Small Brewery Update: Longtime home brewer Nathan Munt and wife Brianna have launched a King Rover brewery in the King Valley, Victoria.
King River Brewing this week released small batches of its first two beers: An Altbier and an IPA hopped generously with Vic Secret, Ella and Galaxy.
They are pouring respectively at the Moyhu Hotel in Moyhu and Mountain View Hotel in Whitfield, which are both located a short drive from the brewery.
Upcoming are a Kolsch, a Tripel and a sour, the latter of which Munt hopes to ferment in barrels sourced from local winery Dal Zotto.
The Munts have installed a 10-hectolitre brewhouse sourced from Zybrew in China.
They hope to have a cellar door operational sometime in the coming months.
King River is the latest in a spree of brewery openings in Victoria’s High Country region.
