Nice central location in Ann Arbor, the entire Hopcat service standard, but the local breweries are a constraint on the quality of what can be found to drink.

Michigan’s premier beer bar chain. Bustling spot in a central location in downtown Ann Arbor. A bit obnoxious on the decor, but expected for a craft beer spot on a college campus. Great selection- guaranteed to have something for every beer drinker. Lots of locals and a lot of specialty stuff as well- hopcat exclusives and collaboration beers, rare stuff in bottles and on tap. Food is a bit over the top. Sexied-up bar food on the heavy-greasy-meaty-cheesy side. Just reading the menu will fill you up with enough carbs that you won’t be able to drink as many beers as you want. Service isn’t bad, but a bit care-free. Prices fair, but on the steep side for the pours you get. All things considered, it’s a must stop for the serious beer enthusiast.

It's HopCat. It's a very large place with lots of seating options, pretty good service, and somewhere around 100 taps that they're able to keep rotating with the kind of business they do. The main draw here is that you can get exceptional food as well as exceptional beer in a rare combination. This is a must-stop in Ann Arbor, though not as "local" as Ashley's.

Went there a couple times during a recent holiday trip back to old stomping grounds, went to grad school at UM. Loved both the food and beer selection. Had the family and everyone had a good time. I even enjoyed their vegetarian "kitchen sink" dish!

Visited on a Saturday at 6, plenty of seats to be had. The space isn't nearly as large or bright as the flagship location in Grand Rapids, but it is decently sized, with a large round bar dominating the center of the space. They have 96 handles with a solid variety of styles and brewers. Didn't get a full meal, but did get an order loaded crack fries, which are a must for Hopcat.
