Harlem Hops is a black owned and operated business promoting, advocating and introducing the community to brewers of color. Harlem Hops is a collaborative effort of 3 friends. Kim Harris, Stacey Lee and Kevin Duane Bradford all shared a vision and accomplished major goals while establishing a brand to promote and uplift the culture.

This new spot is very cozy whether you are sitting at the bar or a low table top you will feel welcomed. Be sure to take in the decor and pay attention to the signs as they will make you smile.

The beertenders are very knowledgeable in the area of craft beer. The beer flights are such a cute presentation and an exploration of your taste buds with selections of cider, IPA, Lager and so much more.

There is an array of tasty bites of sausage and pretzel, tater tots to the poppin patties (my favorite was the sausage and pepper patty). Be in for a spicy kick of flavorful deliciousness.
