Calibration Brewery Completes the Circle

Calibration Brewery Completes the Circle 17

If there’s one thing that the Northland is spoiled with, it’s breweries. In North Kansas City alone, Big Rip Brewing, Cinder Block Brewing and Grain to Glass, a homebrewing store, all provide ample places to drink the local tipple.

Sure, food trucks fill in the gaps and they will let you bring your own food in to eat but there’s something about being able to sit down with a flight of local favorites and a pile of wings to share with friends that simply can’t be beat. Now there’s a place to do that–Calibration Brewing.
