About a month ago, The Hop Stop got itself a brand new mural, and a quite appropriate one at that. That open tap is pouring out a heck a lot of beer. “HopStopMural” seems to be the name or at least a hashtag the artist is trying to promote. Tracking down the artist took a little work. “Tomasek Billups” turns out to be Anthony Billups and Dean Tomasek. There’s a rather obvious selfie suggestion in that Instagram link, by the way. There seem to be at least two people using the @musiccitymurals tag – Billups and Katie Tucker. No word on the connection at press time.
UPDATE: As noted in An update and a goodbye, The Hop Stop will almost certainly be closed by the time you see this. There were two other murals associated with this site – see “An update and a goodbye” for those. I will update later on the fate of all these murals once the new owners have decided what to do with them.
UPDATE: This mural has been replaced with a new flower-themed mural. The mural in “An update and a goodbye” has been painted over.
Located at 2909B Gallatin Pike. The mural is on the north side of the building. Plenty of parking – and some good food and some good beer!
