There came a point in time in the last two decades when a handful of Hawaii beer enthusiasts decided that sipping Mai-tai’s and imported beer just simply wasn’t good enough. Hawaii—with its iconic blend of active pursuits and laidback island lifestyle—needed some smooth beverages which would mimic the flavors of island life and provide local people with drinks they could be proud of. Out of this movement a number of breweries in Hawaii began operating with the goal of accomplishing this very task. Today, there are a number of breweries in Hawaii where locals and visitors alike can sit down and enjoy some handcrafted beers brewed right here in the middle of the Pacific.
