Top Hops is a unique beer obsessed hybrid  —  We're a tasting bar meets craft and import bottle shop meets classroom and event space.   We have two market satellite locations as well as a robust online beer shop and virtual event and educational presence.  We are 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. Join us at our tasting bars where you can sample a flight of freshly poured beer or try a bottle from the fridge, all while enjoying some beer-friendly local bites.  Interested in learning more about beers with a tasting event, virtual or in person?  Look no further.  

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 foster an appreciation for the craft and history of great beer. We are merchants AND advocates.

94 Orchard St. News

Dear Friends,

We’ve been so grateful to share our home at 94 Orchard Street with you for the last nine years.  In a bittersweet update, we've officially closed our doors at this beloved location.  Given the obvious challenges presented by COVID, our landlord made the difficult decision to sell the building in early Spring 2021.  Yes, a gut punch, especially after we had successfully managed to survive the annus horribilis. 

We’re taking advantage of this opportunity to hit the pause button and take a very big deep breath as we consider our next brick and mortar moves.  In the meantime, we remain beer obsessed — that will never change — and excited to serve you at our Urbanspace 570 Lex and Essex Market satellite locations.  Our online delivery and shipment services continue uninterrupted, observant of all coronavirus protocols.  Ditto for our popular Virtual Tasting Classes.  And, we’re very keen to host live tasting events whenever our customers are ready to gather in person.  

We are beyond grateful for your support and partnership over the years. And we’re looking forward to the next chapter — filled with friends both old and new, plenty of great beer, and a mutual thirst for camaraderie and bonhomie.  We are so very, very grateful for your friendship over the years. 

Ted and Christina
