A great example of what a gastropub should be.

It was crowded, as would be expected for a Saturday night. I was able to find a bar table close to the door with no wait. Gastropub meets sport bar feel: dark with lots of wood, big rectangular bar, and lots of TVs. Service was very good. The server knew the products, both food and beer, and didn't mind sharing his opinion. OK number of taps (6 to 8) with a decent enough selection (I had a Hop God and Cerise). Better bottle selection, though (50 - 75, maybe). Food selection was excellent (quality and choice), particularly if you're not in the mood for a full entree and can suffice on appetizers and salads. Worth a return trip.

Located in the Westport neighborhood a few miles from downtown.

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.

Went here and KBS was on draft. There are very few taps, but each tap has something special on it. There is also a pretty special bottle cooler. The decor is well thought out. The food here is insane. This should be your meal stop if you are doing any beer touring. The food isn’t expensive, but the beer prices are a bit high. It was wonderful that they had KBS. It was $13 for a healthy ~13 oz pour, so even though the beer prices look high they definitely overpour a bit.

Our friend who lives in town stopped by on his work lunchbreak. He doesn't know much about beer, so he just pointed to our glasses and asked the bartender for a pour of whatever we had. 20 minutes and 2-13 oz pours of KBS for a BMC drinker....hilarious. We tried to warn him.

My wife and I went here for dinner the first night we arrived in KC for a quick vacation. The service was very good. The beer selection was very respectable. The food is very good. So good in fact we came back the next day for lunch, even better. We met the bartender Will who served us a drink he created on his own, absolutely outstanding! We decided to go back a third time for brunch, but there was a 45 minute wait and we had a 5 hour drive ahead of us, so we went to foundry. I recommend anyone in the Kansas City area to visit Beer Kitchen for a drink and brew, its worth the trip!

P.S. - Delicious, juicy, flavorable burgers. Lots of toppings choices , too.
