King River Brew­ing KING VAL­LEY

North East Living Magazine - - News -

WHEN we first dis­cov­ered King River Brew­ing, driv­ing through the heart of the King Val­ley, we couldn't be­lieve our eyes. The site of the brew­ery is the fa­mous old Cucina restau­rant which, cen­tred around an old to­bacco kiln con­verted into a pizza oven, is a prop­erly rus­tic barn. Open­ing in Fe­bru­ary 2017, King River Brew­ing dropped the restau­rant vibe for a more laid-back feel in the barn. On tap at King Val­ley Brew­ing you'll find both easy-drink­ing styles in­clud­ing a crisp and easy-to-im­bibe kolsch, al­t­bier and Amer­i­can IPA, as well as a strong nod towards Bel­gian farm­house beers, such as a Bel­gian tripel, sai­son and pale ale. For tucker, you can't go wrong, with piz­zas, pret­zels and gourmet sausages all on of­fer to back up the Euro­pean style of the val­ley farm­house. In the gar­den, tree canopies pro­vide shade for kids, while the tap­room backs onto a lux­u­ri­ant gar­den in which you’d do lit­tle but drink…beer. King River Brew­ing owner and brewer-in-chief Nathan Munt says he wants the set­ting of his brew­ery to en­cap­su­late what the King Val­ley is all about. "I guess it's just be­ing re­laxed and hav­ing a good time," he said. "A lot of our beers are re­ally ap­proach­able, while this place is re­ally re­lax­ing – and King Val­ley is re­ally re­lax­ing. "If we're go­ing to em­body what the lo­ca­tion is, which is what I'd re­ally like to do, we just want peo­ple to re­lax and en­joy them­selves here at King River."
