Top Hops is a unique beer obsessed hybrid  —  We're a tasting bar with a scrumptious food menu designed to complement our favorite libation.  We are a well curated brick and mortar and online retail shop with depth and breadth.  We are a beer classroom and event space.   We have three New York City market  locations and a mobile Tap Truck available for Private Event Rental.   We are the kind of place where seasoned beer geeks can share their enthusiasm and new craft beer fans can learn a bit more about the magic combination of hops, yeast, barley, and water. Join us at our tasting bars where you can sample our freshly poured beer or try a bottle from the fridge, all while enjoying some beer-friendly bites and camaraderie with fellow beer lovers.  Interested in learning more about beers with a tasting event? Look no further.  

More than a bottle shop, more than a craft beer bar, Top Hops is a celebration of beer and the good people who brew it.  We foster an appreciation for the craft and history of great beer. We are merchants AND advocates.
