Lawrence’s Free State Brewing Co. celebrates 25 years in business

When it opened in 1989, Free State Brewing Co. was Kansas’ first brewery since Prohibition. Despite its growing number of competitors, Free State has managed — through a dedication to quality and a recipe for slow, steady growth — to maintain its reputation as one of the best brewpubs in the Midwest. Next week, the pioneer marks its 25th anniversary.
