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 January 2008, we've journeyed on an unending quest to ensure that our beer selection is the best in the world. We’re 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 us as the #3 Beer Bar in the world, CraftBeer.com has rated us the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and in 2012 RateBeer.com ranked us as the #1 Brewpub in the United States. We’re humbled by the response that craft beer lovers all over the world have shown to our philosophy, and are truly grateful for the simple fact.

He dreamed of a distinguished and spacious home for his family and in the early 1860’s built this home on East Fulton.

The HERO[series] pairs 5 wounded U.S. military veterans & active servicemen/women with established artists/designers. Together the two parties collaborate to share that Hero's story through the medium of art & graphic design. The result of their work produced onto a Made in American t-shirt, ultimately to become a wearable work of art that carries a significant story. This [Fashion Has Heart] project also includes each of the 5 Heroes working with designers from Bates Footwear to custom-design their own military-inspired boot that aids to further tell their story through the medium of fashion. This project fills the void between the military world and the creative community. By bringing the two parties together to utilize the talents of the Artist in order to share the powerful story of the Hero, it serves as a celebration of our freedoms by the those who sacrificed for them & by those who benefit from them. Without their sacrifice, there is no freedom of fashion or art.
