Hops Grill & Brewery
Posted by Johnny Mack on 10/01/2008
Hops prides itself on its micro-beers. Well, it has to hold onto something of pride. It's located in a shopping mall alongside Route 1 in Alexandria. The place is crowded, so expect to wait at the equally crowded bar until a table or booth (which is preferred) opens up. Once you're seated, you're looking at typical bar food. The pork chops may be good, the baby back ribs o.k., but there's nothing there that's memorable. Just a lot of noisey, preposterous people trying to connect. A friend and I went in, sat at the bar for a couple bourbons and a Hops beer (as noted, not bad) and then Steve said pointedly with the bartender listening, "Fine, we've had a drink or two ... now let's go out and get a real steak."
