Brewery Description:

23rd Street Brewery does not merely fall into the category of bar and grill or a typical brewpub – 23rd Street Brewery is much more. We are a catering company, a banquet facility, a nightspot for Greek functions, a beer distribution operation, a fundraising machine for local charities, and a venue to throw huge promotional parties. Celebrate with friends and family for events like the first day of summer, Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day, or family birthday parties. This is something that could only be done in a college town like Lawrence where there is so much talent, experience and opportunity concentrated into one place, allowing the vision of this restaurant to expand outside of the box. At 23rd Street Brewery, we pride ourselves in creating and offering ales and lagers of exceptional quality. Often in the micro brewing industry, quality is compromised for quantity. We brew handcrafted, small batch beers to ensure freshness is as crisp as it is clean. We use only the finest domestic and imported barley and hops to brew beers of tradition and beers of distinction. The brew house we call home is a 15 barrel Pub Brewing System located on the upper level of the impressive brewery interior. In the past year, we have doubled our production to exceed 1000 barrels (2000 Kegs) per year and have begun distributing to other bars and restaurants throughout Kansas. Bryan “Bucky” Buckingham, brew master of the 23rd Street Brewery, is creating mouth watering specialty beers and recently won a Silver Medal in the Irish Style Red Ale category at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival for Crimson Phog.
