Beautiful brewpub centrally located in the Westport district of Kansas City. The only pub I know of that has a ’cigar lounge’. Keith, the brewer, does an excellent job of maintaining a variety of beers on tap (6 or 7). His GABF award winning ’Ginger Shandy’ is to die for.
Defintely dug this spot. The house brews were great, and they were running a deal on pitchers when we were hanging out on a Monday afternoon. The beer garden out front is great! They have a really good IPA. Did not eat but the food menu looked like slightly above average pub fare. I would definitely come back here, and to the Westport neighborhood as there is enough to keep Beer Dorks entertained.
McCoy’s Public house is a smallish restaurant in Kansas City’s Westport area. Wait times can be a little hectic, particularly on the weekends, but the food and beer is worth the wait. The Public House usually has quite a bit of their own beer on tap, and that beer is usually quite good. Down home menu choices, such as chicken fried steak, about across a small menu, which I appreciate. My favorite is the spent grain bread with oatmeal stout butter. Overall a fun place to stop by and have a couple of beers.
The second stop of my KC trip. I was interested to discover that the trendy hipster like bar that was attached to McCoy’s was really part of McCoys (called something like the Furnace or something). Anyhow, we went there first. Nice selection of odd ball whiskeys (some items from New Holland for example) and high end liquors. A very fine tap selection that incuded McCoy taps and guest taps, and the real treat was the rare bottle fridge. Pricy but nice selection (Scaba, KBS, etc). The pita and mixed hummas app we got was good. The actual brewery was also nice and we enjoyed a beer at the bar inside. There was also a nice looking deck and bar but it was raining. Overall, very nice beer selection, reasonable wait staff, good atmosphere and good food. A must stop if you are in the area.

Went for a business lunch, so I will need to add the beer rating when I get a chance to sample. However, wanted to review this place because the food was great, and the service was WAY above average. Overall, just a great experience. UPDATE - did a beer sampler, and overall average, to slightly above average brews. Great outdoor porch, family friendly.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
How have I been to Kc and have not rated this place everything about this place screams keep coming back the selection was awesome service was second to none and the food was superb I recommend this plae to anybody visiting KC
Really cool brewpub. I wan’t there too long but I tried a lot of their beers at Foundry the night before. The IPA is great. The deck out front was a nice place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon. Come to this neighborhood if you’re a beer dork. There’s a bunch of things.
They have added more taps recently, and now feature a brown, an IPA, a stout, a light, a rasberry light, a wheat (varies with season) and a shandy. At all times they have at least two seasonals on tap as well. Great place to meet and talk with friends or simply people watch. Brown is superb, as are the seasonal porter, scottish ale and Mai Bock.
Enjoyed the food and beer at McCoy’s this past summer. Was sent to work in Kansas City and came across McCoy’s. Found the staff cheerful and friendly. I found the food good, priced fairly. Espicially enjoyed the Wednesday night special, canjun pasta. Looking to go back in the future.
