Here Are 3 Maui Breweries You Need to Know About
Kohola Brewery is a local favorite in the heart of Lahaina. The brewery gets its name from the Hawaiian word for whale and celebrates the mammals that travel through Hawaiian waters every year. You can find locally crafted lagers and ales here, like the Lokahi Pilsner and the Talk Story Pale Ale. Their selection of beer is so good that they were awarded the bronze medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival! Take a look at the menu and start thinking about the brews you want to try.
Good to Know: Kohola Brewery is family-friendly and welcomes minors accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Maui Brewing Co.
Maui Brewing Co. is another staple for beer lovers. The motto of this popular facility is “brewed with Aloha”, which means authenticity and connection are at the center of production. The brewery has two locations on the island. The first one is in Kihei, where you can take a tour of the brewhouse and cellar. There’s also a tasting room with jaw-dropping views of Haleakala! The second brewery is in Lahaina at the Kahana Gateway Center and features a pub with delicious food. Happy hour starts at 3:30 p.m. and lasts till 5:30 p.m. daily with $1 off every craft beer and cocktail on the menu!
Rock & Brews Restaurant
If you want to combine craft beer with fun, island vibes, then Rock and Brews is for you! It’s not a brewery like the two other ones, but it does serve some of the best local crafts! Their Paia location on the North Shore of the island offers a family-friendly atmosphere and excellent food. The beer menu includes lagers and pilsners, wheat beers, malty, dark, Belgian, but also hoppy and bitter options with a variety of IPAs. We highly recommend pairing your beverage with a craft burger like Road to Hana burger or the Ho’okipa. (The latter has a pineapple bbq sauce that’s to die for!) Check out their food menu for even more options.
