Default What to buy in Kansas City?

I am visiting family in Kansas City. Went to a liquor store and see quite a big selection. What do people from this region suggest I buy? I see a lot of boulevard brewing beers, good buy?

Boulevard, yes. Especially smokestacks (if you see Bourbon Barrel Quad, buy it).

If you like lambic, and geueze, try to get to Gomers in Lee's Summit, they have a lot (tons of imports in general including absurd amounts of Mikkeler).

Since you are from Argentina I assume a lot is new?

Try anything from Founders, Bell's Expedition, anything from Lagunitus. There is lots of good stuff. I recommend calling Gomers in Lee's Summit and asking when Aaron is working and going there to have him help you out. He is the best in town, hands down. Bring money, I never walk out of this place less than a few hundred lighter.

If you want to hit a bar:

Flying Saucer in the Power and Light District has the best selection.
Waldo Pizza in Waldo has the best bartenders
Swagger in Waldo is cool

If you can make it out to Lawrence, KS (35 minutes from downtown KC), Free State is one of the best brewpubs in the country.

Depends which side of town you are on.

Man you're making me miss KC!! I lived there for 7 years before I moved to Cumblous OH.

Anyway, if you're on the KS side check out Lucas Liquors, they'll have a great selection as well. And I forgot about RedX in Parkville, it's a weird place but they have a pretty good mix and match 6 pack selection.

As stated before though, can't go wrong with Gomer's

Good Luck, and eat some Gate's BBQ for me while you're there!

Always amazing how proactively defensive people from the PNW are.

Bell's, Founders and Lagunitas? I'm going to KC (Grainville) on christmas. I might have to stop by Gomers. For some reason we don't have them in Wichita.

That's because you are in Kansas

Goebel's is a pretty nice shop though.

Yes it is. I go there all the time. But I always read about certain styles that I can't get in Wichita and am always curious. I got a Rouge Double Dead Guy from 2008 (bomber bottle) for $4.50 the other day. Sorry to thread jack. Actually, if you can get any of Great Divide's or Avery's that would be good.

Thx for the replys, I am in the Overland Park area. Went to Lukas Liquor last night and there were just so many to choose from. I'll get some of the suggestions!

Forget the beer and go to Jackstack BBQ. There are two of them. The one in OP is on Metcalf.
