HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked and staffed with one mission in mind: to bring you great beer. What's a great beer? It's a beer made with care and pride. Maybe it's a local beer - or one from across the globe. It's your usual, as comfy as sliding into your favorite pair of jeans. It's a beer you didn't even know existed. It's a beer you hate, but your buddy loves - and the two of you debate over it for an hour. Hopefully, once in a while, it's a beer you never would have ordered but for the fact that your server suggested it. It's your next beer. HopCat. 150 bottles. 49 taps. One mission.

Coit Creative Arts Academy is the elementary art school for the Grand Rapids Public Schools. The original building was built in 1880 and it is the oldest working school in Michigan. In 2002 it became an arts school. As a result families have moved into the neighborhood specifically to send their children to Coit Creative Arts Academy. Due to this the neighborhood is more art savvy than most others. It is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Medical Mile and within walking distance to downtown. With school budgets as they exist being an exhibitor at Coit Creative Arts Academy is a wonderful nod to the dedication artists feel toward arts education.
