Drink Local at KC’s Beachside Bar!

By | Blog

At Volleyball Beach we’re all about celebrating and supporting local businesses! That’s why we’re proud to offer our customers a variety of Kansas City brewed beers and distilled spirits! Let’s take a peek behind the counter of KC’s one and only Beachside Bar and learn more about the history of the local beverage selections offered.

Martin City Brewing CompanyWith a simple proposal between two friends, Martin City Brewing Company came to life. Originating as a brewpub right here in Martin City, Martin City Brewing Company now consists of not only a brewpub, but also a Pizza restaurant, Taproom as well as hosting its namesake Brewery. Why not try Martin City Hard Way IPA – described as “an American Style IPA with a touch of toasted malt flavor which accents the hops with citrus flavors and aromas coming from the triple dry hopping.” Dee-lish!

KC Bier Co: The mission of KC Bier Co is to bring the authentic flavor of German-style bier back to the United States. Opening in 2014, Kansas Citians have embraced the added diversity KC Bier Co has brought to the table. Dunkel is a locally known favorite from KC Bier and Volleyball Beach is excited for our customers to give it a try! Described as a “full-bodied, brown, Munich-style lager with low bitterness and rich toasted-bread-crust and caramel malt flavors,” Dunkel is now one of KC’s most sought-after beers! Take our word for it and switch up your normal Beachside Bar order now and again with KC Bier Co’s Dunkel – you won’t be disappointed!

Tom’s Town Distilling Co: Drawing its name and inspiration from KC’s own “Boss” Tom Pendergast – best known as one of the country’s most corrupt and polarizing political bosses – Tom’s Town is the first legal distillery in downtown Kansas City since Prohibition. “The people are thirsty,” is the motivation behind Tom’s Town and Volleyball Beach would have to second that! Expand your palate with Tom’s Town Pendergast’s Royal Gold Bourbon! Enjoy the rich warmth and, “aromas of caramelized sugar, pleasant oak and stone fruits.” It’s a Beachside Bar game changer!

S.D. Strong Distilling: Located in Parkville, Missouri, S.D. Strong Distilling is the only know distillery located in a cave – 65 feet underground to be exact! Distilling spirits in a cave ensures a one of a kind flavor experience as the temperature and weather conditions never vary. Give it a try yourself! Next time you order your favorite mixed drink, ask your bartender to substitute S.D. Strong Vodka – “an extraordinary vodka that is as smooth as it is strong.” Now that’s something we can all rally behind!

Thirsty yet? Rest assured, we’ve got a local adult beverage available to please just about every taste! After you work up a sweat on the sandy courts, grab a seat with your teammates and cool down with the local offerings of our Beachside Bar!

Bumping, Setting and Spiking for a Cause

What’s better than spending a day in the sun and sand while raising money for a great cause? It’s at trick question, there’s nothing else we can think of – especially if the event is the Dig City KC charity volleyball tournament hosted by Phoenix Family and Trent Green right here at Volleyball Beach!

Trent Green and Volleyball Beach’s own, Howard Barewin!

The day was full of sunshine and smiles as former Kansas City Chief and current National Sports Broadcaster, Trent Green, and 30+ teams competed for a shot in the Dig City KC championship game! Unfortunately for Green, the former All-Pro Chiefs Quarterback, he and his team didn’t walk away with the title but, with their help, nearly $1,000 was raised for their beneficiary, HIKE (Help Instill the Key to Education).

The mission of HIKE is to, “provide low-income children individualized reading instruction to improve their literacy, leading to greater success in school and increased opportunities in life.” With the help of Trent Green, HIKE is part if the change these kids need to improve their lives. If you weren’t able to attend Dig City KC this year and still want to support the cause, it’s not too late to contribute. Click here for more information!
