On July Fourth, eaters can get a taste of Berkeley’s forthcoming American Elm restaurant and its food truck counterpart, Kings County Kitchen. At Declaration Brewing in Overland, Chef Brendon Doyle is hosting a pop-up “BrewLau” starting at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

For the holiday, Doyle will be making kalua pig, a Hawaiian preparation of slow-roasted pork shoulder, served with rice, kale salad, and coconut syrup-glazed sweet potatoes. The special costs $15, or $20 with a pint from Declaration Brewing. A pie-eating contest kicks off at 4 p.m., followed by live music from The Royal Aces Surf Band.

Kings County Kitchen is set to debut later this summer with a permanent parking spot at the Overland neighborhood brewery. The truck is an offshoot of American Elm, Doyle’s new restaurant in the old Way Back spot located on 38th Avenue. Both new eateries will serve regional comfort dishes, with the truck focusing on fast foods such as fried chicken, burgers, even oysters. The new restaurant should open by late fall.
