Just Released: Hana Hou Hefe IN CANS – Now available at the brewery for an introductory price of $8 per 6 pack.  Soon to be hitting store shelves on Oahu.

Releasing Friday, 08/26 – Overnight IPA – Fresh Hop IPA made with organic ingredients – 6.54% ABV  69 IBU

Brewed with 90 lbs of fresh, wet, organic hops from Hos-Meister Farms in Clearlake, California and organic grain from Country Malt.  The hops were flown over as checked bags on the airplane to get them into the brew only 12 hours after leaving the farm.  Golden straw in color, highly attenuated and light on malt to let the hop flavor and aroma shine through.  Aromas of plum and rubbed tomato leaf come forward in the nose while grassy notes compliment the bitter finish.

14. Maui Brewing Company
New Beers:

ProAm batch of Tsunami 8, brewed with local home brewer Thor McCammon for the Great American Brewfest Festival competition, is available in the Kihei Tasting Room. With a nice pale straw color white head, this well balanced IPA was double dry hopped to show off aromas of pine, citrus and a hint of tropical fruit. The upfront bitterness lingers across the tongue and finally finishes with a slight alcoholic warming. Expect some earthiness to come out as well as this beer warms up. Thor, a home brewer for nearly two decades, is a co-founder and the current President of the Maui Homebrew Club. This IPA won the Best In Show for the 2016 Maui Homebrew Competition and will be sent off to GABF in Denver for the Pro-Am category.

12 can Variety Packs are available in the Kihei Tasting Room and will be available in markets soon. Includes Pineapple Mana Wheat, Big Swell IPA, Bikini Blonde Lager, and a rotation of our latest limited release – in this case, La Perouse White Witbier.

Back by popular demand, Blood Orange Lorenzini Double IPA launches on September 1st in the Kihei Tasting Room and the Lahaina Brewpub. IPA flight specials available.


Join MBC Kihei Tasting Room’s Cheers & Beers Pride Night for our LGBTQ Community and Friends. Live music featuring Jasmine Rice, Flat Jackson, and Shea Butter and The Cream. This month serving cask beer, cocktails, and plenty of MBC beer on tap. Ono food trucks. Everyone’s welcome!

Chef Cameron Lewark and MBC Founder Garrett Marrero present a 5-course tasting menu paired with 5 distinct Maui Brewing Co. beers. The event will be hosted at Spago’s in the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. Call 808.879.2999 for reservations.
