trips to Kansas, I've been getting familiar with the beers offered by two of the best breweries around Kansas City: Free State in Lawrence, KS and Boulevard in Kansas City. Both are ubiquitous out there, and since the brewery is a 5-minute drive that way, it's some of the freshest beer available. Before this last trip, I looked up the beer tours at Boulevard only to find out that it's just as bad as Anchor! You need reservations months in advance. Luckily, Kansas is awesome and got us spots on a tour even though it was fully booked.
