Kansas Craft Beer Week

It's Kansas Craft Beer Week! At least according to some enterprising beer lovers here in the state. With the American Craft Beer Week coming up in less than a month, I can't say that we really need another beer week, but then again I always welcome another excuse to drink beer while thinking about how awesome Kansas is. (It helps when I don't have to drive to Missouri to get my beer too...) Here in town Crawford, the local member of the Kansas Craft Alliance, will be putting on events all over Joco. They're bringing in special kegs, firkins, and pins of Tallgrass, Free State, High Noon, Empyrean, New Belgium, Summit and Odell. You can see the full listing of events in the flier below and they're listed on our blog calendar as well. The tappings on Friday at Barley's on 119th look especially tasty. This is the first year that they've done this event, so let's hope for good things and even more tappings next year.

Ad Cerevisia per Aspera!

  1. Has there been a website/fb page or anywhere I can get info on Kansas City craft beer week? Coming up the weekend of 6/7-6/8 and was wanting to see what was going on.

    1. I don't have any details about the KC Craft Beer Week yet, and don't think there's anything published yet. I'm sure there will be something going on when you're in town though, so check back when the time gets closer.

    1. Yea pretty much :) Although the push seems to really have started down in Wichita and Crawford climbed onto the bandwagon for the KC area also. Hopefully more people will get involved in the future.

  4. What's the point of advertising this as a "Kansas" Craft Beer Week? Only 3 of the breweries listed are from Kansas.
