History

King’s Biergarten was established on April 15th, 2011. Hans Sitter, the founder of King’s, started by renovating an old computer shop into a quaint 45 seat restaurant. The purpose was to get a great bier and a bratwurst while you were getting your car washed on the same property. We started with 8 employees, no air-conditioning, limited seats, and a whole lot of adversity in the beginning, but we always held on to our vision. This is our story…

Yodel-Ay-Hee-Hoo!

Hans starts noticing there are hardly any restaurants that have a real patio to eat, drink, and be entertained on. He makes the decision to develop a real "Biergarten," like the ones in Munich or Vienna. Finally calling the new concept "King's Biergarten & Restaurant."
