Popular Tampa-based coffee roaster and beer brewer King State’s empire is expanding to downtown St. Petersburg.

Adam Massey, who is a barback at the Tampa location, confirmed the expansion across the bay. The new King State location will be in the forthcoming COHatch, a St. Petersburg offshoot of the Tampa co-working space coming to 15 Eighth St. N.

Founded by brothers-in-law Nate Young and Tim McTague, King State opened on Floribraska Avenue in 2019. In addition to craft coffee and beer, the spot has a food menu and full liquor bar.

Young is an original member of Anberlin, an alternative-emo group from Florida; McTague toured with Tampa-based metalcore group Underoath. The idea for King State came from the type of spots they’d frequent while touring with their bands.
