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