Yet another worthy spot in Kansas City for BA worthy beer and decent if not amazing food. We went twice, had assorted fish Tacos each time, enjoyed fresh tasting quality local beer and in general had a good time. Our group of 9 the second time experienced some slow service. Large outdoor space, retro inside with ample tubes to enjoy the game or whatever was on ESPN. Large variety of quality beer offering both on tap and in bottles. Casual, relaxed and decent place for a pint or two, a meal or with a group. Worth a visit.

The Foundry was the last beer stop for my wife and myself in Kansas City (MO and KA). What a cool joint!
Located in Westport, the cool nightlife area in KC, The Foundry is owned by the same guys that manage McCoy's, the microbrewery next door.
The vibe here is cool and mellow on a Saturday evening, not crowded but lively. Great service at the bar, happy chicks eager to please, singing and dancing to the tunes coming out of the stereo system.
An extensive menu, with mostly fried items, burgers, sandwiches and pizzas. We shared a "beer bite" called "Red Rocket"- Kobe beef corndog lollipops, deep-fried and accompanied by tasty sauces. 4 for $7, alright I guess, but Kobe? Not sure...
Price was OK in general, but some specialty beers were outrageous- Southern Tier Javah for $8 and Pannepot for $9. Other than that, I had a sampler of McCoys' own brews. They were mostly alright or mediocre, except for the IPA which was only OK. They do have a variety of brews, though, including a Scotch Ale, DIPA and Oatmeal Stout.
25 taps plus 11 house taps. Some names: Chouffe, Green Flash Hop Red, Southern Javah, Stone Escondidian, Pannepot, Goose Sofia, Nebraska IPA, Stone Smoked Porter, Green Flash Summer Saison, New Belgium La Folie, Boulevard Tank 7.
Lots of young, good-looking guys and girls and great times overall. Will come back next time we're in Kansas City!

This is a pretty cool spot to hang out. They are owned by the same people as McCoy’s and Beer Kitchen across the street. It is actually attached to McCoy’s and serves all their beer. We tried to order a bunch of pony (6oz) size beers to make our own local tasting. Unfortunately, they were out of about half of the special things. It was pretty frustrating because we would tell the server what we wanted, he would come back 4 minutes later and say they were out, we would tell him a replacement, they would be out of that...etc. etc. Our friends ordered food which looked like nice quality pub food. The clientele gets a little douchy later at night. We came back at about 1 in the morning until close, and it is a really great late night hang out place. There’s 4 great beer places to check out right here, so if you like beer, you should visit this neighborhood. The decor is really weird (supper club chic??) but it's fun.

I met another BA down in Westport to give the newest Kansas City beer bar a whirl. This place is located right behind McCoys (and is owned by the same people) and not marked very well. As you walk up, they have a big open patio that you walk through to go inside. When you walk in there is a large bar directly in front of you with about 20 seats and more seating off to your right. I moseyed up to the bar and was quickly served by Ethan (the only male bartender their). The atmosphere is hip/funky and goes along with the whole alternative Westport vibe. They had about 20 or so taps, 60 bottles and a beer engine. I was informed that they had just finished the cask and wouldn't be putting another on until later. Their beer selection was pretty good and definitely the best in the Westport area. Some of the highlights were Golden Carolus, Houblon Chouffe, and Delirium Tremens. The only downside was that they had most of McCoys beers filling up the tap handles. The food was pretty tasty. We split a couple appetizers and they were all excellent. Overall this is a welcomed addition to a ever growing KC beer scene. With a little time, this could grow into one of the better beer bars in the town and will definitely be my go to bar whenever I'm in Westport.

Located on Westport Road, right next store to McCoys Public house. Parking can be a pain, but I was lucky to get a space right across from the door. Have a good selection of local beer on tap, a good selection of Belgium's on tap and a beer engine. What more could you ask for? My only complaint was they have a large patio out front where the smokers hang out and the smoke tends to drift into the bar, because there is nothing separating the two. Enjoyed the McCoys IPA on cask as well as the Boulevard Bully Porter, both were excellent. Worth checking out if you are in the Westport Road area and can find parking.

One of the better beer spots to hit up in KC if you want a great selection and lax atmosphere around happy hour. The rotating taps are pretty decent, but the "cellar" always has some outstanding, very difficult to find bottles. Now, are you willing to swallow the $28 price tag that comes with them is another thing (but still cheaper than the Beer Kitchen across the street on their rare stuff). Always a great place for beer events as well. You can also get a good deal on the Mccoy's beers next door (the brew pub that I believe owns The Foundry).
The food is decent for pub food. Haven't had the pizzas yet, but the burgers are fair. Don't expect to be blown away with the food quality though. The deserts are quite delicious though.
Atmosphere can really vary depending on when you stop by. If you are looking for chilled, laid back setting, I suggest going before 9 on the weekends. Any later than that, they try to turn this great beer stop into a club by removing the tables, blaring the music, and setting up the dance floor. So, if standing sandwiched in a crowd crotch-to-ass and attempting (and failing miserably) to scream over the music to the bartender to order your beer sounds good to you, then I suggest showing up around midnight on Fri/Sat.
