars. We're a short walk from Bell's, Arcadia, and other downtown breweries and beer bars in this great beer city.

HopCat was founded on the principles of bringing local craft beer a bit closer to the communities we love. We’re known for our award-winning Cosmik fries, which are beer battered, sprinkled with our signature cracked black pepper seasoning, and served with a side of warm cheese sauce. From burgers to tacos, our menu offers a range of delicious options.

We live the craft lifestyle - beer, cocktails, and even craft food made from scratch. With a dedication to local breweries, sustainability, and community engagement, HopCat offers craft beer and great food in a vibrant atmosphere for an inclusive, unforgettable experience.

Beer Lover's Old Fashioned

Sweet, smokey, strong! This delectable classic is made with Iron Fish Bourbon Whiskey that has been finished in Imperial Stout Casks, muddled with a raw cane sugar cube, Luxardo Cherry, a shot of New Holland Dragon's Milk, a splash (and we mean a splash) of water, three dashes of Angostura Bitters and an orange rind. Add another orange rind for garnish, and you'll quickly realize that this was JUST what the doctor ordered!
