Making your way down Del Paso Boulevard, it’s tough to miss King Cong Brewing Co.: The massive silver tanks are visible through the front window, a recognizable sign for any craft beer lover to stop in for a drink. The Gorilla Pale Ale ($5.50) is a top costumer pick at this new North Sacramento brewery. The beer is a beautiful golden shade, with very little smell. At 5 percent ABV, it’s easy to drink with an enjoyable wheat flavor. The place gets bonus points for its playful “backyard”—a patio with big-kid Jenga, Connect Four and other games to enjoy with fellow beer lovers. 1709 Del Paso Boulevard,
