Release date for Malama Lager: Tuesday, April 12th
5.4% abv 22 IBU Style: Munich “Helles” Lager
Inspired by Bavaria’s most popular beer style, this golden lager is crisp yet soft with a wonderful malt finish. In Hawaiian “malama” means “to nurture and preserve”.

Release date for Dark Sabbath: Tuesday, April 19th
9.5% abv 35 IBU Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale or Abbey Ale
Dark Sabbath is robust and complex. Belgian yeast imparts plum, fig and citrus flavors that mingle with a wide range of malt flavors and a touch of spicy hops for balance. Traditionally served in special goblets, this Belgian style is a perfect accompaniment for a slow Sunday Sabbath afternoon.
