FORGET ABOUT THE WATER,

JUST DRINK THE BEER

In the early-to-mid 1900s, Excelsior

Springs became America’s “Haven of

Health.” Boasting 46 mineral water springs

and five different varieties of water, each

with unique supposed healing properties,

Excelsior was a wonder working destination

to the ill. Mineral water pavilions

and bath houses soon gave way to the

big business of health sanitariums. These

facilities thrived until a national media

expose of “dubious claims” dried up the

mineral water business. While the health

benefits of the area’s mineral waters may

have dried up, you can now let the beer at

Dubious Claims Brewing Co. be the cure

for whatever “ales” you.

Established in 2018, Dubious Claims

Brewing Co. is a craft brewery opened

by Neil Wilkerson. After “Neighbor Neil”

became a bit of a neighborhood celebrity

by brewing his own beer, he decided

to take it to the next level by opening his

own place right here in downtown Excelsior

Springs.

With over a dozen beers made right in

house in the state of the art brew house

and a complementary menu filled with

pizza, sandwiches and a delightful beer

cheese macaroni and cheese, every palate

is sure to be pleased.

If you’re a fan of the beer (oh, you will

be), you can even take some home with

you - beer can be canned at the bar and

glass growlers are available to fill with

your favorites. The most popular beer

is the Bathhouse Blueberry Wheat, but

there is a large variety, from light to dark,

to suit any preference. Seasonally, you will

find DCBC’s hard apple cider, made from

fresh apples from local orchards, or Mango

Town, a spin on the classic E-Town Ale,

perfect for sipping outside on the back

patio on a warm summer night.

Dubious Claims has two spaces perfect

for your event, and often hosts wedding

rehearsal dinners, reunions, birthday parties,

company gatherings and more.

Dubious Claims is also highly involved

and invested in the local community, and

has hosted several events that raised over

$90,000 to give back to local programs,

with plans for many more in the future.

If you’re looking for a friendly face, a

good meal, and a cold drink, make sure

to stop by Dubious Claims - we’ll save you

a seat!
