This place was just rebuilt, and itís now a shiny and modern store with a fairly big beer selection. Stuff was well organized. Solid selection of local and regional stuff with a decent dose of Belgian, Germans, etc. Very convenient to Wesport, easy to hit while youíre exploring the Foundry, the Green Room. Having a good beer store here really makes Westport a much better beer destination that downtown KC, imho.
Stopped by, midday Thursday. Selection is less than Lukas KC or Royal 103rd (as of Feb 2008) though it still is fairly representative of what is locally available. Well above average selection for a beer store. Maybe more convenient for folks traveling to town compared to the places down south. One drawback is no mix a six offered. Service was good the day I was in, though Mark (beer manager) was not in. They helped me locate a beer that wasnít on the floor yet. As mentioned by others, this is not a clean store - inside or out.
Best of the three Gomerís I have visited. Not the biggest selection in KC, but decent. Clean store and well organized. Staff was friendly. Seemed to be very busy. Prices were good. If you are in this part of town you should stop in.
Recently rebuilt and bigger than the previous store. Pretty good selection, a good amount of bombers and 6-packs. This is the only liquor store I have found in the closeby vicinity to Westport/Plaza that has a good beer selection. I tend to like going to Royal Liquors on State Line more, because they have a little better selection, but I go here quite a bit because it is so close to my apartment.
After reading afattyís comment that it was the best selection he found in KC, I expected so much more. This is a small store, with a clear emphasis on good beer, but without the shelf space to have stand out selection. They do not split up 6-packs, but owner Mark at least was willing to mix 3 different Schlafly six-packs so that I could at least try 3 different brews without having to buy a whole 6-pack on it. He also pulled out some obscure OíFallon brews from the back for me. I also picked up a bottle of the JW Lees 2001 vintage. Other than that, his selection of Schlafly was much more limited than at Royal Liquor and virtually everything else I could get back at home. I went trying to pick up singles from local brewers and frankly came away disappointed. I realize that for some stores shelf space is an issue, and that beer geeks may not be the bread and butter clientele, but I have to believe it wouldnít be that difficult to always have 1 six-packís worth of selected beers displayed as singles. Other stores do it and are very successful with it.
Checked this place out after the Foundry since it was so close. Not a ton of craft beer, but what they did have was decent. Not a destination, but serviceable if you are in town for business nearby and want to take something back to your hotel. Odd that they had a singles section where you had to buy 6 and it was not really that big of a selection.
Pretty nice selection with fair prices. I was able to find a few new goodies here. I was happy to see that the beer seems to be at least a little tucked away from major light sources. Not great looking, but that isnít why you visit a beer store. Certainly worth a stop if in the downtown area, but did not seem to have as much as the south side KC stores.
Basically a big liquor store with a pretty good selection of beers - both American micro and import. Some of your usual suspects for good beer, but also a few I have not seen before. Worth checking out if you are in the area. Seemed to be fairly reasonably priced.
