My picks of beer news from around the web that you need to read and my two cents on the topics. Most of the time it’s Hawaii beer news topics, but every once in a while you’ll find other general beer related topics.
The Street – Hawaii’s brewing scene may be small compared to some other states around the country, but we’ve got some passionate and amazing brewers. Awesome to see Kauai Beer Company get some national press here in a great video about the brewery. http://bit.ly/2aCL6MK
Frolic – Brand new beer spot, Growlers USA, is close to opening up on Kapahulu Ave. This is a chain restaurant from Oregon that features over 100 beers on draft, fill growlers and has a large menu. Similar to Yard House. http://bit.ly/2aQHdmZ
Pacific Business News – Palate Craft & Eatery quietly opened last week on Bethel Street in Downtown. This is the new spot from the Real/Brew’d, Troy and Lisa, and Pat Kashani from Tropics. Located in the former Cuba De Sol spot, Palate has 16 amazing beers on draft, craft cocktails and a nice selection of wine. They are open for lunch and dinner so swing by so a great beer and tasty upscale pub food. http://bit.ly/2aX0zs6
Pacific Business News – Kailua is getting a new beer spot! Grace in Growlers is slated to open this Fall in the 143 Hekili St., building. They will feature a large selection of beers on draft for consumption on site, though they will not fill any growlers. http://bit.ly/2aZiBuR
Full Sail Brewing – Full Sail Brewing made a big return to Hawaii a few months ago thanks to the help of Barney Brennan, the new Hawaii Sales manager for the brewery. Barney has moved to Hawaii full time and has been busy getting the brand set up. If you see him out and about say hi and help welcome him to the islands. http://bit.ly/2b3KOxU
