Waikiki Brewing Company Grand Opening Beer List

Waikiki Brewing Company IPA

Waikiki Brewing Company officially opens tomorrow, March 24th, at 11am. They will be open daily from 11am to 11pm serving 8 house brewed beers. They are located directly next to (attached) Cheeseburger Waikiki at 1945 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815.

Here are the beers you’ll find on tap tomorrow. Go down and show some support for Oahu’s newest brewery.

Aloha Spirit Blonde:
OG: 10
FG: 1.5
ABV: 4.62%
IBU: 18

Light crystal and two row malts combine to make the base for this light and refreshing blonde ale.  Perle and tettnang hops provide slight bitterness and balance to the malt, and a late addition of cascade hops in the boil lend a delicate aroma to the finished beer.

Ala Moana Amber:
OG: 13
FG: 2.5
ABV 5.62%
IBU: 30

Five different types of malt provide both body and color to this richly tinted amber ale.  Perle and tettnang hops are used for bitterness and flavor, and cascade and centennial hops provide citrus and pine like notes to contribute to aroma.

808 Pale Ale:
OG: 13.2
FG: 1.5
ABV: 6.25%
IBU: 38

Two row malt makes up the base of our pale ale while two different roasts of crystal malt provide color and flavor to the beer.  Centennial hops contribute bitterness, a mid-boil addition of perle hops add flavor, and a last minute addition of cascade hops provide the aroma.  We then use cascade hops in a technique called “dry hopping” during fermentation to further accentuate the hop aroma.

Eee Pah IPA:
OG: 15.5
FG: 2.2
ABV: 7.18%
IBU: 75

Two row and crystal malts make for a nice malty backbone to support the big IBU and aroma of our IPA. We use a combination of centennial, cascade, and simcoe hops in three separate boil additions to give bitterness, then dry hop with the same three hops to drive the intensity of the floral, piney, citrus, and currant aromas as high as possible.

Hana Hou Hefe:
OG: 13.5
FG: 1.5
ABV: 6.55%
IBU: 15

Equal parts malted barley and malted wheat make up the base for this beer.  Noble hop, tettnang, provides the bitterness and small additions of perle and centetnnial in the whirlpool balance out the aroma.  An addition of sweet orange peel and strawberry puree prior to fermentation make this cloudy American style hefeweizen the ultimate in refreshment.

Black Strap Molasses Porter:
OG: 15
FG: 3
ABV: 6.48%
IBU: 37

Two Row, crystal and Munich malts create the base for the big flavors of chocolate and black malt to build upon.  The chocolate and coffee flavor and aroma of the malts are highlighted nicely by the addition of black strap molasses in the boil.  Goldings and Fuggle hops provide refined earthy bitterness that compliments the roasty flavors of the malt nicely.

Jalapeno Mouth:
OG: 13
FG: 3
ABV: 5.36%
IBU: 30

A malty, balanced amber ale provides the base for this beer which utilizes fresh jalapeno chilies in the boil.  A wonderful green chili aroma is at the forefront of this beer and just enough pepper heat on the finish to draw you in for another glass.

Engl-ish Brown Ale:
OG: 12.6
FG: 3
ABV: 5.14%
IBU: 26

Nutty and roasty malt flavors set the stage for this take on an English Brown.  Utilizing hops of English origin that are grown in the Pacific Northwest lend a touch of American flavor to this traditional recipe.

  2. I’m a beer snob and this place ranks towards the top! Can’t go wrong with the IPA and the Jalapeno Mouth was brewed to perfection.
