Bump since I'm visiting Kansas (Manhattan specifically for a conference at KSU, any folks from there on here?) soon and I'll probably be flying in and out of Kansas City. Specific travel plans are still up in the air but if schedules allow I'd be down for grabbing a beer with any folks in KC before heading home. June 1st is the likely day I might have partly free.

Heading to KC next week for a conference, any where I should try to check out in my free time? Anyone up to meet?
My girlfriend and I actually just spent a week in Kansas City, and I did my best to hit a bunch of the breweries around the city. I don't pretend to be an expert by any means, but these are a few of the ones I liked, in order of preference:

Torn Label Brewing, in the Crossroads Arts District, was far and away the best beer I tried while in KC. We visited their taproom and got to chat with Travis Moore, one of the brewers and co-founders (he's a super cool dude who gave us samples even though they weren't open because we were flying out the next day), and he told us about how he and his co-founders were locals who simply want to bring beer the quality of what you'd find in California or Chicago to Kansas City. If you go to one brewery on your trip, I'd suggest making it this one.

— If you can make a visit to North Kansas City, check out Cinder Block Brewing. I didn't actually get to stop at their brewery, but I sampled their beers at several places around town and really enjoyed what I tried.

— You should probably check out Boulevard while you're there, too. Their taproom is worth a visit, though if you go on a weekend, expect it to be packed.

Will be in town next weekend for a conference. Is this post still accurate? Anything to add?

So if you're ever in Kansas City and in the mood for solid BBQ, the gas station across the street from Gates BBQ has a solid tome' selection available.

*sorry you guys can't see the pick but take my word for it k?
Seeing as how this is highly relevant to my interests tonight, which Gates BBQ were you referring to?
