A brewery owned by a husband-and-wife team is settling into the area's beer scene.

Cathy DeHaan and Mark DeHaan, the couple behind DeHop’s Brewery & Café in Walker, called upon their Dutch heritage to bring the “warmth, friendliness and openness of an Amsterdam brewpub to West Michigan,” according to the DeHop’s website.

The brewery, located at 363 Cummings Ave., features 16 beers on tap, such as Gregory Peck IPA, Foghorn Pale Ale, Leghorn Brown Ale and Goldie Hen Belgian Wheat.

The menu features standard pub fare, such as burgers and salads, and also includes tacos and vegetarian options.

The brewery often hosts trivia nights and live music.

DeHop’s, which opened this winter, tapped Grand Rapids native Brian Lindberg as head brewer.

Lindberg got his start with homebrewing while attending Western Michigan University. He later moved on to commercial brewing for Saugatuck Brewing Co. before coming to DeHop’s.

DeHop’s Brewery & Café’s regular hours are from 4-10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The taproom is closed on Monday and Sunday.
