Great spot in an historic building on Lake Ave. Nice beer selection with what I consider something for everybody. We always stay at the Suites at waterfront plaza and it is in the same building.

Adjacent to Hoops, in the same room, is the Ripple bar. You can't bring beers from Hoops over and you can't bring drinks from Ripple to Hoops (although Ripple has a few Hoops brew options) but they share a section of seating where you can...More
