It seems like I've been to nearly every Flying Saucer, though this was my first time at the Kansas City location. A suprisingly energized crowd for a Wednesday night (or whatever night they do a trivia thing) two weeks ago. Mostly 20 somethings, but not uncomfortable for us more "mature" types. FC always has a solid selection and this one did not dissapoint. Founders Rye PA on tap along with countless other regional and larger craft brewery offerings. The usual well endowed hotties in plaid school girl skirts and plates on the ceilings and the walls. KC teeters on the edge of beer disaster, but for places like this. Didn't try the food as this visit was after dinner with a business colleague of mine. Very much worth the trip in you're in the area.

Made my first visit to the Kansas City version last week for Perennial night during their Stout week. The bartender was very well versed in all that was available. The event featured BA Abraxas and was handled very well. The food was decent and prices were very reasonable. The selection was well above average and they do try and feature Missouri beers. The beer menu is somewhat difficult to navigate. Just wish the establishment was closer to my home.

I stopped here for a bite to eat and a few beers after work while traveling for business. They definitely have a large craft selection which includes a lot of local or Kansas beers. Its nice when traveling to see a focus on local beers. They definitely had a good variety from across the Country as well as some beers from across the pond. The bar tenders were relatively busy but it was a Saturday night right after dinner. They had good knowledge and would let me sample what I was interested in. The carried a few pumpkin beers since it was September and they appeared to have a large bottle section which I didn't even get into.

They have daily specials which include new beers tapped weekly and sometimes daily. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. I am interested to check it out next time I am in town. Cheers!

There is nothing wrong with this place. It is just not my style. They have a lot of taps. It is much more Belgian and German focused than most chains. The menu is horrible because the draft and bottle list are intermingled. Crazy confusing to read and sort through. The staff surprisingly knew their beer very well. (I say surprising because it looked like they hired some bimbos to pour beer, but all of the servers had great knowledge of their list). I hear their events are cool. This place feels like a factory, but it’s the best sort of downtown beer factory that I’ve been to. If you want to see the real beer scene of KC, head down to Westport. There's a lot of small children and families here. Not my thing.
