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.
A good selection of taps with half pours available, so that’s a nice touch. The ambiance is decent with some good music, but that’s a matter of opinion. The food I tried was quite good (TNT Tuna Tacos) but looked to be fairly standard. A good place to have some McCoy’s beers with a far better selection of other breweries than McCoy’s.
Nice little local bar in Westport. Didn’t get any food, but looks like pretty basic bar food. Beer selection is good - about 40 or so taps, plus a bunch more bottle. American micros to imports, and a handful of beers from McCoys, next door.
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.
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.
Solid place - huge patio with a bar that completely opens up to it. Was there on a perfect spring night and it was amazing. Decent beer selection - nice vbariety of about 20 taps plus the house taps. A decent beer "cellar" locked on the floor, but nothing amazing. Good food - the beer pretels were amazeballs. Service was fine, but nothing to get excited about, regular restaurant/bar service. I would go back, though...for sure.
Been here many times while leaving in KS. This is owned by the same people that own McCoy’s and the beer place across the street. So, its a good visit b/c you have 3 beer places all in one spot (and also the Riot Room close by). Foundry is particularly cool b/c you could walk b/w there and McCoy’s without stepping outside, so more beer choices. They usually have a few McCoy’s brews on tap and a mix other other. I have always found something worthwhile to drink. Sometimes they get a more special keg. But general selection is good. They often have lots of Belgians. Their biggest downside is prices can be high, especially anything imported. Bar services has always been prompt and polite. Food is above average pub fare, good apps. Ambiance is nice, while still seems like a corporate design at least they try. If you had to visit one place in KC I would recommend either Westport or Waldo.
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!
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.
