The Rise & Fall Of Kansas City Craft Beer

It's pretty simple, stop charging $5-$7 per draw of hardly more passable beer than home brew. There's some pretty good ones out there, but for the most part a lot of these local breweries are not making beer that tastes any better than half-assed, garage home brew. Or worse, making beer that tastes like a pickled turd, and charging way too much for it.
