Introducing: The Parched Pig

We know Virginia is passionate about their local craft brewery and wine scene, which is why we are very excited to bring you your local favorites to the park! The Parched Pig, our new addition located in Old Virginia, will have a taproom feel, providing our guests a great place to relax and view passersby in the park. If you like to catch a game while tossing back a cold one, we’ll have TVs set up for you to watch your favorite sporting events as you take a break from the thrills. You’ll also enjoy the rustic feel in the newly remodeled space- perfect for you to enjoy a pint from some of the most popular, local craft breweries in the area. 

So why The Parched Pig? When our taproom dreams started becoming a reality, we sat down and talked about all the names of taprooms, bars, and restaurants that we remember and found one thing in common: the names were funny, quirky, and memorable. With the taproom being located in Old Virginia, we also wanted to be reminiscent of the area and something that would pay homage to Virginia history- hence, ham and pigs. Not only that, the restaurant directly across the street from the new taproom, Wayside Grill, will be offering Pork BBQ and homemade briskets in 2019 from brand new smokers added to the facility. Between all these facts, we decided that The Parched Pig just made sense for this new addition to the park! 

If you’re a regular to Kings Dominion, you’ll be happy to know that the 12 taps offered at The Parched Pig will be on rotation throughout the season, allowing you to experience a new taste each visit! 

In addition to several local wines, the official starting lineup for The Parched Pig will feature: 

  • Kings Brew Lager
  • Kings Brew IPA
  • COTU Chameleon IPA
  • Devil’s Backbone Gold Leaf Lager
  • Ardent Pilsner
  • Midnight Rockville Red Ale
  • Legend’s Brown Ale
  • Strangeways Albino Monkey White Ale 
  • Hardywood VIPA Pale Ale

And lastly, our third addition to the Kings Brew series: Kings Brew Amber! Our partnership with the Center of the Universe Brewing Company has produced another great drink for you craft beer lovers to enjoy! Just like our others in the Kings Brew series, this drink is exclusive to The Parched Pig and Kings Dominion. You’ll have to wait a little longer for this addition, as we expect it to take over a tap within The Parched Pig sometime in May.

You might be wondering with the taps on rotation throughout the season, how will you keep up with what’s currently being offered? Good news- we are now officially on Untappd! Untappd is a mobile phone application that allows users to check in to different taprooms and rate the beer you’ve tried. With maps included on the app, you’re able to see what’s on tap at nearby bars and venues, such as The Parched Pig! You can also keep track of drinks you love within the app, so you’ll know what to grab on your next visit to the park. By connecting your social media platforms, the app makes it easy to share photos of your favorite beer or wine at the taproom (not to make others jealous or anything….)

The Parched Pig will be open to our park guests soon after the park opens, which gives us another reason to be excited for the upcoming season! Stay tuned to our blog for more updates and news straight from the park. And don’t forget to purchase your Season Pass so you don’t miss out on the AMAZING tastes coming to Kings Dominion this year!
