Really well designed and laid out small taproom. The taproom is really a 60'x50'x30' triangle, so not too big. The mirror behind the bar gives it a much bigger feel. Tap list is easy to read and current. A little fridge in the corner displays all the available bottles for consumption or to take-home. Lots of great beers on tap, some of which were only bottled once, some were never bottled at all. Current tap lists are available on each table as well. Proper glassware is used, with teku used for the more expensive pours. A few locally produced hard liquors are also available. Some goldfish and pretzel snacks are available, otherwise there is a BBQ food truck around a few nights a week. Just make sure to call first, since the website isn't 100% accurate. Live edge, wooden tables, and a 30 or 40 foot live-edge bar give it an earthy feel. Only artwork on the walls are simplified canvas prints of the origami on Crane's beer labels. Seating area is packed full of regular 4-chair tables, and a couple high tables with 6 seats. The bar features its own seats as well. Staff is knowledgeable and quick to provide service. Location is near the city, and also links well with the suburbs, but is a little off the beaten path - it's in a sort of industrial alley with a gravel parking lot. Definitely a great place to visit while in KC, or to visit once a week for locals. Great experience.

the beer these guys are making is incredible, and they finally put a taproom together. its a little minimalist at the moment, but they are working on a a new one on the other side of the building from what i understand. for now its some tables and chairs and a tiny bar with only a few seats, but its all about the beer in here, definitely some of the best i have had around the midwest. they have a nice range of very good and interesting sours, the dry hopped grapefruit gose was divine, and the tea weisse was a curious tea infused berliner that was awesome. other styles like oat based saison and porter were available as well, and the dude behind the bar was real cool to chat with. the quality of the beer is next level, and thats really what its all about. a little out of the way from kansas city proper, but well worth the effort to get out here for some of the more unique offerings that have not made it to bottle yet. huge fan of these guys, and thinking they well be on every beer nerds radar before too long if they keep it up!
