Yet another worthy Westport neighborhood spot! Glad our hotel was in walking distance to the multitude of worthy BA options in this area.

Just down the street from Beer Kitchen, McCoys, Char Bar and other spots.

Yup this is a chain....but its a chain of terrific beer spots around the mid west....having visited and enjoyed other Hop Cat locations, this one did not disappoint...

corner location, large main room, upstairs seating/eating options as well as a spacious up stairs/out side area.

Loads(!) of tap options, knowledgeable bartender, large windows out onto the street, outstandingly large pieces artwork of music heavy weights, Miles, Jimi and Keith coming to mind....

Greatly enjoyed my visit....

Typical restaurant setup. Large floor to ceiling glass on one side offering plenty of natural light. A back room with more seating is a bit dark, but otherwise comfy. Ceilings are high throughout. A patio on the roof offerings spacious seating and above average views for beer consumption. The bar area is small, and can get quite crowded, by the wait staff does a good job of getting beer out to tables. Tap list is expensive, and updated hourly, sometimes by stamp to cross out a beer and to highlight a beer that was just put on from the "on deck" selection. Menu is broken down by local 30 beers, and then broken down by style from light to dark, offering folks an opportunity to pick something of interest. Large table share bottles are available as well of some limited beer. Food is fair, although the crack fries are top notch beer snacking.

So traveled to Kansas to visit friends and my friend had a feeling I may enjoy this place and she was correct. We came inside it had a very good size bar, probably would fit 25 people anyway. Draft selection front and back probably close to 80 if I was guessing. Beers coast to coast, with a big emphasis on local as they should.

Bartender was knowledgeable, unfortunately they had to employees call out so the service in the beginning was slow, but got there groove after the first beer.

The food was quality bar food, French fries they call crack fries and 3 or 4 different ways they come everything we got was excellent.

I would strongly suggest trying this place out. If this area didn't have so many places to offer quality food and beer I would have been begging to go back, but so many other choices I need to try.
