You won’t find Bud here. If you’re unfamiliar with Mark Sellers’ HopCat beer bar, listen in on this podcast as Mark tells me all about his love of craft beer and jazz music, his bar’s beginnings, and how HopCat is the “anti-chain” chain.
Like some, I was skeptical at first, because it seemed like HopCat could be just another corporate chain, merely exploiting the craft beer boom. However, after meeting with Mr. Sellers just before the opening of HopCat Louisville, I’ve come away with an entirely different idea about this business. With 132 tap lines serving real craft beer, in addition to many rotating bottles, I’m more than happy that they’re opening a bar in my region and I personally welcome HopCat to Louisville, KY. The Louisville location makes their 9th, with others in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and more coming soon. There is a real passion for beer at this place and a real passion for beer from its owner and founder.
If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you are a brewery and think you have a story to share, I’d be more than willing to learn more about it! Please reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook.
As always, I would be grateful if you subscribed to Building Breweries on iTunes and left me a rating/review. It would go a long way in helping me grow and attract other breweries.
Thank you for listening!
