Hopleaf is a casual brew pub with way above average food. This place has been here for many years and has expanded from one room to 4 to meet the ever increasing demand. They have too many beers on tap to count, good ciders and...More

Food here is fantastic, as is the amazing list of beers on draft! Had the bitterballen appetizer followed by mussels and aioli frites which were all phenomenal. However, waited 10+ mins to order a beer, then it took another 10 minutes to get my beer...More
