This, is what I would call a ‘real neighborhood bar’ that also offers food; so if you’re in the mood for Burgers, fries and a good draft beer, this is your place. They have live music on Saturday nights and from what I could tell, their line up is local and very fun with a bit of blues sprinkled in for good measure.
Here’s What I tried:
Burgers and Sandwiches:
Big ‘Ol Burger, 10 oz’s of fresh ground chuck with grilled onions. The grilled onions make all the difference in the world of a nice big burger.
Yanni’s Famous Beer Brat, pork bratwurst made with California Garlic and Lagunitas Beer. The brat is packed with garlic; so don’t kiss anyone after you eat this delicious Brat.
Salads and Soups:
Classic Caesar, with romaine, croutons, parmesan, and anchovy dressing; a nice healthy alternative.
Snacks and Fries:
Housemade French Fries, cut fresh daily and fried to a crispy golden brown; delicious.
Rocky Chicken Wings, tossed with their house buffalo sauce or salt and pepper. A bit spicy but tender and moist.
Chorizo and Cheese Nachos, tortilla chips with chorizo, cheese, salsa and jalapenos; just what the doctor ordered with a big draft beer.
Fabulous Pickles, fried pickle chips with chipotle ranch dipping sauce. A novel menu item, which is good none the less.
Saracino Unoaked Chardonnay: a great chardonnay, I would pair this with the salad.
Naughty Boy Chardonnay: another amazing Chardonnay, you can pair this wine with the nachos.
They were having a memorial for their General Manager, so the place was jam-packed. You got a feel for the people in the best way possible, in honoring the General Managers life with all of his friends, family and customers.
Hopland Tap House is a cozy home pub for the local community and passersby; with the goal to become a gathering spot for a delicious bite and or pint. This is a great place where people can meet and hopefully great friendships can be made. The previous owners had closed Hopland on December 31, 2017; but when the new owners took it over, it turned into what it is today, a sensational spot for both locals and tourists.
It is a fun place with all of the local action, so be sure to stop at Hopland Tap and Grill, it’s a great way to end a trip.
