A sneak peek into Hopping Gnome’s new location opening next month

Hopping Gnome Brewing Company

Big things are in store for Hopping Gnome Brewing Company, who originally opened in 2015. After spending the last eight years at 1710 E. Douglas Avenue, the local brewery has outgrown their space and ready to make the big move… but it’s not too far.

The tap room, which will be open for another week and measures in at 700-square-feet, will soon be a memory. Coming May 2, fans will have to update their address book with a new location.

Hopping Gnome is moving to 1719 E. Victor St. which is basically in the old space’s backyard. The two buildings share a back alley. 1719 E. Victor is near the corner of Douglas and Hydraulic, so fans won’t have to go far.

And when they do make it, they’ll be excited to know that the new location is more than triple the space. The tap room alone will be double the size of the original. Then you take into account the patio and lawn, and you’re looking at another 2,000-square-feet of space that I predict will be one of the busiest places this summer.

The taproom has two garage doors that will be open during nice weather days. An assortment of high-top and low-top tables fill the inside to make room for more patrons. And those who spent their days hanging out at the bar that had limited seating, can still do so, but with more of their friends. A handful of televisions lines the east and west walls inside.

You can expect live music, food trucks and of course beer from Hopping Gnome. I greatly enjoy the sours at Hopping Gnome. Their HBIC sour blueberry was the chef’s kiss.

Exciting times are ahead for Hopping Gnome. The vibe at the new digs makes you wish summer were already here. I’m talking the enjoyable cool beautiful days, not the 110 degree sweltering heat, want to rip your nose off because of the allergies type of day. But even if it’s the latter, a cold brew will help.
