The franchise specializes in offering a wide assortment of craft beer on tap. In fact, they  have one of Kentucky’s largest selection – over 100 taps! The many choices include a wide range of regional, Belgian and global craft beers. By the way, craft beers are small batch beers produced by microbreweries that are almost always small independent operations. This is not the beer of large corporations! The bar also has a small menu offering classic favorites like wings and pizza as well as more unusual fare including seared tuna and bruschetta.

Hop Cat was founded in Lansing Michigan in 2008 and now has six locations. The company prides itself on being environmentally conscious by reducing waste, recycling, and even composting.

If you live downtown, you could walk to Hop Cat, as well as enjoy the nearby Lexington Opera House, Rupp Arena, and a multitude of bars and restaurants offering good food and various nightlife and entertainment options. This area is walkable from several neighborhoods including Gratz Park, Woodward Heights, and UK Campus. And there are many residential properties for sale downtown as well.
