Craft Beer Festival

Beer KC (the troika of Beer Kitchen, McCoy's and The Foundry) are holding their own craft beer festival with 19 breweries available. Each brewery will be bringing one year round and one seasonal or limited beer for your consumption. Some of the confirmed beers are:
Ommegang Belgian Pale Ale and GnomegangSchlafly American IPA and Biere De Garde
75th Street Easy ESB, White Tie Belgian Wit
Free State Copper Head and a Firkin of something...
Tallgrass will bring a Firkin...and something else
Goose Island Matilda and Fleur
Ska Modus Hoperandi and Barrel Aged Nefarious
Bell's Oberon, Double Cream Stout, and Cherry Stout
The dealio will be held in the little McCoy's parking lot you always dream of parking in every trip to Westport. Because of the small space and noted girth of many a beer afficionado, only 500 tickets will be sold. Tickets are $25 each and includes a commemorative tasting glass. Part of the proceeds will benefit AIDS Walk KC. You can get tickets at any of the Beer KC troika locations. The festival happens on Saturday, June 4th from 1-4.

  1. I love how quickly the beer scene is growing here, but the number of tastings and festivals is getting mind-boggling.

    Not that I won't be there.
