The Big Rip Brewing Company is a growing 4bbl brewery that opened in May 2013. The Big Rip is founded by two friends who caught the beer and wine making bug years ago and decided to throw in together to start this brewery. We don’t have goals of taking over the world or creating beer that only appeals to a select few. Instead, we want to create unique beers that appeal to both beer-nerds and people new to craft beer.
Along with producing quality beer, we serve our beer and local wine in our tap room. Think of our tap room as a comfortable place where you can chill out. We also have a full bar that includes our homemade root beer that goes great with SD Strong Vodka that we infuse with vanilla beans.
Small batch production
We are brewing small batches on a 4 bbl system that uses a custom computerized control system and glycol chilled fermenters just like the big boys to ensure we get the best results each and every time. What we lack in size we will make up for in quality and creativity. Our hope is that you will share in our vision of making The Big Rip Brewing Company a great destination in Kansas City.
Bring your own food or order BBQ from next door
We do not make food, however Hawg Jaw Que & Brew is next door and they will be happy to bring BBQ and other food over to you in our taproom. We also welcome patrons to bring food in, order a pizza from one of the great places that will deliver or simply drink your meal.
We work regularly with local charities including Great Plains SPCA and Social Heart. We have also partnered with a local farmer so that our left-over grain doesn’t go to waste. They use this grain to feed cows, chickens and as fertilizer.
The Big Rip will support our local community through the creation of quality, unique craft beers which are made using the best ingredients and environmentally sound practices.
