Every time I'm in Kansas City I check out this store. It is conveniently located for those staying near Westport and the Plaza. From the outside it looks a bit small, but they do pack quite a bit of craft beer in there. There is a good amount of cold beer along the back wall. There are some displays with some single bottles as well. About two years ago I found corked and cage La Folie here. Other notables include Boulevard (including Smokestacks), Tallgrass, Great Divide, New Belgium Lips of Faith, and Odell offerings. The prices are pretty reasonable and the staff is helpful.

Probably my favorite beer store in KC. Has a solid selection. Was able to get Enjoy By this morning and one of the workers let me know that they had a bottle of Espresso IRS in the back. A few beers were a little old (Wooky Jack 5 months old on the shelf), but it wasn't the norm. A very good selection of local and American craft beer. If you are looking for a great international selection in KC, I would suggest Royal Liquor.

Fair prices. Everything seemed to be about 10% cheaper than a number of other stores around town.

This store in midtown KC is well lit and spacious. The beer section is laid out nicely with different spaces for crafts, imports, seasonals, etc.

The beers in the store were from all over the nation. There was a better selection than what I can find in Springfield, MO, just 3 hrs away. The store was well stocked.

The service was great. We were helped by 2 different people who knew what they were talking about with the beers and who weren't afraid to offer recomendations based on what we were looking at.

Gomer's has been redesigned, so it's time for a new review. The new store is in the same location as the old one, but instead of an old worn down building it's now a new, clean, well lit, spacious store.

The service is perfect. They don't bug you too quickly, but if you ask questions they are available and knowledgeable. The quality is also top-notch, and it seems like the new store has been able to offer a better selection than the old one.

There are mega-stores with a wider selection, but this is my favorite place to go. The mega-stores don't sell their stock as quickly and the beer you get may not be as fresh.

Stopped by here last Saturday on my way to a friend's house in Westport. It's not a big place, but it's my understanding that it is a temporary location until the place next door is done. The beer appears to be well take care of and moves frequently. Service was great. They were proactive, asking me questions and offering good recommendations. The selection is good. KC gets a few thing that I don't get in Columbia. I would love to see a "mix a six" section. Good selection of bombers and 750s. I've love to see more Belgians. Prices are reasonable and in some cases better than I've seen in other stores. It is a good store to check out if you are in the area. I'll definitely be back.

Stopped here on a business trip recently while in KC (following an epic breakfast at Arthur Bryant's). Nice selection of regional and local beers, reasonable prices. Kind of weird layout and only some beers (mostly 6packs) in coolers. Great selection of oddball wines. Staff made themselves available, asked if I was looking for anything. Lots of Boulevard, a handful of others I didn't recognize, decent Belgian selection.

I wouldn't go out of my way but if you're nearby, it's worth a stop. Arthur Bryant's is roughly 5 miles away.

Gomer's is the best selection in Kansas City proper. The selection is good. They tend to keep some of the better stuff in back or on a reservation list, not a bad thing, but sometimes everything isn't out for you to see. Even if you aren't a regular they are helpful and if you ask, they might have some good stuff for you to try. The store isn't in a rough area of town but not the friendliest, don't worry about that the customers are mostly Plaza and Westport business people. They have moved to a temporary store while the tear down and rebuild the old one. This will hopefully help with the look and feel as well as open up the aisles a little bit. The best beer selection you can find in the city.
