Buzzfeed’s list of “10 Awesome American Craft Breweries You Should Visit” includes breweries in Oregon, Colorado, New York, Hawaii and, yep, Kansas City.

75th Street Brewery, a Waldo brewpub at 520 W. 75th Street that’s celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, scored the 10th spot on the list.

The Kansas City brewpub is “among the best small-batch breweries in the United States,” reads the Buzzfeed post, and “The Muddy Mo’ Stout is just about perfect.”

The list also includes New Belgium Brewing Company, Kona Brewing Company and Brewery Ommegang, which is now Boulevard Brewing Company’s sister (or brother?) brewery. Boulevard also gets a shout-out in the 75th Street Brewery entry on Buzzfeed’s list.

In other Kansas City beer news:

A new collaboration beer from Central States Beverage Company and Santa Fe Brewing Company should be on tap in Kansas City next month.

Boulevard is discontinuing its Dry Stout beer. But it’ll be back for next year’s Irish Fest.

Springfield-based Mother’s Brewing Company just released a limited amount of Squashed, a chocolate pumpkin porter, in Kansas City.

Five new, local businesses are helping beginning homebrewers get ahead by offering classes, meet-ups and easy-to-use homebrewing kits.
