We all share a great responsibility to demonstrate that Michigan can begin to safely relax pandemic-fighting restrictions without causing a resurgence of disease.  We take this responsibility very seriously, and we trust you do as well.  None of us wants to see anyone get sick, nor do we want to see businesses have to close down again.  We strive to be a leading example of how to safely operate while maintaining the highest quality experience for our customers.

Part of safe operations is strictly following CDC guidelines about social distancing and prevention hygiene, such as frequently washing one’s hands and wearing face coverings, as well as cleaning and disinfecting public spaces.  Anyone that does not recognize and value the benefit of these steps for our community should stay home.  Anyone that does not respect our other guests and staff by following the rules outlined below will be asked to leave.

Our beautiful outdoor space gives us a unique opportunity to far exceed standard social distancing guidelines that will keep both our guests and staff safe and comfortable.  We’re excited to bring you this environment, however, some things will not look the same.

We ask that you please read and follow these Beer Garden rules, and encourage you to share them with friends and family that may plan to visit Hop Lot throughout the year.  We will adapt as conditions and requirements change, so please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, sign up for our newsletter, and visit our website to get the latest updates.  We anticipate our phone will be busy.

Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation, and understanding as we all endeavor to get through these trying times together…in unity and with beer.

Steps for Ordering and Contactless Serving:

  1. Quickest & most convenient ordering will be done online from your phone at your table.  No need to get up or stand in line.  You may also order at the outside bar.  If paying by cash, please use this option.
  2. We will have a serving table at a safe distance between the server and your table.
  3. All alcohol orders will require an ID. We ask that you put your IDs on the serving table.  If wearing a mask at your table, the server will ask that you quickly remove your mask to verify identification.
  4. Drinks will be placed on the serving table for you to grab.

We sincerely appreciate you taking these precautions seriously.  We’ll see you in the beer garden this summer!
