McCoy's is located in a trendy/Bohemian part of KC. This is probably the first thing I noticed while walking down there from the hotel. There are lots of hippies and 20-something suburbanites hanging out on a Friday night. There are lots of restaurants and bars in the area which seem a bit up-scale but seemingly relaxed for the most part. Of course, I say this to set the scene, as I think it's integral to how McCoy's approaches their business in their given 'micro-market'. As I walk up to the bar and take a look around the restaurant it is apparent that they serve BMC. While I can see some places see this is a market necessity, this is a big minus in my book for vibe. But I suppose it's McCoy's Public House and not 'Brewpub' or 'Brewing Co.', etc.

With respect to the house brews, the IPA and scotch ale were decent, but a bit over-carbonated and not really outstanding.

The service was attentive enough, but didn't really seem to know beer that well or be able to pick up on a customer's tastes.

The food was excellent! My wife and I had some appetizers (spent grain rolls!) and split a pizza. No complaints - great food.

After our dinner we stopped in the cigar bar. The staff didn't know cigars either - oh, well.

Overall, this is a decent enough restaurant bar, but probably not the best 'brewpub'. I don't know, it just felt like a hipster's TGI Friday's with a cigar bar and a brewery in the back. I just didn't at any point in time get the impression that people were there for the beer - like I was.
