The son of an Air Force pilot, Hop Shop owner Patrick Villafane was born in Germany and grew up watching adults have conversations around beer. The spacious shop he opened in Plaza Midwood in November 2016 brings an easy-going atmosphere to a neighborhood that gets busier every day. The interior includes benches and tables and even two upholstered porch swings, all with seats facing each other to drive real-life interactions.
