I love the atmosphere of this place. Rustic, with lots of natural wood and exposed beams, etc. It's a casual place with a flair to fit their massive beer menu and their interesting selection of food pairings.

As I said, they have an extensive beer list--a beer-only menu is headed up by a list of rotating tap beers. Some of the variety I've sampled from their taps include Green Flash's Friendship Brew, Ommegang's Biere D'Hougoumont and North Coast's Le Merle. But if you don't find something appealing on the tap beers, there are several pages of beers, divided by the "experience" of the beer:

CRISP (delicate fruits)
CRISP (subtle hoppiness)
HOP (herbal and citric)
HOP (earthy and dry)
MALT (rich and toasty)
MALT (stiff and sweet)
ROASTED (dark and creamy)
SOUR (wild, tart and funky)
FRUIT (tart and tangy)

While I don't agree with all of their classifications, it's certainly helpful to guide your experience, or to aid someone new to the wide variety of beer styles and flavors.

I've only sampled a couple of food items: both the chicken pâté and the Hogtied sandwich are outstanding. They also have excellent "Belgian-style" fries with a host of fancy dipping sauces.

As in other comments about this place it is super pricey. Tons of different bottles to choose from so there is something for everyone. Nice stuff on tap as well. Service was dissapointing and we felt very out of place. Have kind of a redneck family and this place was more of a hipster crowd. Price on Abraxas was $37 and printemps was $29 so bring money if you want to drink the fancier stuff. Overall a must visit if passing by though

Possibly the best beer selection of any restaurant in KC. Some fantastic bottles that are hard to find at local stores- Abraxas, Parabola, Loons, etc. But expect your wallet to take a hit. They are proud of their selection and aren't afraid to rape you on the price. Abraxas is $17 if you can find it around town, but $41 here.

Nice chilled atmosphere. Good beer drinking can take place without the TVs or music being overbearing. Service is solid. Some of the staff seem to know their craft beer, others do not.

Burgers are fantastic. Simply some of the best in town. Fries...oh yeah. You will pay $15 for a burger and fries, but you will walk away quite satisfied with the quality.
