The Hop Lot team is grateful for your patronage and encouragement when we could only provide take-out service.  Now we are excited to start the next phase of a controlled reopening, by welcoming you and your family to come and enjoy our Beer Garden.

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, and we have been working for weeks on a plan 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 summer.  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.

Key Changes:

  1. We’ll be operating at less than 50% capacity.  Seating is first come, first served
  2. All seating is 100% outside.  As of now, there is no rain cover so please plan and dress accordingly.
  3. NO CASH SALES. All ordering will be done online from YOUR PHONE. We will provide you with WiFi and a URL for ordering. Please make sure someone in your party has a fully charged smartphone.
  4. Our game area and sandbox will remain closed for the duration of the summer, but we encourage our guests to bring their own board games to enjoy at their tables.
  5. No customers will be permitted in the taproom, but restrooms will be open.
  6. We will have a separate entrance and exit to the Beer Garden.

Staying Safe – Your Part:

  3. Walking the grounds other than to the restroom, food pickup window, entering/exiting is prohibited.
  4. Co-mingling, moving/combining furniture is not permitted.
  5. Gathering anywhere outside of your table is not permitted.
  6. Any guests that choose not to follow these guidelines will be asked to leave for the safety of our other guests and staff.

Steps for Ordering and Contactless Serving:

  1. NO CASH SALES. All ordering will be done online from YOUR PHONE.  We will provide you with WiFi and a URL for ordering.  Please make sure someone in your party has a fully charged smartphone.
  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.

If you’ve made it to the end of this post, we sincerely appreciate you taking these precautions seriously.  We’ll see you in the beer garden this summer!
