Hawaiian Beer

Honolulu Beerworks is Brewing!

Honolulu Beerworks is brewing beer! I profiled their first brew, a Kolsch, on HonoluluMagazine.com today. Geoff Seideman has been busy this week also brewing a Belgian Farmhouse Ale (Saison) and an IPA. He plans to brew a stout this weekend and 2 more beers for a total of 6 to open with.

There is still no set date for opening, but the space is getting closer to completion with mostly finishing touches needed to be done.

Honolulu Beerworks Bar

The concrete topped bar is faced with reclaimed wood jealousies that almost looks like tile.

The bar is big and long. Taps will be installed into the massive walk in fridge. Tables and benches will be going in soon as well.

If you want a view of the brewery then these seats will have the best view in the house. Geoff hopes to fill those barrels with a Barelywine and Imperial Stout.

Honolulu Beerworks Organic Malt

Organic malt went into the Saison brewed this week.

Honolulu Beerworks Fermentor

No, that’s not a code name for the beer. Geoff is using yeast from Wyeast and the strain for his Saison is Farmhouse Ale 3726.

Geoff and Charmayne adding the very first hops on the first brew.

Gravity readings are important. This one came out right on point.

  1. Please brew session beers, IPA’s, stouts and porters, oh yeah, and don’t serve food. Thanks. Okay, hot dogs burgers and non frew frew stuff, no annoying wait staff working a weird menu angling for the big bucks tip, just bar staff that knows shit about beer. Just some humbly rendered suggestions of a west coast transplant.
