So, when planning the trip to Kansas, our SIL said we had to stop at Free State Brewing Company in Lawrence, Kansas. Since Lawrence was one of our favorite places when we lived there, a stop there was definitely an easy decision.
This simple wooden door flanked by native limestone leads to a hopping (pun intended) brewery and restaurant. They open at 11 a.m., we arrived at 11:30 a.m., and it was packed by noon.
We could certainly see why after we ordered our beer, Wheat State Golden and Dirty Kanza Kolsch, along with our pulled pork with peach preserves on a biscuit with the biggest and best onion rings ever. The photo of the food is larger than the beer photo because the beer was great but the food was unbelievably good. Add to the great beer and the delicious food the absolute best server ever, Shannon, and you have a door and a lunch to remember.
If passing near Lawrence, Kansas, check out the history and be sure to look for this wooden door at 636 Massachusetts Avenue leading to both a brewing and a culinary delight. 🙂
