Hopjacks “Filling Station” is a small yet well stocked craft beer specialty retail store (emporium) and tasting bar with artisanal food product offerings. Hopjacks Filling Station is managed and staffed by Tim Dohms, one of the foremost beer experts in the area, who writes the “Beer Garden” weekly column in the Pensacola News Journal and who has been syndicated in numerous online blogs and magazines for his extensive beer knowledge. Employees are dressed in blue jeans and custom “mechanics style” button down shirts.
Hopjacks newest establishment includes a tasting room, retail beer sales, and cured meats & cheeses, along with 33 taps and hundreds of bottled beers.
The Hopjacks Filling Station is located at 3101 E Cervantes Street and is sure to be a great addition to the growing Pensacola Craft Beer scene. You can do your part in supporting that scene along with local businesses by stopping by and participating in the festivities. Sounds like a great time!
