Martin City Brewing Company

As I write this the last minute scramble is on. Tables are being positioned just so, napkins and silverware are being rolled, food prep is happening, kegs are being tested, beer is being iced. At 11:00 the doors are going to open and a couple of guys, Matt Moore and Chancie Adams, will have fulfilled a dream, the opening of a brewpub.

Martin City Brewing Company (500 E. 135th St., KC, MO) is opening their doors to the general public at 11:00 today. They'll be serving a far south Kansas City need for a great place with great beer. The plan is to eventually brew their own beer, but for now, they're just serving the best selection of beers for that part of town. On tap today will be Stone Arrogant Bastard, Avery White Rascal, Bell's 2 Hearted Ale, Nectar IPA, Lagunitas IPA and Little Sumpin' Sumpin' (they have great taste in beer), 3 Boulevards, Odell 90 Schilling, Anchor Steam and more. They'll have over 50 bottled beers and 20 more big bottles of beer, a good start.

One of the Gents, Matt, is a chef on the line at Martin City Brewing. What I know about Matt is he wouldn't allow the Brewing Company to serve bad food and since he interned with Celina Tio at Julian he knows what's good and what's not. Some menu items that excite me are fried risotto balls and a shrimp po' boy. Combine a great menu with a great beer menu and you have a real reason to make Martin City Brewing Company a destination. Give them some love and business this weekend.
