    Our waitress knew her stuff & offered suggestions & samples. Try the beer flights! Also you can't go wrong with the "Reuben-esque" sandwich. THE BEST!! Go w a side salad & house dressing (kinda spicy)

    Great beer selection and knowledgable bartenders. Some solid food options. Flying Saucer has done a good job making a good name for itself in a district where that is a challenge.

    It's about the beer. Nearly unmatched beer selection, always rotating. Make your own beer flight. 🍻 Nice space to sit and have a few inside or on the patio. Dart boards in the back.

    Cool place, awesome beer selection. You an taste about anything and the staff actually tastes the beer before they start serving it. Very friendly staff and people as well.

    The amazingly knowledgeable staff are the best. It's comforting to know that North Coast's Old Rasputin is always on tap. Did I mention that they have the best trivia in KC on Tuesdays.

    Great bar, amazing beer selection, best wait staff, and if you want to go to p&l but avoid the main crowd, this place doesn't open into the courtyard

    Another place I can't say enough good things about. The staff knows the beer better than anyone. Just ask for a recommendation, 9 times out of 10, you'll like what they recommend.

    The mustard that comes with the pretzel and brats is crazy delicious. For real, ask for a side of it; you will be so glad you did.

    A real fan favorite in the P&L District, this place gets props for a big beer list and awesome Tuesday trivia.

    Try the Goose Island Pepe Nero peppered saison on draft. Phenomenal beer with a great peppercorn note. A little unorthodox but isn't overpowering at all.

    If you see a beer on tap you are curious about just ask for a taste. Great way to help you decide with so many options available.
  • Kristin H.
    They featured the Schlafly Variant Stout which was as dark and spicy as it was smooth. So delicious.

    Try the beer cheese soup! It's well priced at 4.99 and comes in a delicious bread bowl. Word of warning, the soup has a little spice to it like most items here. Excellent!

    One of the best tap lists in KC. Mediocre food (but they seem to be trying to improve). Can get very crowded after work or before a music or sporting event.

    Sure they've got 74 beers on tap and over 200 on the menu, but the food is crazy good! Try their wildly popular Saucer Bratzel.

    Go on Mondays for pint night. $2.75 for a lot of the beers they have on tap. Also make sure you try their pretzels. They are AMAZING.

    It's not on the menu, and it's not listed on the blackboard, but order a pint of the Schlafly Coffee Stout. It's delicious!

    Avoid the beer cheese soup at all costs. It tastes like nasty watered down queso and comes in a giant bread bowl that the menu fails to mention.
