You wish your mom made macaroni and cheese like the four-cheese Mom's Mac N' Cheese at this booming Westport brewpub. Beer enthusiasts dig the Hog Pound brown ale and Ginger Shandy, made by brewmaster Keith Thompson (The Pitch's Best Brewer in 2008). Kids and nondrinkers love the house-brewed root beer. With a ring of flat-screen televisions around the bar and restaurant, it's as good a place to catch a game and a beer as it is to dive into a basket of excellent chicken tenders.
Every week, McCoy's sells about 7,500 pints of Hog Pound brown ale, Red Light Raspberry and Landing Light lager. The microbrewed delights travel only about 50 feet from their origin to empty glasses. For the past 11 years, brewmaster Keith Thompson has lovingly crafted a solid selection of more than a dozen ales, lagers, porters and stouts for McCoy's. "It's the freshest beer in midtown, if not all of KC," Thompson says. Having started in the breweries at Free State and 75th Street, Thompson now researches his craft by getting out to bars worldwide to taste as much beer as he can. With the opening of the Foundry, next door to McCoy's, the man behind the brew is responsible for even more of Westport's beer consumption.
