Lawrence- Free State Brewing Company
As a K-State Alumnus, I truly believe that Manhattan, Kansas is one of greatest places on earth. That being said, there is one thing I like about that other city with that other university. And not just a great sports rivalry; I’m talking about the Free State Brewing Company in Lawrence, Kansas.
On a recent Saturday evening visit, we found the place to be packed (certainly a sign of popularity) but our wait time lasted just about as long as it took to sample a liquid offering. Now, I won’t claim to be any kind of beer expert, but I do like many of the available products of this local brewery.
What I like even better than good drink, is good food. And I’ve certainly had some here. Specifically, I recommend the Cuban Pork Sandwich.
I’ve never had a Cuban sandwich I didn’t like. How can you go wrong with fresh dill pickles and delicious pork piled so high? I also had an amazingly good cheese soup made with Free State beer. Pair the Cuban sandwich with the cheese soup and a wheat beer and you have a meal that you will not soon forget!
