The inception of King Brewery was the creative development of Philip DiFonzo, who is both owner and head brewer.  Phil is a true beer enthusiast, an accredited Beer Judge, a Master Brewer of America, and arguably Canada’s most passionate man about beer.

After brewing on the amatuer circuit for over 15 years, with recipes winning 16 awards and critical success from beer experts, Phil decided to turn his hobby into a career.

Phil’s focus is on brewing beer the Old World way.  His equipment has been fashioned after the best breweries in Europe, and his brew day is 30-40% longer than most breweries in North America.  This dedication is the reason for delivering a World Class beer.  Often called one of Canada’s most passionate men about beer, Philip has a true love for the product and the industry he is now a part of.
