Maui Brewing Company Kihei Brewery Update Part 2

It’s been a little over a year since the groundbreaking of the new Maui Brewing Company production facility in Kihei, Maui. It’s amazing how quickly the massive new brewery and tasting room have come up. The 50 barrel brewery is slated to open this October along with full tasting room. The brewpub at the same location will be completed later in 2015. Luckily for Maui Brewing fans, owner Garrett Marrero has been documenting the entire building process with his iPhone and posting updates to Instagram.

A couple of pretty cool bits about the new brewery:

  • 3400+ cubic yards of concrete were poured
  • 10,000+ ft of air line
  • 9000+ ft of stainless steel piping
  • 20,000+ ft of electrical and control wire

You can check out the first half of the building process here.
