Top Hops is Ted Kenny’s dream come true.  A beer shop, tasting bar and culture center for craft and import beers, all in one establishment.  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. Top Hops is not just a retail store — it’s a celebration of beer, and the good people who brew it.

Our environment is simple and cozy, with space to browse over 600 bottles and cans from around the world.  Join us at our tasting bar where you can sample a flight of freshly poured beer, or try out a bottle from the fridge. And as always, we’ll fill up a growler of fresh beer for you to take home with you to enjoy later. Bring it back and fill it up anytime.

Top Hops offers more than just great tasting beer. We host a wide range of educational events, book signings, brewmaster visits and food pairings. We foster appreciation for the craft and history of great beer. We are merchants AND advocates.

The class was very insightful. I learn a few things i didn't know about even being a big beer adocate. I would definitely recommend anyone to try the class. The instructor was out going, laid back, and knowledgeable. I will definitely try another class in the future.

I highly recommend this class for anyone who is into beer or just looking for something fun to do. Class was held in a middle of a beer shop/bar in LES. The background noise and activity added to the energy without it being too distracting. The instructor, Josh, was an excellent balance of entertaining and incredibly knowledge. I was also impressed w/ the value. Over the course of the 1.5hr class, you taste 12 beers, many of which are fairly expensive or super difficult to get in the states. I've taken a ton of tasting classes on CourseHorse (not a lush, I swear!) and I think this one is my favorite. Can't wait to take my next class w/ Josh

This class was great! Instructor was laid back and made everyone feel at ease. He taught us a lot including the history of the beer styles and breweries, and what to look for when tasting a beer, but kept it very fun and entertaining the whole time.

Awesome class! Learned a lot about all types of beer. Instructor was great and super friendly. When I booked this class, I originally thought it was a bit expensive but it was actually worth every penny because we got to try a lot of unique and interesting types of beer (none of which was cheap). Would absolutely return for another class!
