taps are well maintained. great rotation of beers. some rare stuff, some out of region stuff, good internationals. have never had to order a bottle from here or a mccoys brewery beer, not that they are bad. im poor and if im going out, i try to go here based on selection.

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.

While places in Power and Light get all the publicity, I still like the hole-in-the wall chic of the Foundry in Westport. They have a tremendous selection of craft beer, both on tap and in bottles, with lots of rarities and unique choices. The food menu and choices are all inspired. Overall it’s one of my favorite places to stop when I’m in KC.

Great place to get craft beer and good food. They even have their in-house micro-brews that are way better than expected. Micro-brews are $3 after 10pm. Awesome

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.

Have visited a few times so far this year. Has a very choice selection of taps, about 20-25 draft beers, but this is sure to be what is new, fresh and hip in the craft beer scene. Very large selection of bottles as well, from all styles. Food selection is fairly wide, for the type of place that it is, there are a lot of appetizer-y things but other stuff like salads, pizza, sandwiches, etc. Sort of retro, blue-collar, workaday vibe, but overall is my personal favorite beer bar in KC. They may not have as many taps as Flying Saucer, but as I mentioned, the taps they do have are extremely well-chosen, and I like the scene a heck of a lot better than Power & Light. If you are planning on hitting up McCoy’s while in KC, do yourself a favor and head to the Foundry as well, you’ll be glad you did.

After wasting my time at McCoys, this place made me smile again.. Had alot of the McCoy beers, and a kickass tap section of other micros with a cool little bottle section too.. really enjoyable food, weed plants growing outside, and the hippest bathrooms in history.. . friendly staff, unique atmosphere and across the street from beer kitchen, what else could you want!

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.
