America's Best Beer Cities: Kansas City

Ann Shields

No. 5 Kansas City, MO

Local favorite Boulevard Brewing Co. is now the nation’s 10th largest craft brewer and—despite the city’s ho-hum ranking for romance—recently introduced a barrel-aged “sour” ale called Love Child No. 3. In the city’s historic Westport neighborhood, you’ll find McCoy’s, which has a following for its ginger shandy and raspberry wheat and does regular tasting nights. Other enticements for down-to-earth beer fans: Kansas City won the survey for its barbecue and for being affordable.
