Free State Brewing Co.

The first legal Kansas brewery after prohibition, Free State Brewing Company opened its Lawrence doors in 1989 after a 100-year drought. Enjoy a variety of longstanding beers that are named in honor of Kansas symbols, such as Wheat State Golden, as well as award-winning seasonal brews. Their motto quoting a Franciscan monk, "Because without beer, things do not seem to go as well," is something that certainly should be explored-not to mention their fish and chips. The city is also home to Lawrence Beer Co. and 23rd Street Brewery!
