For twenty years now, the 75th Street Brewery (520 W 75th St, just west of Wornall) has been serving locally brewed beer and tasty made-from-scratch foods to Waldo and Brookside residents. This Saturday they are kicking off a week-long celebration of their anniversary, with daily food and drink specials.
I’ve been a fan of this place for a long time..even though I’m not a beer drinker, we eat there often because the food and service are good, and they welcomed our kids for dining when they were smaller. I appreciate their 600 calories or less menu selections, the tasty sweet potato fries and the pizzas are delicious!
With so many beer pubs popping up in the metro area, it’s important to note the 75th Street Brewery started it all as they claim to be KC’s first brewpub. Although Saturday’s Summer Beer Fest is sold out , you can still stop by at 3pm and meet the original brewmaster, Tom Richer and try the 20th anniversary beer, Imperial Stout. On Monday August 19, the menu will feature throwback pricing to 1993, and on Thursday you can buy 75 cent pints of any of their flagship brews. For other specials during the week–check out their Facebook page, as unfortunately, there is no mention of the big anniversary celebration on their website (as of this writing).
The 75th Street Brewery is part of the KC Hopps restaurant chain, locally owned and operated. Other restaurants in the group include The Blue Moose, 810 Zone and Barley’s Brewhaus. Happy Anniversary to the 75th Street Brewery.. one of Waldo’s best casual restaurants!
