Just a week into their second year, Bier Station has received an honor no other local establishment can claim.  This week, Draft Magazine named the craft beer establishment one of the 100 best Beer Bars in the United States.

Since opening in late December 2012, Bier Station has attracted craft beer lovers from not just all over the city, but from all over the region.  Featuring more than 20 taps and an entire wall of bottled beer that can be enjoyed on site or taken to go, Bier Station has something for everyone.  While they may not have the most taps or largest number of beers even in Kansas City, they do value quality over quantity.  Each time a keg is emptied it is replaced by a new offering.  This means if you go in tonight then that beer may not be there tomorrow, and the selection is constantly rotating to give customers a truly wonderful experience.

Every time I go in there, I am guaranteed to find a beer on tap that I’ve never had.  The bar staff is knowledgeable and willing to offer suggestions and advice if needed.  It must be a pretty sweet gig to have to go into work and sample the wares to make sure you know how to guide a customer to something they’ll really like.

In receiving this recognition, proprietor John Couture said; “we were shocked and honored.  I know people at beer bars around the country who have wanted to get on that list for years.”  On being told that they must be doing something right, he went on to say; “we will just keep working hard to serve the great beers people want.”

As one who appreciates quality libations, I for one, am extremely proud that Bier Station calls my neighborhood and Kansas City home.
