The 2016 Honolulu Brewers Festival is less than 3 weeks away and we’ve got the beer list. Now you have no excuse on waiting to get your tickets. The festival sold out last year and NO TICKETS will be sold at the door, so make sure you don’t get left behind.
As usual, the beer list is outstanding with a ton of great hard to find beers. The list is subject to change, so please be kind if you show up and a certain beer isn’t available (shipping and coordinating all these beers gets pretty tricky and things happen!). If you look carefully, you’ll spy Stone Brewing, which I know will get a lot of you very excited.
Full ticket and festival information is below the list. Also, don’t miss all of the events preceding the Festival during Honolulu Beer Week.
