Default Kansas City trip...looking for brewpubs

I am making a trip to the Kansas City Mo area this weekend and am looking for good brewpubs to visit and brewerys to tour. I will be staying in Liberty, Mo. I have 4 days to check out KC and get my drink on.

Thanks For The Help & Cheers!

Boulevard is definitely a great brewery to tour.

75th Street Brewery is a good brewpub. The food is pretty good and the beer isn't bad either. Don't go for their wheat. Let me know if/when you go here and I'll join you for a beer (it's just down the road from me).

There is a pretty good brewery in Weston. I think it's called O'Malley's. Weston is about 10 mi NW of the airport.

Free State in Lawrence is great. The pubs in KC are good but not great. We have some pretty nice beer bars though.

Agreed. Too bad you're not in Columbia, MO though. Flat Branch Brewery is the definitely the brewpub champion in the greater MO/Kansas area.

I'll have to check them out next time we go back to Lawrence to see my wife's side of the family.

Ew Lawrence? If you're lucky you'll find a way to get stuck in Columbia.

Free State has recently expanded their repertoire and is turning out great beers right now. They had two different IPAs, a cali common, an imperial stout, a Belgian, in addition to their standard 5 on tap last time I went. Everything is noticeably fresh.

In KC, Boulevard is great, but their tours are booked through for months in advance. As for pubs, The Foundry in Westport has a great selection of brews, and they are attached to a brewery (McCoy's) that is decent at best (IMO). By Downtown, Harry's Country Club has a very nice selection as well.

As for Colombia, never been and don't need to go.

@remilard- what places do you know of in KC with nice selections?

Well for selection I would say Flying Saucer and it's not even close but I don't like the food and atmosphere there as much.

Waldo Pizza has a small but thoughtful selection, Foundry is pretty good after they added the new taps, Swagger is a personal favorite. Barley's isn't bad, most of their 99 taps or whatever I could live without but they tend to have La Folie, a few Ommegang, a few Bear Republic and Yeti on tap which differentiates them from the other places in town (generally) bottle selection is decent too.

I tend to go to The Foundry, Swagger and Waldo Pizza regularly add in some Flying Saucer when they have something I want that nobody else will get and then throw in some Barley's for variety.

Also worth noting that we have a Gordan Biersch. I know that appeals more to certain people and less to others. I like being able to get a reasonably authentic and very fresh German lager from time to time. I'll usually have a pint there if I am in Power and Light for Flying Saucer. Gordan Biersch has an AHA discount that is something like $3 off an order of $10 or more, which is pretty generous if your order is close to $10.
