As with all restaurants at the KC airport, this location is outside of gate security, so plan your visit accordingly. Additionally, Terminal A, B and C are not connected, Terminal B can only be accessed by foot (~5 min walk) or by a shuttle bus that runs every 5-10 minutes between terminals. The Boulevard involvement here is quite limited, really just 4 regular beers on tap, perhaps a smokestack or two in bottle (selection has varied quite a bit). Food is typical airport fare, service can vary greatly. Overall, typical airport bar with food and a limited focus on Boulevard beers. Probably the best option for beer at KCI, though thatís not saying much at all.

Been here a few times throughout 2011 so might as well rate it. Not much other than Boulevard available, food is typical airport bar food, service is slow and the bar is usually pretty loud. Having said all that, this is the best option in the KC airport so if you are waiting for your flight stop in.

(Visited 06/2011): Boulevardís MCI bar is in Terminal B by gate 56.
The place is pretty small which is standard for airport bars/restaurants. Short bar and a few tables, and TVs to watch.
As for beer selection, there are 4 Boulevard beers on draught (Unfiltered Wheat, Pale Ale etc) plus a couple of the typical macros. The bottled selection consists of mostly domestic macros plus 2 Boulevard beers.
Service was decent on a weekday early evening. I do not go to an airport bar, even one based on a craft brewery with high expectations. The bartender was friendly and attentive and that is good enough for me.
I did not try any food on my visit.
Overall I maintain an "any port in a storm" mentality when it comes to finding beer in an airport. Any local/regional microbrewery with representation in an airport makes it worth visiting during a layover in my book.
