Malama 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”.

Dark Sabbath
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
