“As Hawaii’s largest craft brewery we’re proud to partner with Hawaiian Airlines in having a truly local beer available to passengers. I am looking forward to enjoying a great beer as I travel to and from the islands,” said Garrett Marrero, founder of Maui Brewing Co.
Bikini Blonde Lager is a filtered Munich Helles Lager brewed with floral hops and Pilsner and Munich malts. It’s a bold Lager, but smooth and refreshing. Maui Brewing Co. is a craft brewery based in Maui. As the largest “authentic Hawaiian brewery” (as the company calls it), it currently has one brewery in Lahaina, and one brewpub in Kahana that creates more than 40 different styles on a rotating basis. In 2005, Maui Brewing produced 400 barrels (bbls) from the single brewpub and expanded into an additional brewery location in 2007, producing a little over 20,000 bbls in 2013.
Maui Brewing Co. is currently in construction on a brewery in Kihei. This will help meet current demand, and give the ability to open additional markets. The goal is to be brewing, drinking and shipping beer from this new brewery by the end of this year.
