Joe Short’s 40th Birthday Party at HopCat Grand Rapids

December 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

It wouldn’t be Joe’s birthday without an epic tap takeover at HopCat, but this year we made it bigger than ever! We’re ushering in a new decade of Joe Short with not one, but two celebrations! Join us Thursday, December 13th at HopCat Grand Rapids for the classic Joe birthday party you know and love. There will be 40 beers on tap, a mustache competition for a stash of prizes, and hopefully some annual t-shirt signing. But the party doesn’t stop there, we’re continuing in on Saturday, December 15th at HopCat Detroit! Join us for a second birthday tap takeover, ‘stache competition and this shindig will include a special performance of Braxton Hicks & the Contractions in the Huma Room at 8:00 pm! Help Joe welcome his 40s in style and with a Short’s brew in hand!
