Cool place with a nice vibe. Beer needs a little work as the IPAs were mediocre. Pale Ale was good though. I’d definitely try the place again. Love the laid back atmosphere and the sci-fi theme.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, not very crowded. It was a little dark inside so it took a few moments for the eyes to adjust. A little more outside light would have been nice. We were sitting at our table trying to decide what to try, the bartender came over to our table and asked if we had any questions. She spent some time with us explaining the various beers, about 9 of their own, which was really cool. There were a couple I question the style, but overall not bad. No food to speak of, a smaller tasting room, and a little dark. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

This tasting room is a bit odd, with a horror movie theme, including movie posters and Friday the 13th playing on a projector screen in the corner. The dark paint makes the place feel dank and uncomfortable. There is a nice little game room off to the side, an odd match with the rest of the place. We tried two of their eight or so beers on tap, and neither were very good unfortunately, both with subtle flaws and overly buttery characters. I’d give the place another shot if given the opportunity though. Brewery #695.

A nice up and coming small brewery in 2014. Cozy, with a horror movie ambiance. Beers are pretty decent and they have a nice selection.

A nice tasting room that is not well marked but worth a stop. A few TVs and lots of high tables in the one room tasting area. Happy to give tours and knowledgeable about the beers. Pretzels were available for free which was a nice touch. Prices were nice and even a few wines and liquors available for those who don’t like beer. Worth a stop combined with Cinder Block just to the north!

Big Rip has been open for approximately 3 months now. They are the first new brewery in Kansas City in the 3 1/2 years since I have been living here (unless you include Green Room, which will only have 1 beer on tap on occasion, or Doodle, which mysteriously disappeared after releasing 1 bottled beer). Visited on a Saturday afternoon. The place was almost empty, probably only 5 other patrons there. They have pints, growlers, or 5-beer taster trays available. 6 beers were on tap when I visited. All were decent, but some were pretty light bodied for my taste. I think they are still trying to work on their beers, so I look forward to coming back. The location is in an industrial part of Kansas City, just north of the river from downtown Kansas City. The tasting room is relatively small, seating around 30 people, but nice and clean. My one qualm about the tasting room is that there is no windows, sort of dark, and it kind of feels like you’re in an industrial building. All in all, a decent place to check out if you’re in Kansas City.

Visited at the same time as the previous review. Can tell that these folks are serious about their beers. Looking forward to see what the future brings. It should be a success. Nice location and nice facility.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon for beastiefan2k’s leaving KC party. HUGE THANKS to the Big Rip folks for accommodating our group. very cool. Easy place to find, just across the bridge from the River Market area of downtown Kansas City. Small, well designed tasting room. At the time of visit, they had 7-8 of their beers on, available as tasters or full pints. No food, though you are welcome to bring your own in. The brewery equipment is visible through a window. I only had a couple of the beers, so will add more of a review when I revisit with a focus on Big Rip beers.

70 = ★★˝ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.
