Beer nerd alert: Torn Label Brewing Co. officially opens its taproom at noon on Saturday.
The newly constructed bar is located inside the 150-barrel brewery at 1708 Campbell St. The cozy space has reclaimed wood on the walls and ceiling and room for about 35 people. There’s more room and additional seating on the outdoor patio.
Torn Label’s taproom will serve the same beers the brewery started distributing to Missouri and Kansas bars earlier this year. Specialties include Monk & Honey, a Belgian-inspired ale brewed with Missouri honey, House Brew, a coffee wheat stout made with cold brew coffee from Thou Mayest, and Alpha Pale Ale, a hoppy yet easy-drinking beer with low alcohol content.
After the grand opening, Torn Label’s taproom will be open on weekends. The hours are 5 p.m.-midnight on Fridays, noon-midnight Saturdays and noon-8 p.m. Sundays.
A couple weeks ago, I stopped by Torn Label to tour the still-unfinished taproom, sample a few beers, and catch up with CEO Rafi Chaudry. Check out this video to see inside Torn Label’s taproom and hear how Chaudry feels about the East Crossroads brewery boom. Want more info about the local beer scene? Pick up a copy of the next Ink magazine, out July 15, for helpful info on all of Kansas City’s breweries and taprooms.
