Do you think City Barrel is making a mistake by micro distributing its beer to liquor stores? I don't mind paying for high dollar beer and limited releases, etc but I was kind of shocked that i saw a 4 pack of City Barrel Kettle Sours selling for 18 bucks (With Tax) at Gomers. I would think you would want to build up a reputation first as high quality amazing beer but at that price point i think it would turn a lot of people off and it could be a mistake and backfire. Pretty much all the beer they sell at liquor stores is 13-15 bucks a 4 pack.

I somehow paid $28 for a crowler at City Barrel when they first opened. I still have not recovered.

Their beer is pretty good, though. Better crafted than most I've tried in KC.

Stopped into Rochester Brewing on First Friday. Had a hazy IPA (b/c of course) and a black currant sour. Really enjoyed both. Quality offerings in a nice space. I wish them well and will return.

I've been glad to see them work the dual coffee roasting/beer brewing concept. They have terrific morning hours considering how long they stay open every day, and the coffee is solid.
