The brewery’s name, King’s Road, refers to the establishment’s original address on the historic Kings Highway. King’s Highway is America’s oldest road, originally laid out from 1650 to 1735 in the American colonies. The “King’s road” was built on the order of Charles II of England, and used by post riders to deliver mail. It was eventually widened and smoothed to accommodate horse-drawn wagons and stagecoaches. In New Jersey, the highway was built in 1681 by the Colonial Assembly. The road passes through 8 different historic districts and 6 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Kings Road brew crew took craft beer to the next level by opening a brewery and tasting room in 2017 on King’s Highway in Haddonfield, New Jersey…a previously dry town since 1873!
Kings Road has a Mug Club. Each club member receives their own personalized numbered mug that hangs from the ceiling of the brewery’s two tasting rooms. Mug Club members get specially-priced pours from their very own mug each time they visit.
In 2021, Kings Road Brewing Company opened up a location in Medford New Jersey that included a dog friendly outdoor seating area. On October 3, 2021 Porter joined us for our first visit.
This was a bit of an emotional outing for me, as Margarita had always been our brewery/winery companion. As you can see from the unedited photo above, I think she joined us in spirit and was laying right next to Porter. Porter had many admirers and received an abundance of hugs, kisses, and belly rubs while Brian and I enjoyed our beer tasting.
The atmosphere here was fun, the staff were welcoming, and the beer was delicious! We were also lucky enough to catch the finals round of the King’s Road Steinholding contest, which was very exciting to watch (I think we may need to start training for next year’s competition)!
If you and your pup are ever in the Haddonfield or Medford areas of NJ, be sure to check out King’s Road Brewing Company!
Note: this post is back-dated. I am currently attempting to catch up on many missed memories that I failed to post over the last 2-3 years). I appreciate your patience as I attempt to bring my diary of “special moments with my dogs” up-to-date!
What an amazing weekend in May of 2021! It was so wonderful to be together with so many of our Dock Diving friends. Windmill Creek was beautiful and the wine was delicious!
