First let me get the negative out of the way. Parking. Not being from Kansas City, parking seemed to be an issue if the place was to be really crowded.
Service was great, the bartender was very helpful with our food and beer selections. My wife and I both got a few 4 ounce pours which is very helpful so we can try multiple beers without getting sloshed. There was almost 30 beers on tap, with two dedicated taps, one for a sessionable beer and one for a sour ale which I appreciated. I was also able to pick up a few bottles to bring back home, for instance Boulevard Love Child #4.
I visit Kansas City every summer and I have found a spot that I will check out every year.

Stopped in here while in KC for a wedding. Great selection, picked up some Founders Imperial Stout, Prairie Artisan Prairie Ale, Southern Tier Creme Brulee, and a few others. The guy working there was very helpful, and friendly with my kids. He also knew the breweries they were selling well, the times of certain releases, and whether or not they got any "white whale" beers from the area (Prairie Bomb!) which makes a huge difference when you're trying to find specific things. I will definitely stop by again in the future when I have the chance.

Bier station does a great job with their taps and selection, and the owner is often on site pouring drinks and lives in the neighborhood. Very kid-friendly, with board games and an open air bier garden upstairs, and small patio out front. Parking is not great, but lots of street parking available and you can use the lot next door on weekends and after 5 PM.
The service is pretty spotty (John, the owner is by far the best bartender in the place). Food selection is average and really only an option for me if you just need a bite to sober up. The beer selection is the draw, and where they excel. About 30 taps, and they all have real beer with good quality rotating selections. You can drink any bottle in-store, or take it to go. A bit of a markup for opening bottles on site vs. carryout. Overall, highly recommended for anyone who appreciates good beer either locally or for a KC visit.
