Australian brewer Endeavour Vintage Beer Co and Applejack Hospitality have announced a collaboration that will breathe new life into the former King’s Head Hotel in The Rocks, Sydney.

Inspired by the building’s long history of publican life, Endeavour Vintage Beer Co. founders Ben Kooyman, Andy Stewart and Dan Hastings will open The Endeavour Tap Rooms, a brewery, bar and restaurant with Applejack’s Hamish Watts & Ben Carroll in November.

The venue will be the first location for Endeavour Vintage Beer Co.’s own brewery and will follow the brand's philosophy of using all-Australian, seasonally-harvested ingredients with no preservatives. The restaurant menu will lend itself to the beers on tap and will offer a range of smoked produce from the land and sea, which will be served feast-style and accompanied with salads and house-made sauces. The on-tap beer and ferments will also play a key role in the kitchen.

In addition to beers, many of which will be rotating on-site exclusives, The Endeavour Tap Rooms’ taps will also be pouring seasonal cocktails and NSW wines from the keg as supplied by their favourite winemakers.

The renovation of the venue will coincide with the $15 million NSW Government initiative to renew and revitalise heritage retail tenancies in The Rocks.
