HopCat is celebrating its 9th year in business by having a party and you're invited!

The party will be at all of its locations around the country, so obviously Grand Rapids will be celebrating. And how can you have a HopCat party without their famous Crack Fries? You can't.

You can get FREE crack fries (with any purchase) between 11a-5p on January 21st.

And the annual Crack Fries Eating Contest will be held at 3 p.m. If you think you have what it takes to eat the most fries you need to sign up in advance, either by email, by phone, or in person by 2:30pm on the day of the event. It also costs $5 to enter which will be matched by HopCat and donated to the Humane Society of West Michigan. All winners will receive a HopCat giftcard while first place winner will get a travel voucher to the Summer Beer Festival. How cool!

All the festivities begin at 11 a.m. on January 21st when the restaurant releases a limited edition bottles of the 2017 Oil Spiller, and 2017 Red Nymph. These will be released exclusively in Grand Rapids! Of course, they'll have a bunch of other HopCat beers on draft.
