Weekly Bar Buzz

I don't know about you guys, but last Tuesday really put All Star Pizza on the map for me. Their Deschutes event was a huge success as the place was packed with an eager crowd. The pizza was great (I had some sort of avocado, chorizo, sriracha pie that really hit the spot) and the draft selection was outstanding (even without all the Deschutes beer). As a South KC resident, I don't make it to Parkville too often and I had never been to All Star Pizza before. But if I lived North of the river, I imagine I would be spending many a night with Grant and the gang. They have finalized the date for their Avery Angels and Demons event (details below) and it looks like they are committed to being a player in KC's craft beer scene. Its great to see more places making this kind of commitment to better beer, that's one of the reasons now is such a great time to be a beer drinker in KC. But enough with that, here are your upcoming beer events:

***Keep an eye out for bottles of Nebraska Brewing Apricot Au Poivre Saison this week as well as Bell's Hopslam on draft***
