Weekly Bar Buzz

By all accounts, last night's Deschutes release party at the Foundry was a kick ass event. If you are like me and missed out, you still have a shot at attending tonight's Deschutes kick off party at All Star Pizza in Parkville. If you are going too, please say hello if you see me. I would love to get to know more of you.

Odell Saboteur Brett Barrel Brown has been popping up in liquor stores and on tap at bars around town. I enjoyed it on tap at Martin City Brewing on Friday night.

The brass from Boulder Beer are in town this week and they brought nitro kegs of Mojo IPA with them. Waldo Pizza and Grinders have events this week featuring their beer as well as specialty menu items like an interesting Mojo IPA ice cream at Grinders.

Also, if you are thinking about enjoying a meal out this weekend, you might want to check out Kansas City Restaurant Week. It gets started this Friday and includes a number of good spots to grab a beer.

Mistakes, omissions, comments?
Let me know.
