Holy cow, great place. Although you can get here from McCoy’s without going outside, the atmosphere is a million times better. Draft list is solid, with everything available in six ounce ir full pours. Great bittle list, from near and far. Didn’t try the food cause I ate at McCoy’s, but I wish I had eaten here.

Visited on Saturday night, fairly early in mid-November as well as December 6th. In addition to 5-6 McCoy taps, they have a very nice beer list with some nice rotators in seasonals. St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap was nice. I would put the selection right up there with Flying Saucer and Grinders. On the last visit, I had a New Belgian Le Fluer. Food is also quite tasty, I had the TNT Tacos and a Burger. Both were unique, and well above average bar food. The space is self is sort of an industrial modern, though with comfortable booths and a nice open horseshoe bar. It was fairly quiet, though I have heard it gets pretty busy with DJs and what not later in the evening. Service was excellent both visits, and the bartender is one of the best I have ever seen. Certainly worth a visit, and if you only have time to hit McCoys or the Foundry, I would probably hit the Foundry. If you are local, and have time for both, certainly hit both.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

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

Attached to McCoy’s and probably same owners as Beer Kitchen across the street. These three bars make the Westport trendy neighborhood the place to be for beer in KC. Foundry has a trendier, modern atmosphere. Larger, varied tap list compared to its peers. Better food than the typical pub far at McCoy’s next door. And it has some of the low quality McCoy’s house beers on tap just not as many as the brewpub side. Foundry offers tasters whereas the McCoy side seems to not know what a taster means. Fun place. Still, I liked Beer Kitchen even better.

Popped in the Foundry during a Deschutes event while we were in KC for the weekend. Just had a beer, but it was a good one- the Black Butte XXIV. The atmosphere is great- low-lit, cool signage, steel/iron fixtures. Hard to describe, but my favorite atmosphere of the places we went in KC. Great neighborhood, too. A door opens to McCoy’s, which we only walked through. They share ownership, from what I can tell. The staff here was solid; busy at the time but accommodating. The beer was a little on the expensive side for KC but they had some real gems. The bottle selection is worth checking out; I saw a Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown in there, among other nice stuff from all over the place. Definitely worth a visit while in KC.

A bit of a gritty restaurant/beer bar north of the plaza. Service was a slow and I was continually given out of date beer menus that made ordering beers quite difficult. Furthermore server was not familiar with the beers at all. Food was alright and prices were a touch high. I left disappointed.

Modern garage-cool bar with young crowd and plenty of tattoos. Beer list is all over the map in an interesting way, overcoming reliance on the sister brewpub next door. Barman seemed to know his stuff. Tasty, stylish, overpriced nibbles. Beers were a bit pricey too, we thought, but a fun place to drink, especially if living or staying nearby.

I would probably put The Foundry as the 2nd best bar for beer in Kansas City, behind Flying Saucer. Around 32 beers on tap, the selection rotates pretty often. They will also have McCoy’s beers on tap (from McCoy’s next door). Good selection, good atmosphere.

Nice place to visit for a beer. Totallyi different from the McCoys next door (same ownership). The half pours are a nice feature. Good selection of taps and bottles. A must visit.

Stopped in while in KC for work and things got off to an interesting start. Apparently I entered the parking lot the wrong way and took some dude’s spot. We both walked in together and he made it a point to mention that to me. Oops, my bad, hahaha. Seemed like a cool joint. Beers on tap and in bottles were solid. Samples of the Mccoy’s beers for $4 was awesome. Service was solid and food was pretty good. I would come back for sure.
