Kansas City's branch of the Flying Saucer chain gets the majority of the city's beer nerd attention, but The Foundry is just as good a beer bar. If not better.

The Foundry has a very open-industrial vibe with various brewerania adorning the walls and cieling. Plenty of tables and booths and a comfortable open area for pool & darts. The bathroom is pretty cozy, with a weird, futuristic communal trough sink located outside of the bathroom doors. It's biggest atmospheric benefits, though, are the bar and patio. The Foundry has a lovely open patio with plenty of tables. The bar is not horizontal but rectangular, a sort of peninsula, with the bartender able to serve all 3 sides of the bar. The bartenders I've had have been very knowledgeable and go out of their way to make the experience great for beer nerds.

The Foundry has a deep bottle selection, but for me its all about the taps. There's about 20 taps (not counting all of the beers from the adjoining McCoy's brewpub) and there are very few taps dedicated to non-nerdy options. On Wednesday, The Foundry had amongst its draught options: Goose Island Bourbon County Brand VANILLA Stout, Firestone Walker 14th Anniversary Ale, Stone Double Bastard, Dieu de Ciel Rosee d'Hibiscus, Houblon Chouffe, Avery Majaraja, and Southern Tier Cuvee 3, amongst many others. Plus, McCoy's beers are often fine choices too. You will not want for lovely beers at this bar.
