New East Lansing bar sells 100 taps from 1 brewery

A new East Lansing bar says it made a splash on its opening day.

HopCat says it set an informal world record by having the most brews on tap at one bar from a single brewery.

It teamed with Short's Brewing Company of Bellaire to have 100 different Short's beers on tap when the restaurant and bar made its debut on Thursday. The previous record number of beers was in the 70s and was set last year in California.

The Lansing State Journal says hundreds of people lined up for the 11 a.m. opening of the bar in the hometown of Michigan State University.

Short's offerings Thursday include "Lil Wheezy," `'Stray Cat Street Fighting," `'Yer My Boy Blue" and "MMMKAY."

HopCat's flagship location is in Grand Rapids.
