Gastropub is a British term for a pub which specializes in food a step above the tradition pub grub. The name is derived from combining the terms gastronomy and pub.
Gastropubs have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering expertly prepared cuisine. Staying true to that requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers.
At Hops Supply Co., we are dedicated to the craft of excellent cuisine and delivering hops in its most perfect form exemplified by our selection of craft beers. As hops are the heart of flavor for beer, our local seasonal ingredients are the soul of our culinary inspired American fare. Keeping it fresh, flavorful and at times, unexpected, is the goals we plan on continuing to hit with our first-class service, menu and bar.
The combination of chef-inspired food and our craft bar makes HopsCo a comfortable and inviting gastropub that attracts guests of all types – especially a local crowd who can feel right at home whether ordering a classic favorite or trying a new culinary delight!
The General Manager for Hops Supply Co. hails from Columbia, MD and has a lifelong love of the restaurant industry having pressed her first register key in her family's restaurant at only 6 mos old. Coming from a strong background in wine knowledge & tasting, she's parle'd that experience into HopsCo's unique craft beer selection. Although her first love is the ballet; the hospitality industry called her name, but you can still often find her twirling around the restaurant floor.
A Wisconsin native, Tiffany Eslien, Executive Chef for Hops Supply Co. is the soul of this gastropub. A Johnson & Wales graduate, Tiffany got her start in her mother’s kitchen and is a fan of all foods and flavors, but spice is her vice. Given an unlimited budget, Tiffany would strike out to cook in every region around the world. Her mantra: Don’t be afraid of growing slowly, be afraid of only standing still. Good thing her job keeps her on her toes!
