Lagunitas on Draft
When you first walk into The Westport Saloon and take your seat at the bar, you’ll notice that Lagunitas Brewing Co. is served on our selection of draught beer. Not only is Lagunitas on draft year round, but you’ll also find their name proudly displayed as an important sponsor of Westport Roots Festival each year. Between Lagunitas’ contributions as a supporter of live roots music in Kansas City and their exceptional beers, their popularity comes as no surprise.

At 6.2% ABV, this India Pale Ale serves as a great bang-for-your-buck – especially on Happy Hour at The Westport Saloon for just $3. Lagunitas on draft for that price is a steal and one that the staff here is proud to be able to offer. Alongside the Lagunitas IPA you will find Lagunitas Pils or another offering as a rotating selection from our friends. With just ten draught handles behind the bar, it’s a testament to the partnership between the two families that The Westport Saloon allocates 20% to showcasing Lagunitas on draft.
An important part of that partnership, as mentioned before, is Lagunitas’ commitment to sponsoring Westport Roots Festival. Lagunitas sponsored the Honky Tonk stage hosted by Ernie Biggs Piano Bar last year which showcased such acts as Carson McHone, Billy Don Burns, Dusty Rust, Sarah Gayle Meech and others.

It’s thanks in large part to sponsors like Lagunitas that live roots music and Westport Roots Festival have had such an energetic response in a few short years in Kansas City.

Developing friendships like this amongst industries helps keep live music healthy and alive in Kansas City and elsewhere and it’s an added bonus to enjoy such a delicious beer while helping to make that happen.
