For 1 day, Mich. bar plans 100 taps from 1 brewery
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan restaurant and bar that plans to feature 100 craft beers on tap is planning a record-setting event to mark its opening.
HopCat's East Lansing location opens Aug. 22. It's teaming up with Short's Brewing Co. of Bellaire in an attempt to host the most brews on tap at one bar from a single brewery.
For one day, HopCat's taps all will flow with beer from Short's. It's been "one of the most exciting challenges," according to Short's founder Joe Short. He says in addition to the brewery's year-round brews there will be seasonal ones and new, experimental recipes.
MLive.com reports the previous Guinness World Records mark of 70 beers on tap from one brewery was set in 2012 in California.
HopCat's flagship location is in Grand Rapids.
