When it’s time to crack open a cold one, Kansas Citians say they reach for craft beer — most of the time.

That’s according to the feedback we received this week when we asked our listeners about their brew preferences.

Our curiosity piqued when we learned craft beer makers were coming to the Kansas City area this weekend for the Kansas Craft Brewers Exposition in Lawrence.

So, we took to the airwaves and social media this week with these questions: Are you a Joe six-pack or craft beer kind of person? Why?

Shout-outs for craft beer far outweighed any mentions of the larger domestic breweries, although many people said beer choice is a matter of mood. And sometimes your paycheck.

We shared some of your responses on the air, but see the highlights below from the online Tell KCUR conversation.

Tell KCUR is part of a new initiative to engage the community and shine a light on your experiences and opinions. We’ll ask a new question every week and then share your feedback on the air and online.
