Well if you have ever been to a Flying Saucer anywhere in the country, you know this is the place to go for beer in that city. They bring in almost every available beer in the area. They have about 65 beers on tap at any given time and over 200 bottles. The tap selection rotates seasonally and the bottle selection is refreshed when new stuff is available. They do a lot off cool stuff weekly like rare beer night, trivia night, and brewery night where you buy the cup and keep it. The UFO club is a good way to keep track of the beers you've tried. One of the most surprising things about the flying saucer is the good. I would say that it is good food no matter where you are at, and combined with the beer it is great food. The wife who is not a huge beer drinker likes to come for the food so be both leave happy. Keep an eye on their calendar because they post any of the special things there such as Barley wine week or their anniversary party. Overall you cannot beat this place for beer in KC

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.
