Favorite Brewpubs in KC area
 
Like the topic says. Post them here. I like the Flying Saucer in power & light for a good selection of beer. What are some others out there that offer a good selection of craft & import brews?

I used to be a fan of River Market Brewery when I worked in KCMO, but I see from the awful Yelp reviews that I was in the minority. . .and that it's now closed.

I'm a fan of the Saucer and McCoy's.

Flying Saucer is a great brewpub. Its been a while, but they used to have Chimay Tripel (white) on tap.

75th street is OK.

Not quite KC area, but Free State in Lawrence is pretty good. Its been a few years since I have been back home.

joeasi 11-19-2010 11:08 AM

Free State is a good brew pub. They're starting to distribute.

I think RM brewery was solid for a while. It went downhill once the ownership changed. You know a brewery is in trouble when they're promoting their Miller/Bud specials. !

75th St then Waldo Pizza, makes for a great night!

There aren't many good brewpubs in KC. In order of quality, I'd list Free State > McCoys > 75th Street. Never been to Amerisports (located in a casino) but I hear their beer is fine.

Beer bars, now... Waldo Pizza, Flying Saucer, Swagger, Foundry, and Beer Kitchen are all worth visiting. :)

I'm also a fan of McCoys. Their Scottish ale is great, as well as the imperial stout. I'm also a big fan of 75th Street. I think that RM was okay but nothing great. Once ownership changed, the quality of the beer really went downhill quick.
Another great place was PowerPlant in Parkville. Alas, they are no more, but the beer was always great. I think inconsistency in the food was their undoing.

Free state is great. 23rd street brewery in Lawrence also has some pretty good beers as does 75th street brewery in Waldo.

cansez 11-24-2010 12:56 PM

McCoys all the way!

showmebeer 12-08-2010 11:39 AM

KC is really only has two brewpubs to speak of, Mccoys and 75th St. We really could use some more. Our beer bar scene has improved greatly over the last couple of years. The new Beer Kitchen is really good

I actually prefer 75th Street Brewery to most brew pubs in the area. It could be that I live close enough to take advantage of all the pubs on 75th Street. However, they have a great deal for locals who want to join their Mug Club. I'm a big IPA fan and I've always been pleased with the IPA's at 75th Street Brewery. However, for a great night out for dinner, Waldo Pizza and their bar The Tap Room is always a great combination. The Tap Room typically has a Bell's brew on tap and I've never been wronged by Bell's.

Cheers.

kcsooner 12-08-2010 12:18 PM

Oh, one more thing...a little bit of drive north of KC, but worth the trip IMO is Weston. The Weston Brewing Company is a great time, beers okay, but it's definitely a fun time.

jtupper 12-10-2010 03:30 PM

not really brewpubs to say, but I was always a fan of Granite City for a more upscale style brewpub, also for the selection of beer you cant beat Barley's Brewhuas on renner in Shawnee.

KCBrewer 12-12-2010 07:37 AM

I suppose I should have titled the thread a little more clearly. Beerpubs, brewpubs, anywhere good beer is served and/or brewed is what I meant.

Thanks for posting. I've been to a couple of the places listed, but will have to try some of the others.

BLacher 12-17-2010 01:29 PM

I liked Hops when it was in Independence. Been gone for a while now, I think there is still one in OP, but not sure and have never been there. Granite City is neat place, not my personal favorite for character, beer selection is great.

Agreed. Freestate is a great brewpub. I, like many others on here enjoy Flying Saucer. If anyone ever makes it down to Sedalia, stop in at 5th Street Brew Pub on the corner of Ohio and 5th street. Great establishment for our small town.

We stopped at Granite City last year on Memorial Day. The food is fantastic!

I'm a fan of McCoy's and Flying Saucer. Although I spend most of my time at Old Chicago off of Metcalf. Beers are a little pricey there but it's close to me and they bring in beers from local brewerys every once in awhile to mix it up.

FredNash 12-28-2010 03:35 PM

I've been to Free State and I loved it. I've heard the Flying Saucer is great, but I haven't been there yet. I'd like to try Boulevard's pub sometime too.

gijoeyb 01-10-2011 10:52 PM

If you have the time, you should hit Weston and go into O'Malley's (500 Welt St
Weston, Missouri 64098)

lumpster 01-12-2011 04:20 PM

flying saucer or 75th street brewery


love the bratzel at flying saucer!!

03greengiant 01-19-2011 12:23 PM

bluelanche 01-23-2011 12:24 PM

Ditto on the Weston Brewing Company.

I second this one. O'Malley's is a wonderful place and even better if your into historical places.

Jonny878 01-31-2011 10:16 PM

Harpos Tuesday night, on the cheap.

Geepto 02-04-2011 07:41 PM

Beer
 
Freestate in Lawrence is good. Now available in bottles on the Kansas side of state line. The beer is better at bar than bottle.

23rd street brewery in Lawrence is also very good.

75 street in KC....love that irish red
