KCBeerfest is a semi-annual event that raises money for the Kansas City Free Health Clinic and the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City. As a volunteer health care provider at KC Free, I can say we really, REALLY appreciate every dollar that comes into the clinic, and a lot of people in this area don’t know that this is one of the largest free health clinics in the country. So, who doesn’t like to drink beer, and feel good that the money is going to a good cause at the same time?!

This 4th KCBeerfest is going to be held in Westport on May 22. This will be the first one I am unable to attend to volunteer for. ūüė¶ Westport should be a great location for this awesome event. It has taken a little longer this year for the volunteers who do KCBeerfest to get the list of beers updated, and I don’t know if this is comprehensive or not, but here is what I have as of today (just for fun, I’m placing an * next to any beers on the list I’ve not had before… there are a lot this year). As usual, there are some great beers on the list:
