as well. I tried the Killer Mac and Cheese and it was delicious. The crack fries really are addicting, just as advertised. There are so many choices (both beer and food) that I'll have to go back soon.

Really nice brewery with some good pub bites, a nice brunch and a really interesting span of craft beers.

An bar with an unbelievably awesome menu selection and relaxed atmosphere. A great place to grab a sandwich for lunch, or to finish out the night drinking with friends. They're french fries are locally known as "crack fries" because they're so dang addicting! As for the beer menu, there are over 50 options at all times, so there is truly something for everyone here! Make sure to ask the bartender about happy hours, since local craft beers often go for half-price - you are definitely in Beer City USA! If you go and decide that the atmosphere isn't for you, it's located on the corner of Ionia Street, amongst almost all of the best GR bars.

Two words- Crack Fries. Honestly, if you haven't been to Hopcat, stop reading this review and go order yourself a big plate of crack fries.

Two words: Crack fries! Make sure you get a side of cheese for dipping. They also have my favorite Lambic on tap!

Touted as the #1 Beer Bar in the World and the #3 Brewpub, and I see why. This place has it. The charm, the mystique, the charisma.

The burgers are the best in Grand Rapids. Seriously. Don't overlook the bottle selection. Yes, their draft selection is great, and everyone knows it, but they also have an amazing selection of bottled beers.
