Good news for brew-folks in Ohio/west PA/north Indiana-PGA

HopCat, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based craft brewer with nine locations and three more in development, may open a downtown Cleveland location as part of nuCLEus, the proposed mixed-use skyscraper near Quicken Loans Arena.

The bar and restaurant known for having as many as 130 beer taps in its locations has leased 8,500 square feet at nuCLEus, the 48-floor office, hotel, retail and parking complex, according to a lease memorandum recorded Aug. 10 in Cuyahoga County land records.

The lease was signed by HopCat founder and owner Mark Sellers, as a member of Hopcat-Cleveland LLC, and Robert Stark, the founder of Stark Enterprises of Cleveland, as a member of Huron-Gateway LLC. Stark has obtained preliminary city planning approvals to develop the site between Prospect Avenue and Huron Road near East Fourth Street in a joint venture with J-Dek Investments, a Solon-based real estate firm.
