Cheer on the USMNT in the World Cup at McCoy's

McCoy's will be opening early today for the US vs Germany match in the World Cup. The match starts at 11, we'll open our doors at 10:30, so that gives you a little bit of time to print off the permission slip below.

To make it even sweeter, we'll have free pints after ever US goal!

World Cup and beer bottles a'plenty!

Want a perfect combo for watching the USMNT play Portugal in the World Cup on Sunday? Head to McCoy's and grab a house brew, or go to Foundry and get a bottle of Boulevard's Championship Ale, brewed for Sporting Kansas City's MLS championship!

Or if you're looking for something to pucker your lips, Foundry has bottles Love Child #4 available. There are a couple other bottles of tart beer too - Grassroots Arctic Soiree is a nice one from a collaboration between Anchorage and Hill Farmstead, and Justin Blaeber is a delicious blueberry Berliner Weisse from Evil Twin. Or compare and contrast between a bottle and a draft pour of Zwet.be wild porter from 3 Fonteinen. Get funky!

Also at the Foundry, you'll find a nice collection of cool stuff from Stone Brewing. Vertical Epic 11.11.11 is on tap now, with a few years of age on it. Then in the beer cooler you'll find Crime, Punishment, and Collective Distortion - a rockin' collaborative Double IPA.

Help Beer KC celebrate Kansas City Craft Beer Week

Kansas City Craft Beer Week continues! It kicked off with a great time at the Westport Beer Festival, and continues throughout the week with events at Beer KC restaurants!

Now tomorrow, Wednesday June 11, Cambridge Brewing Company's brewmaster Will Meyers will be at Beer Kitchen with some of his fantastic beer. Cambridge and Boulevard will combine to take over the taps at Beer Kitchen from 4-6 pm. Drink some rare beers from each brewery and meet the people behind the beers.

You'll get another chance to meet a brewery executive when Odell Brewing Company founder Doug Odell comes to the Foundry with some beer - a keg of Friek and a pin of St. Lupulin with cucumber. Both will be tapped at 4.

And of course, the week concludes with the Boulevardia! General admission tickets for the fest are still available, so get yours today while they last!
