It was recently announced that the HopCat in Detroit was opening on November 15th. This is exciting for me for a couple of reasons.
First, it’s opening in Midtown on Woodward Avenue. This is an area that’s growing and will be enhanced by both the District Detroit Project and the M-1 Rail Project. HopCat Detroit is coming in at just the right time!
Second, I work a little more than a mile away!!!
As part of their Grand Opening on November 15th, they are trying to break a world record:
Join us on Nov. 15, 2014 for our world record tap takeover in conjunction with Short’s Brewing Co. . Short’s is creating more than 100 different kinds of beer to break its own record set in 2013. We’ll also give the first 200 people in line (ages 21+) free Crack Fries every week for year and everyone will get a free order of Crack Fries all day. That night we’ll host a free concert with the acclaimed Pitch Blak Brass Band in our Upstairs @ HopCat venue.

I hoping to be there on Opening Day… I hope to see you all there too!
I’m a big supporter of giving any craft brewer a boost no matter who they are, but this group is important. More diverse brewers make for more diverse beverages!
