Hop's has made it TWO years! We greatly appreciate all the support from everyone that has helped us along the way and eaten at Hop's. Be sure to check out our events and follow Hop's on social media for up to day post.
Hop's will be closing soon for the year. We will use this time sample new foods and drinks, explores the outdoors, enjoy friends and family, and reflect on ways to make Hop's more enjoyable for you.
Over the winter, We are spending time scheduling events, tasting new foods and drinks, and making improvements to the facility. We will be re-opening for the year some time in March.

In keeping with my previous life (Director of the Center for Environmental Education at Morehead State University), Hop's focuses on supporting local and reducing our environmental impact through waste reduction and recycling, purchasing local ingredients, solar power, conservation, and supporting local non-profits.
Hop's focuses on local eats and drinks. What does this mean? This means that we use lots of local ingredients, have a seasonal menu, local beers, cocktails made with Kentucky distilled spirits (bourbon, gin, rye, vodka & rum), local wines, and we support our local community.
Hop's was the dream of my late husband John Haight (aka Hop). He dreamed of having a place on our property in the Red River Gorge where people could casually hang out and enjoy conversations, reminiscence of past adventures, and plan future adventures. I am forever gratefully for all of the adventures that John and I had together.
