If you passed by 3110 Guadalupe Street recently, you may have noticed this sign hanging up in the window of the future Hopfields.
A few of us gathered together at the new home of Hopfields last week to cover up the windows and put up a sign to build some suspense before all the magic starts to happen. We painted and cut and taped through the night as we tried hard to imagine what the place will look like once the construction is done, the windows are uncovered and the fruits of this labor of love are finally revealed.
As you can see, it took a group effort to cover up all the windows, and you’d be surprised how hard it is get the entire Hopfields concept across in a succint way and in a space-limited window display. In the end, we kept it simple and decided that “craft beer, French style street food, and savory drinks” sums it all up pretty well.
But, we didn’t spend all of our time covering up windows. This is going to be a pub, after all, so Bay took a moment to introduce us to a few different beers by way of a beer tasting. In between sips, we munched on palate-cleansing wafers and ginger beer and tried to determine our favorites of the bunch.
