HopCat | Calhoun Construction


Louisville, Kentucky

HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked, and staffed with one mission in mind: To bring you great beer. What is great beer? It’s a beer made with care and pride. It might be a local beer or one from across the globe. It could be your usual pint, or a beer that you had no idea existed. Every once in a while, it’s a beer you never would have ordered but for the fact that your server or bartender suggested it.

Since opening their first location in January 2008, they have been on an unending quest to ensure that their beer selection is the best in the world. 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, CraftBeer.com has rated them 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.
