Loved the local beer selection and there was choice for all tastes (the American pale ale and the stout were excellent). Food was good, prices very reasonable and the service very friendly.

We recently visited Charlottetown and while standing outside this spot we ran into the owner Mike and he was super helpful telling about his spot but also other local restaurants he highly recommended, also discovered he was originally from our neck of the woods in...ON. We decided to check out his spot first and Mike sent over a flight of beer tasters to the table, on the house (a very thoughtful and nice touch). The menu was really interesting and it changes every two week so you may never get the same thing twice. Our choices were all super tasty, nicely presented and great value for the cost. So refreshing to see a spot that is not serving the ho hum nachos, spinach dip and all the other regular bar food. All in all this was a real gem of a spot and only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was if there is anyone in the group who would prefer wine over beer you would be out of luck, but other than that it is top notch Charlottetown go to spot!More

The food is very good. The menu changes frequently with many vegetarian and vegan options. This was our first visit after Covid-19 changes. The tables are well spaced, they have new stools which are much more comfortable than the old ones. Unfortunately the wait staff...were not wearing masks which made me uncomfortable, I probably won’t be back until the pandemic is over.More

Dropped in for our first post Covid lunch. All government protocols inplace and the food was fab. My burrito was flavorful my friends equally as good. Going back for sure for a dinner experience.

Tried to send a private message to Hopyard instead of posting on social, but there is no contact information on their website. The Shwarma Hot Pocket did not have anything in it except a little rice with savoury spice and no sauce (I had to...use the leftover banana pepper mixture and quinoa mixture from my husband’s ribs and wings to turn it into something edible). Our server offered me a cider with hops in it after I told her I was allergic to hops (thankfully I knew better) and she did not check in on us to see how the meal was going. Awful acoustics made the vinyl pointless. The only redeeming quality about Hopyard is their French fries and sweet potato fries - both are excellent - and both you can get just about anywhere else that does homemade fries. Hop away to spend your money elsewhere instead!More

I came for the beer and decided to get dinner as well. Both were average. They have a selection of local craft beers and focus on the less hoppy variety. They play vinyl records but there seemed to be a lot of distortion which seems...odd when they emphasize the music. They were out of some of the menu items so I went with the Asian beef noodles. They were flavorful but had only 2 small strips of beef, again just an average meal.More

I really, really, really don’t get all the wonderful reviews of this place. Maybe they had too many flights of beer before trying the food? We went for dinner. All the tables are high tops with either an uncomfortable stool or a straight back booth...seat. The beer we ordered wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the best beer I’ve ever had either. We ordered the artichoke bruschetta—artichoke dip with pita triangles and the Cluck Burger—a deep fried chicken breast. First, it took 30 minutes for our food to arrive when the restaurant wasn’t all that busy. It would have been nice to start with the artichoke dip and nosh on that while waiting for the burger. But no matter. The dip should have been hot and bubbly when it arrived, but instead, tasted like it had been sitting around for 25 of the 30 minutes we waited. It was tepid and the cheese on top congealed. And it was way too garlicky for me. The chicken was so tough I had a hard time even tearing off a bite. The best part of the meal was the French fries. The service was not good. Our server never checked back to see if we wanted another beer or to explain why the food was taking so long. Take a pass on this one.More

Wide beer selection with an even more interesting food menu. Plus they played NFL Network which doesn't hurt.

First of all, the acoustics in this place suck, so don't go for the "play vinyl gimmick". I ordered the calamari, it was dreadful, overbreaded and greasy. I told the waitress and then the manager came over and explained that it wasn't there fault because..."that's how the calamari comes, we don't bread ourselves and that maybe I was used to a different kind of calamari!?!" What a joke. They still took it off my bill but the fact that they had such a lame excuse for their frozen "featured" dish looses any chance of getting my respect. Good thing there's lots of idiots would just love craft beer!More
