Top Hops is a unique beer obsessed hybrid  --We're a tasting bar meets craft and import bottle shop meets classroom with a flagship location on Manhattan's LES plus two satellite locations.  It’s the kind of place where seasoned beer geeks can share their enthusiasm and new craft beer fans can learn a bit more about the magic combination of hops, yeast, barley, and water. Peruse our Orchard Street fridges with 700+ bottles and cans from around the world. Join us at our tasting bar where you can sample a flight of freshly poured beer, try a bottle from the fridge, all while enjoying some beer-friendly local bites. We will happily fill up a growler or crowler of fresh beer for you to take home to enjoy later. More than a bottle shop, more than a craft beer bar, Top Hops is a celebration of beer and the good people who brew it. We host a wide range of educational events and brewmaster visits. We foster an appreciation for the craft and history of great beer. We are merchants AND advocates.

We have 20 tap lines which we rotate regularly so you always have a new beer to sample.  And, we clean our own draft lines to ensure that every pour is to our exacting and consistent standards.  Our goal is to deliver the beer to our customers as intended by the brewmasters.
