10. Maui Brewing Company
New Beers:

Haleakala SunRyes IPA: This India Pale Ale pours a deep copper color with a fairly rich malt character countered by the resiny, herbal and zesty Chinook and Zythos hops. Dry-hopped for a pleasantly pungent pine & citrus aroma.
Rye adds a strong earthy and spicy character that compliments the bitterness and flavors of hop-forward IPAs. ABV: 5.7% IBU: 78

Suck ‘Em Up Session IPA: A light, easy drinking, session IPA. All the flavor and hops of your typical IPA, without the high alcohol content. Crisp and clean, with light malt characteristics. The smooth body
comes from the use of premium English Maris Otter malt instead of typical 2-row barley. The pleasant hop aromas derive from late additions of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. This variety lends a delicate fruitiness. Drinkers
will often pick up fresh crush grape or gooseberry. ABV: 4.8% IBU: 51

Available Only in the Kihei Tasting Room and Lahaina Brewpub:
Kaanapali Coffee Porter
Hot Blonde
