King Brewery & Brew Pub??

It appears that King Brewery owner Phil DiFonzo has his sights set on expanding the business, from what I gathered after reading an article in the King Township Sentinel newspaper.

For the future, King Brewery is considering a more versatile location within the township in order to facilitate a more event structured restaurant atmosphere where tourists can come and enjoy themselves.

"Maybe a beer gardens venue, where people can get schnitzel or sausage and have your freshly poured beer right from the brewery," said DiFonzo. "I think that environment would be god for beer drinkers, as well as King Township."
I like the sounds of that already! Ontario only has a handful of brew pubs (that I can name off the top of my head) and compared to other provinces we have a lot of catching up to do. And Nobleton, ON is a nice getaway out of the city and not to far away. The King Brewery is spotless, everything is well maintained and the folks are terrific people, it would make for a perfect Saturday afternoon.

King is also set to launch their spring seasonal Pilsbock. If you couldn't tell by the name, the beer is a mix between King's original pilsner and a bock. It will be available on draught at selection locations and at the brewery, and plans are to have it grace the shelves of the LCBO and Beer Stores one day.
