While everyone at Maui Brewing Co. seems very laid back and nonchalant on the surface, don’t let them fool you. They are growing and they have a lot planned over the next two years, so keep your eyes peeled. Empty kegs from the mainland arrive only to be filled and shipped back. Why would they arrive empty? What a waste. I foresee a new distribution channel that will help bring a wider variety of craft brew from the mainland to the islands. In the Fall of 2015 look for Phase 2 of their expansion in Kehei when their Cidery and Distillery is expected to open. You heard it right…a Cidery and Distillery…coconut vodka, pineapple cider – the possibilities are endless.
Next time you’re in paradise make sure you hit up the Maui Brewing Company Brewery Tour at 910 Honoapiilani Highway #55 Lahaina, HI 96761. Call them ahead at +1 (808) 661-6205 to make a reservation. Tours cost $10 and include 2 oz tastes of their most popular brews along with a free pint at their Brewpub. You simply can’t beat a fresh pint of their Coconut Porter, Mana Wheat, Lahaina Town Brown or most popular Bikini Blonde – treat yourself. Aloha!
