Tiny Bubbles: Hawaii Beer Reads for 7/18/13

Cantillon-Brussels-Belgium

My picks of beer news from around the web that you need to read and my two cents on the topics.  Most of the time it’s Hawaii beer news topics, but every once in a while you’ll find other general beer related topics.

Brookstone Beer Bulletin – Zwanze Day…never heard of it? It’s ok, cause now you know and can make plans to attend. Belgain lambic cult brewery Cantillon hosts this special day at select locations (only 46) around the world every year. We’re lucky enough that Real a Gastropub is one of these very select locations. Learn more about this special event here:  http://bit.ly/112AziK

The Full Pint – Sierra Nevada just announced the 2013 Beer Camp beers which include an IPA, a Belgain Black IPA and an Imperial Red. Look our for 12 packs in Hawaii soon! http://bit.ly/12zr7Bc

Beer Pulse – Ok, this is me just complaining and ranting again. Green Flash signs distribution in a couple new states with plans to enter into Michigan and Minnesota soon as well. Ergh, sigh, bla…maybe one day. http://bit.ly/15qfRZQ

Craft Shack – I recently stumbled across this site and was overjoyed when I saw they shipped to Hawaii! There are a lot of online beer stores popping up, but most won’t ship to Hawaii. Well, I joyfully loaded my shopping cart up with goodies from AleSmith, Allagash and Firestone only to be slapped in the face at check out with a we can’t ship to Hawaii notice. Their shipping terms say they ship to Hawaii, so maybe someone else can figure out how to get stuff here.  http://bit.ly/1211myw

Boston Globe – Seeing that Las Vegas is a travel destination of choice for a lot of Hawaii residents I thought this was a pretty relevant article. Casinos are adding more craft beer to their menus. Mandalay Bay now includes Lagunitas IPA as a free drink option for gamblers. If I gambled, I think I’d find a seat at Mandalay for sure.  http://b.globe.com/1211WfF

Shanken News Daily – Craft beer now represents 30% of Costco’s beer sales. I know on the mainland you can regularly find brands like Stone, Dupont and others stocked at Costco. http://bit.ly/195GqZw

  1. I was suspicious of Craft Shack’s inclusion of Hawai’i in their coverage area. Sure enough when I attempted an order I, like you, got the “Sorry” reply. I sent a query asking for clarification of the contradiction between proclamation and practice. No response was received. And, in addition to Green Flash expanding their distribution, note also New Belgium adding British Columbia . . . not Hawai’i.

  2. I had the same issue with craft shack, pretty lame. I have a feeling they are going to be answering a lot of questions tomorrow regarding shipping to Hawaii.
