The Martin City Brewing Company has already been making a splash in the Kansas City dining scene. With a delicious seasonal menu prepared by ambitious and passionate chefs, the Brewing Company features one of a kind signature macaroni and cheese dishes, garlic-infused fried egg sandwiches, and risotto balls, just a few of the offerings.
Co-owner Matt Moore’s grandfather once owned and operated a pub in the same 100-year-old building that the Martin City Brewing Company now occupies. Moore’s grandfather not only operated the Martin City Pub but also created the aforementioned Jess & Jim’s and R.C.’s Restaurant and Lounge just down the street. When Moore bought back the building (after being the Martin City Pub, it housed a handful of other businesses, most recently a Chinese restaurant), he had the intention of converting it back into a small town bar and café and that’s exactly what he’s done.
The Martin City Brewing Company is already doing more business than our current location can really handle,” says Moore. “And we don’t even actually have a brewery.” That’s about to change with the opening of the Martin City Pizza and Tap Room right next door.
Housed in a formerly vacant building, the Martin City Pizza and Tap Room will not only allow the Martin City Brewing Company to live up to its name but it will also expand their accommodations to add pizza and home-grown beer.
Moore has invested $320,000 in new equipment and $680,000 in rehab/new construction costs to bring the microbrewery to life. The new restaurant is expected to bring in around 20 new jobs right away but if the success of the Martin City Brewing Company is any indication of what’s to come, this little business is likely to grow quickly, especially with the upsurge in popularity of local specialty breweries and microbreweries.
