Kings Park residents are now able to sit back and raise at glass at one of the downtown's popular restaurants. 

Relish has started serving up keg wines and a selection of craft-brewed beers to its menu, Newsday reports, in addition to serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Yes, that's right - keg wines. 

Relish is serving up wine that comes in a keg and is served via a tap , similar to beer, with each keg containing 20 liters of wine or 26 bottles. The restaurant is currently offering a steel-fermented chardonnay from California and an Italian merlot-cabernet blend from the Veneto. 

The Kings Park restaurant will reserve 6 of its taps for beers and is kicking off with an assortment of craft brews featuring local companies including Blue Point in Patchogue, Greenport Harbor Brewing, Spider Bite Beer Company in Holbrook, and KUKA Andean Brewing Company in Rockland County. 

Relish will be opening up once-a-month for a special "tap takeover" sure to delight beer lovers.

Is that supposed to be good news- adding kegs of alcohol to a local family restaurant ?

I ate there last month everything was fantastic! BUT, when I got home I was violently ill. I was sick through the following day from food poisoning.

Ummm, Hmmm, let me think... Drink and drive. Kind of struck me that this was posted like kegs of alcohol are a big draw. Guess so. I actually kind of liked going there and seeing people enjoy coffee, shakes and soft drinks. I must be living in a dream world to think those kinds of beverages were good enough- or enjoyable enough to leave alone. Guess not. Just my opinion.

Jumping from serving beer and wine to being responsible for their patrons drinking and driving is quite a specious comparison and it's just downright ridiculous.

Just to clear up any misconceptions. We will now in fact be serving beer and wine out of our new draft system. Wine served from kegs is considered friendlier to the environment because of the reduced amount of packaging. Our staff is trained to serve alcohol responsibly. -Steve
