The Wichita Brewing Company is a very welcome addition to the Wichita beer scene. These guys are new at this but have their priorities straight, and I think they'll be around for a long time.
I've had a chance to try all their beers, and even though I admit to being a bit of an obsessive hophead, I think that all their beers, even the wheat, are pretty damn good. The wheat has this amazing citrus character that's really refreshing. The vanilla porter has a lot of depth and is a great dessert (or with their s'mores pizza). I was most surprised by their 5:02 amber ale, which even though it's balanced, is really interesting and delicious. Their Belgian Pale Ale is pretty popular, but of course it's the IPA that I order over and over again. Personally, I would like it a touch drier and with more hops, but there's not too many beers I've had that I wouldn't add more hops to.
The food is great. These guys are really committed to quality and it shows. Everything has been carefully selected or made in house. Of course, you must try their pizza's the first few times you go there. But tonight, I had their grilled cheese- with turkey, salami, capicola ham and your choice of cheese (I did mozzarella) on your choice of bread (I did sourdough). Delicious! It came with my choice of chips, and I tried beer chips, which were good, but a bit too sweet for me. Oh, and the cream cheese stuffed jalapenos with bacon were delightful.
They've already worked out some issues that were a bit annoying at first- mostly the loud atmosphere and the fact that it was like 90 degrees in there the first couple weeks. I'm looking forward to them introducing some seasonal beers and expanding their guest tap list.
Overall, this is a great new place, and I hope the good people of Wichita continue to support them even after the new-ness has worn off.

I'll be honest and say ill enjoy here just for not being river city brewery.
The food is simple, pizzas and sandwiches; but they do them well.
The beers are pretty good, especially since they've only been open for a year or two.
Service isn't bad, I had a waiter who had just finished finals so his brain was a little fried but I can't hold that against the place.
They had special firkins for Craft Beer Week which was great to see.
