Oak & Steel, a new “craft drinkery” from Kyle Howard, opened in an unusual spot in Kansas City’s Crossroads neighborhood: under the Webster House parking garage a block away from the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
Howard gave the raw urban space a warm and polished finish, and Oak & Steel now operates like a tasting room, serving a clever wine list and quality spirits. There are also 24 beers on tap from independent craft breweries, many of them local such as Alma Mader Brewing, Cinder Block Brewery, Crane Brewing and Torn Label Brewing Co. – the goal is to never serve a guest the same beer twice.
For those interested in zero- and low-ABV beers, try a bottle of WellBeing Brewing Co.’s Hellraiser Dark Amber, or for another tasty non-alcoholic option, grab a can of Aaron’s Craft Soda, available in root beer, orange and lemon-lime.
