On our beer-centric trip of KC, we headed over to the Westport District for dinner and a beer. Since our friend Nick has been working at McCoy's Public House in Minnesota, I figured we should stop by their primary brewpub site right there walking distance from our hotel. The brewpub is located near The Foundry and Beer Kitchen (also owned by the same people, but not brewpubs,) in a really fun and active neighborhood. The bar and restaurant are inviting and hopping, with multiple levels of action, as well as an outdoor seating area with accessory bar. We had an excellent bartender who served us up a sampler of the house brews.

How shall I say this...The beer wasn't good. Per my wonderful wife, "The brown ale smells like lakewater." And tasted like it as well. The maibock was not too bad, but most of these beers had flaws that I rarely see at commercial breweries nowadays. If the food is anything like our MN site, I can recommend it, but we didn't have any room left to try it during this trip. I'm happy that McCoy's in Minnesota has moved to just commercial beers. I was hoping that the beers would be better based on some of the other reviews I've seen here, so I just wanted to send this out as a bit of a warning...

Beer selection is good, they have some different seasonal selections that are interesting to try. There Oatmeal stout is very good with a nice creamy head and a very smooth roasted flavor, this is my favorite. My wife really likes the raspberry wheat and the unfiltered wheat, both very good beers.

The last time I was there i tried the Double IPA @ 11% brewed with honey. It was a little "hot" tasting for my taste. I think it could use a few months of aging but i am no expert.

I have never been disappointed with the food. I have ordered sandwiches, burgers, and there Mac and Cheese which people rave about.

I've been here twice now, one year apart.

The beer was a LOT better the first time I went... then again it may be due to my palate changing. Not sure. It's still the best brewpub in town. Growlers are available. My favorite beer was the Brown, while my wife preferred the Imperial Stout.

The burgers are excellent... which is why I've never gotten anything else. My wife loves the Moroccan Stir-Fry.

Get the peanut butter ice cream. You will love it. It comes in these ice cream sandwich deals... with brownies as the 'bread'... but they pale in comparison to the PB Ice Cream.

I stayed down the street from McCoys, it was recommended by a few folks. They had 9 beers on tap and a brown ale on Cask. I had the IPA and the Brown, both were excellent. I had also had the Triple B, their Anniversary Ale, which was out standing-but strong. They have a friendly & knowledgeable staff. I was there on Monday night: $6 burgers, $6 pizzas and $2.75 pints NICE!!!
I had the Taco pizza which was not on the menu but , my bartender mentioned. I also had the Caesar salad, the dressing tasted homemade-very good. Everyone in KC seems to offer spent grain bread. I was more places back home did.

Located in the Westport nightlife district of Kansas City, McCoy’s is a comfortable public house with a nice outside deck and a plush cigar room. There is a central bar area with adjacent tall tables next to the brewing room. We stopped in before noon and just wanted a break from the drive. There were 10 house brews on tap so I had a Hogpound Brown and a Bitter Ale on cask to get the day’s tasting underway. There are booths and additional tables for dining. We weren’t ready for lunch which is too bad because the pizza and sandwich selections looked terrific. Because we were early, we found parking on the street but I expect nearby pay lots would be the norm.
