Open all offseason,

except May 11-21

Offseason is the perfect time to enjoy a few cold ones with friends. The crowds are gone, and everyone’s a little more laidback. And while there are numerous places to grab a beer in town, Hops Culture on the Hyman Avenue mall has earned its reputation as the place to go for beer — their suds list includes more than 200 craft beers, including 30 on tap. And since the weather is beginning to turn more summer than winter (fingers crossed!), I like Hops for its indoor/outdoor seating … really, you can sit outside the restaurant yet under the roof at the entry-area “bar.” Also worth noting: Hops rotates its beers regularly, which means you can always try something new. On my radar is the recently tapped brew by Funkwerks out of Fort Collins. And I have set a personal goal of tasting all the fruit-based beers by the end of summer — sounds refreshing, right? Stay tuned.
