    About Hop Merchants Bottle Shop & Taproom

    Hop Merchants Bottle Shop & Taproom is a craft beer bottle shop and tasting room. We offer 16 rotating taps of Los Angeles-area beer as well as a wide variety of bottles and cans from your favorite independent breweries, which you can purchase to go or to enjoy in-house (with $1.50 corkage).  We also have an open food policy, meaning outside food is welcome and delivery is even encouraged. It's all good!

    Located in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood, California, our mission is to channel our passion for great beer, community, and create a fun, chill atmosphere for people to hang, drink, shop and debate the deeper mysteries of life...such as who would win in a fistfight between Batman and Captain America? What's the difference between partly cloudy and partly sunny?  If the Zombie Apocalypse started today, what would be your weapon of choice?  Why are there no such thing as B batteries?  If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?

    The late ABC sportscaster Jim McKay might have said that tonight encompassed the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.

    The defeat was delivered by the televisions, which showed the Los Angeles Dodgers engage in their annual tradition of collapsing in the playoffs.

    But the thrill of victory was felt by Well Dressen Campers. They put on a real Double Fest (not to be confused with the monthly meeting of fans of the 1998 Lindsay Lohan vehicle The Parent Trap), doubling successfully in four rounds!

    We Have a Bad Feeling About This came in second with a strong double in the final round.

    Third place was decided by a tie-breaker with Boss Vic Koss narrowly triumphing over Useless Knowledge, Inc.

    Thanks to everyone for playing and a special jazz fan tip of the hat to the team that answered "Grover Washington" in a question about American Presidents.
