In a grand return to Kansas brewing tradition, the River City Brewing Co. opened its doors in March 1993. River City is the first brewpub in Wichita and only the third brewery to open in Kansas in well over half a century. Handcrafted beer, fresh food and a relaxed atmosphere are the cornerstones of the River City operation.
Tradition is important to us here at the Brewery. We chose this location because it reflects our heritage and helps renew our state’s brewing tradition. In addition, its cobblestone surroundings and gigantic timber beams create the perfect setting for what many might consider the quintessential Midwest brewpub. A sense of history helps us keep our feet on the ground and gives us a place in time. For River City we have found our home in a building that has supported the livelihoods of thousands of families since the early part of the century. The three-story building to the south was built by Bennett Paint Company in 1905 for all of $12,000. By 1909, our two-story structure had been added and the company had changed its name to the Hockaday Paint Company.
