Bier Station is a must for the Kansas City beer lovers. We went on a Sunday snow day minutes after they opened, so perhaps didn't get the best evaluation of ambiance since there weren't many people there yet. However, seeing the place slowly fill up over the course of an hour and knowing that there is a rooftop patio, I have no doubt this atmosphere is outstanding on a summer evening.

The beer selection and quality was the best I've experienced in my 2 years in Kansas City, namely, they have a rotating cask ale that provided a phenomenal beer. I was also able to sample a couple new beers and drink well-made beers to my heart's content. I imagine that this place offers about 95% of the legal beers available to Kansas City, MO.

The service is unique in that it is mostly self-service. You go to the bar for any food or drink order, which is great for not having to tip a waiter, but not so great if you don't feel like ambulating a whole lot.

The food is really great. It is a creative and gourmet spin on traditional Bavarian food: varieties of sausage/bratwurst and pretzels, which, when combined with beer, account for my three main food groups. They also have a ton of sauces for pretzels, which is awesome.

Hands down, the best Beer Bar in the state of Missouri. I refuse to go to KC without stopping at Bier Station.

I really liked this place. The draft selection was quite unique and well thought out, with an excellent combination of local, craft and foreign brews. This is a beer enthusiast's destination, and you will not be disappointed. Very laid back, kind of a Bernie Sanders' supporter type crowd ( disillusioned, but mellow and hoping for the best). The pulled pork KC Carolina sandwich was very good and paired well w/the Zipline Smoked Bock that I was drinking. Followed that up with two flights of beers that I've mostly never seen on tap anywhere else. Been to a number of places during my four week stay in KC, and this place was definitely the one that caters to the beerdo in all of us.

Inside is dark, with dark wood floors and dark tinted windows. A bar running the length of the opposite side of the room offers up space for patrons and to order beer; unfortunately, there is no sectioned off area to order beer, making it a bit of a pain on busy nights. A long bar-like bench with high top chairs sits opposite the bar, up against the windows for a quiet, contemplative place to sit. The remainder of the main floor seating is 4-tops and a handful of longer tables with benches. The space faces north, which makes for some nice sun on the exterior patio. Upstairs is an open space with astroturf, garage doors for ventilation in the mild months, and German beer hall style tables and benches. The heating and cooling in this room can be very hit or miss, and stays a little warmer during the hot months of summer. Overall feeling is relaxing. Service is good, but can be a bit slow at times, particularly since the bar staff seem to all be long standing employees with many regular customers returning and chatting. Service is best on slow to medium days. Selection is solid, with a focus on American craft beer, meaning very few imports to select from here. Packaged beer is split about half and half between being sold individually, either for a mix-six pack (individually priced bottles/cans) or for consumption on site, and in packs. The 30 taps offer a wide array of styles and selection, but do tend to center on IPAs generally without fail. Food is quality, especially for the lunch special (most any beer is $4 with the purchase of a meal), but not the reason to make a stop. Specials are available throughout the year as well.

Everything about this place is amazing. Great staff. Great draft selection. Love the option of having 4 oz. pours as well. Amazing prices and an awesome bottle selection for on-site consumption or to-go (though to-go prices are considerably lower). Cool deck area upstairs. This place simultaneously functions as one of the best bottle shops in the area, and being a kick-ass bar. I would really like to get back here some day.

This is one of the best places - ever. I missed this one on my last trip to KC and never again. Great selection of beers from all over, although a bit weak on beers from the West Coast. However, this is an all around great place with a huge selection of bottles and a great tap list.

This is one place that I'll hit each and every time in KC. It's perhaps the only "don't miss" if you have only one place to go.

Large open seating area inside with some outside options, too. I love the beer board that lists details including how much is left in the keg. Selection is strong. The beer to go is nice too, although they did have an old beer hidden in there that I accidentally purchased.

Stopped in during a trip to KC, to find a craft beer bar that seems deceptively larger inside than it appears from without. The tap list was quite decent, and kept updated on a couple large-screen monitors above the bar, complete with little keg gauges to show approximately how much is left of each beer.

Bar staff seemed to really know their beer, and there's a sizeable bottle collection that takes up an entire wall of coolers, either for on-site consumption or as a bottle shop. There's a relatively small and simple food menu, which includes some particularly tasty brats. The crowd is friendly, the atmosphere laid back, the feel much like a comfortable little dive bar.

Would return if ever back in town.
