Top Hops

Orchard Street South of Delancey has become one of the most interesting couple of blocks on the lower east side.  Just this week self proclaimed beer advocates  Top Hops have opened up a retail shop/bar at 94 Orchard.

It's a cavernous space with a open area and very bright lights as you walk in, the middle section is the bar/tasting are and in the back many, many fridges filled with every possible kid of beer imaginable.
They still seem to be working on their lighting as the beer fridges where under lit and the bar area so bright you could do an autopsy.  Given they have only been open 4 days I'm sure they are still figuring things out.  Certainly this is hands down the most serious beer place on the Lower East Side.

Hi Mark!

How are you? Apologies for my long time in responding. Been crazy busy since returning from PV. Finally, a nice quiet Sunday morning here and Kevin is like, "have you emailed Mark back yet?". If I dont put reminders on a post it, then I can at times be forgetful.

Anyways, I was laughing about your article about using all the meat parts. Last weekend, at my fave restaurant, enjoying a perfect hot toddy at the bar and watching one of the chefs plop a pigs head on the counter (in the kitchen, not on the bar), and then proceeded to watch-and at times shudder-at him expertly cut of all the meat from the head. beginning with the ears. Snip. Snip.

This morning for brekky, challah french toast and alot more coffee. Then off to the flea market with a friend.

Have a great day!
