Neat spot right in the thick of the Westport neighborhood. It has the feel of a hotel bar, 360 degree bar, with probably twelve or more beers pouring. Odd scene on a Friday night, with a mix of beer people and going out type folks dressed up and not at all there for the beers. Apparently there is a club of some kind attached, and there is obviously some spillover. Made for an interesting vibe, good people watching and much more quiet than other places on the street, which I welcomed. I had the good farmhouse, and it was just that, good. Tropical notes and a lot if body, fun yeast, very alive. Other beers looked moderately less interesting, but everyone in our group enjoyed what they ordered. Bartender Ricardo was super nice, very inviting, appreciated his hospitality. I'd go back but maybe not on a weekend night, seems more suited to a daytime than a late night crowd. Beers were tasty though for sure, just didn't seem to be their only focus...

edit: this place keeps getting better, somehow seems more charming each time i go in. some of the better bar food around (for real!) and the beers are great. ursa minor brown is one of the best out, and they have nailed other basic styles too. do not overlook this place when visiting kansas city, its become one of my favorites there!

On a trip to KC with my family, we stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy, but the staff was friendly and prompt. The food was excellent...I had a Mac and cheese with much rooms, asparagus, and cauliflower. The beer selection was varied, with a berlinner Weiss that was outstanding. The feel is pub like, and inviting. Lots of young people, but it still felt comfortable with kids.

Visited with my family over spring break.

Liked the pub atmosphere on the dining side. Seemed family friendly

Beers were alright, none of them were any I buy again

Service was attentive, prompt friendly

6 different kind of beers on offer, not that many, The coffee stout & quad were the most exotic

Food was goo not great, standard pub fare

An alright place, but I see no compelling reason to go back

I have much love for McCoy's because it is where I got my start in the beer world.
Upon returning some years later, I can tell they are really in the groove. Pumping out some pretty excellent and unique beers that have developed and improved over time. Staff has good beer knowledge, and a line-up of veteran bartenders is there to answer the "beer nerd" questions.

Stopped by while we were in KC, and man was it worth it. They have standout food, and their beers were very good. I had the Good Farmhouse, sampled just about everything else, and was not disappointed. Waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. Great place to stop by if you're in the area.

Really cool brewpub. I wan’t there too long but I tried a lot of their beers at Foundry the night before. The IPA is great. The deck out front was a nice place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon. Come to this neighborhood if you’re a beer dork. There’s a bunch of interesting beer places (two more of them owned by the same group as McCoy's).

Went here to watch some football and drink some beers. It's a nicer bar and well maintained.

The beer's were good, the food was also good. The menu is geared toward foodies. I don't know what a sofrito is. Corn chips? But once I got past the menu the food was good.

The waiter at our table was knowlegable about the beers on tap and was helpful in describing the seasonal and cask offerings.

There were around 8 beers. From pedestrian gateway beers, like wheat and ginger, to the full blown craziness, of a cask russian imperial stout aged with cinnamon, cloves and cranberries.
