Cinder Block Brewery

(North Kansas City, MO)

Scooter’s 1000th bar, first visited in 2013.

Cinder Block Brewery, North Kansas City
I spent months thinking about what I wanted my 1,000th bar to be. It needed to be local, centrally-located, something special, not-pretentious, not a chain, not in the Power and Light District, and a place that had either recently opened or wasn’t well-known.

Fate seemed to have chosen Cinder Block Brewery for me, because it met every single one of these criteria and opened right after I reached #999.

I started off with the beer flight and, while I normally prefer the darker beers, I found the Northtown Native to be my favorite of the set.

As a slideshow of my previous 999 bars played on the wall, my family and friends sampled the brews and the salty snacks. (Free popcorn!) We also enjoyed the cake we brought in.

There’s free wifi, a popcorn machine, menus for various delivery places you can order in food from (Caddyshack Pizza being the best option of course). And for the technophiles such as myself, you can pay with your phone with the Square Wallet app.

Thank you Ashlee, Brandon, Cari, Cassie, Gary, Jake, Kurt, Mick, Seth, and my parents for coming out to join me for #1,000! And thank you, Cinder Block, for being a great host and for your gift of a growler of Northtown Native!
