It's a sentimental loss for sure, but to be honest I rarely visit Westport anymore--for a variety of reasons.

We have been clamoring for a craft beer boom in KC for years. At the risk of over-simplifying, I'm afraid we need to accept this closure as an unfortunate consequence of the fulfillment of that desire.

I always enjoyed the food at McCoys and will probably stop in once before they close.

I will be there on the 20th for the Ursa Major release for sure. That will also be my last visit, no doubt. :(

There were probably multiple factors leading to the closure.

Web site says that they have tapped 2013 and 2014 Ursa Major.

They tapped it a couple weeks ago very quietly. Thought it was pretty curious when I saw they posted that...now it all makes sense.

Great memories as I was first discovering craft beer
