The HOPPY Kitchen prepares quality food from scratch, using fresh, never frozen locally sourced products whenever possible. Our concept remains 100% driven on serving the best, freshest, quality comfort foods we can produce. We built our menu utilizing many longtime family recipes, and then combined them with some fresh new ideas from our talented chefs and are now offering our version great pub style foods in a super casual atmosphere. We are conveniently located in the historic downtown district of Conroe, Texas, just a half block off Frazier (Hwy 75) at the Copperhead Brewery. Sharing the same location with this award-winning brewery, we are now the premier destination in the Conroe Area for handmade artisan food, combined with quality craft beer.
The HOPPY Kitchen specializes in from scratch artisan PIZZAS, prime country club style HAMBURGERS, fresh cold water Atlantic Cod FISH & CHIPS, a real Texas CHILI made using smoked beef brisket, along with other yummy seasonal comfort foods. The brewery did not have enough room to build out a kitchen, so we converted a 40-foot international shipping container into a fully functional commercial kitchen, complete with commercial cooking equipment and big commercial ovens. As a result, we are a small package, that is delivering food that is big on taste. We are utilizing our huge stand-up 80-quart mixer to not only make our pizza dough from scratch, but we are making all our brioche buns and sour dough bread from scratch. We do not have a freezer in the kitchen, as we understand that fresh food just tastes better.
The HOPPY Kitchen understands that FRESH does not deliver. So each week, or several times each week, we travel to our local markets, to secure the best and freshest food we can source. We are hand picking our produce at the local markets, we have a local fish market that gets us fresh Atlantic Cod that has never been frozen, and our local meat market is providing us with the best meats, including freshly ground PRIME beef, handmade sausages, and hormone free pork. We have worked hard to partner with these local vendors because they consistently provide the quality products we demand. We are continuing to listen to our customers, we are always learning from the employees we have hired, and we are always working to improve our methods and menu. If you ever have any feedback or suggestions, we are here to serve you, and would love to hear your thoughts and comments.
The brewery has beautiful taproom that is climate controlled, it is complete with tables, chairs, a billiards table, foos-ball tables, and a large wooden bar, plus they have a large, covered patio that has tables, chairs, benches, fans, a washer game, and a ping-pong table. The HOPPY Kitchen food is welcome anywhere within the brewery, with the sole exception of the FISH & CHIPS, the brewery requires those be eaten exclusively outside on the patio. The brewery and The HOPPY Kitchen are separate businesses and so we work hard to respect their wishes. The HOPPY Kitchen and the Copperhead Brewery are dog friendly, so your well-behaved dogs are always welcome on the patio. Ensure you ask our person at our window for a dog treat, we always have one for your canine family members.
We are open for LUNCH and DINNER, Monday through Saturday, and would be honored to have you come dine with us at the brewery, we also offer take-out, or call us and we will be happy to work with you on a curb-side pick-up, with you never having to leave the car!

The HOPPY Kitchen • Current Menu and Chef's Specials
This section will share a little information about our food.
FROM SCRATCH ARTISAN PIZZA
Our pizzas are all hand-made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients we can source. Chef has created our unique pizza dough, it is made in our 80qt mixer, from scratch in our kitchen. Our dough is made to rise and crisp nicely, while remaining soft and tender inside. The Chef makes his own marinara and blanco sauces fresh, and then we add only the finest toma and pecorino romano cheeses. All of our chesses are obtained from Houston Dairymaids, a firm that specializes in hand-made cheeses. We buy whole fresh pepperoni, salami, pineapple, tomatoes, red onions plus a blend of fresh mushrooms (shiitaki, cremini, and oyster) and slice all of these in house to ensure quality and freshness.
PRIME COUNTRY CLUB HAMBURGERS
All of our hamburgers are ground fresh using only PRIME beef we acquire locally at the Majkszak's Meat Market, all burgers are placed on either a Cheddar Bacon Bun or a Brioche Bun made freshly by the Manna - Bread from Heaven Bakery. We use only aged vermont cheddar Cheese that we obtain from Houston Dairymaids that specializes in hand made cheeses. We add mustard, lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, and pickles to every burger unless asked to do otherwise. Jalapeno peppers, ketchup, and mayonnaise are always available on request.
COLD ATLANTIC COD, FISH & CHIPS
Our fish and chips use only fresh Atlantic Cod that is flown in several times a week fresh from Maine. We do not use or own a freezer in our kitchen, so fresh fish was so very important. We found a seafood market that can deliver the freshest fish we can find. The chef then uses the Copperhead Select to make the beer batter. It is fried until the outisde is gold brown, and it is served with malted vinegar. We also have the chefs own lemon, caper, aioli available for a nominal charge. The cod is white, light, and flakey.
Our pulled pork sandwiches begin with whole bone in pork butts. (pork shoulders) These are are natural, hormone free pork buuts we obtain from Majkszak's Meat Market. Chef seasons them, and cooks them until they are ready to shred. He hand shreds the pork, and then serves it on a brioche bun with his own Striker Beer-Spicy-Mustard Sauce. It is unlike any other pulled pork sandwich you have ever had.
SMOKED CHICKEN BREAST
Our smoked chicken begins with all natural whole skinless chicken breasts that are always fresh and never frozen, they are vegetarian fed, and they have been fed no added hormones or steroids. We trim them and season each one with our own special blend of seasonings, then slow smoke them until they are tender and juicy. We serve these hot or cold on a smoked chicken sandwich or as a topping to our large cesar salad.
THE FRESH MUSHROOM DIFFERENCE
We have decided based on supply issues, to focus on using only fresh Cremini mushrooms, which are baby portabello mushrooms. These mushrooms in our opinion are much more flavorful than the white button mushrooms and always commercially available. The cremini mushrooms are allowed to grow just until the cap opens and flattens out, and when sauteed or fried they turn a deep chocolate brown. Cremini mushrooms have an earthy, mild taste. While the difference in taste between button mushrooms and creminis is small, some people find the flavor of creminis to be richer and more appealing. We use only fresh cremini that have been chopped to use on our pizzas, we sauteed fresh cremini mushrooms in butter when added to our Prime country club hamburgers, or we use our own beer batter to make freshly battered fried mushrooms. One taste and you can see how fresh never frozen food made to order just has more flavor.
TEXAS RED CHILI - MADE WITH A SMOKED BEEF BRISKET
Our chili is made from scratch using only the best PRIME smoked beef brisket for the meat, then using an old Houston family Texas chili recipe that combines lots of herbs, spices, and it's unique chili powder blend, the chef uses some Copperhead Select to create a Texas Original. This chili is spicy, flavorful, and is just the right amount of hot. Come try a bowl of chili, or an old fashioned chili pie, both are topped with aged Vermont Cheddar and red onions.
All of our food made from scracth, always fresh, as our concept is all about fresh comfort pub food that pair well with the craft beer offered by the brewery. We do a menu that will change, based on what we find fresh and interesting. We are here to serve good food to you, and welcome all comments, statements, or feedback. We want every experience The HOPPY Kitchen to be one you enjoy, we understand that life is full of choices and we appreciate anyone that has made the choice to dine with us!
Fresh does not deliver, so we go to the best markets to get the best ingredients.
