We brew more than a dozen beers a year, but the regulars are our classic ales and lagers available in all 50 states. Each of these complex, full-tasting beers has a relaxed style and charm about it. Maybe that’s why people reach for them again... and again... and again.
Longboard Island Lager
Longboard Island Lager is a crisp, pale-gold lager made with choice malts and aromatic hops, brewed in a traditional lager style. It’s a smooth and easygoing beer that never goes out of style—ever.
The beach where it began
Thanks to a legendary local Hawaiian, Longboards have been a constant feature at Waikiki Beach for over 90 years. The great Duke Kahanamoku, father of modern surfing and Olympic Gold Medalist, paddled his handcrafted wooden board—a whopping 16 feet long and weighing 114 pounds—out into the surf to ride the waves off Waikiki. This behemoth was dubbed a longboard and thus the ancient Polynesian sport of surfing was reborn. Today, in the shadow of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach is still the spot to learn the tradition of longboard surfing. Here you can catch set after set of rolling waves until the sun fades below the horizon, and then it’s time for a Longboard Lager.
Big Wave Golden Ale
Big Wave is a lighter-bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor—smooth, easy drinking, and refreshing. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer, and our special blend of hops provides a bright, quenching finish that makes it a struggle to not grab another one.
Catch a wave
The waves in Hawaii are legendary. In the winter months, the island’s north and west coasts see big waves that often climb to 40 feet, with huge curls of white water breaking off shore. This is just one reason why surfers, body boarders, paddlers, and those of us just willing to watch from the beach make this pilgrimage.
Hanalei Island IPA
Hanalei Island IPA is an easy-drinking, sessionable beer that combines the hoppy aroma of an IPA with a tropical Hawaiian twist. Passionfruit, orange and guava balance the hops to deliver a coppery, session-style ale that reflects the flavors and spirit of the islands.
On the north coast of Kauai, the perfect crescent shape of Hanalei Bay tucks up against lush, green mountains streaked with waterfalls fed by the warm Pacific rain. This is the Hawaii of your dreams. Launch your kayak into the calm blue waters at the historic pier and take in the iconic view of white-sand beaches, the small village of Hanalei, and Makana Mountain (famously known as Bali Hai) towering above you. Paddling from this bay out to the Nā Pali Coast or up the Hanalei River you will discover more natural wonders that can only be seen as you glide through the water. With the sun above and your troubles behind, you might just feel like this place is as close to paradise as you’ll ever get.
Wailua Wheat is a golden, sun-colored ale with a bright, citrusy flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch.
Laid back in time
Imagine traveling along a 90-year-old winding road on the north coast of Maui, crossing one-lane stone bridges that take you back to old Hawaii. This simple “highway” is known as the Road to Hana, a historic fishing village and the birth place of a Hawaiian queen. The Road to Hana is filled with ocean views and cascading waterfalls such as Wailua Falls, a waterfall that plunges 95 feet into a natural pool cradled in the surrounding volcanic rock. Take a dip in the cool, refreshing water under the canopy of palm trees and you will feel the timelessness of this Hawaiian paradise.
Fire Rock Pale Ale
Fire Rock Pale Ale is a copper-colored ale made from roasted malts and a selection of premium hops. With a Hawaiian style all its own, Fire Rock is smooth, yet bold in both flavor and aroma.
The Big Island gets bigger
The southern point of the Big Island of Hawaii is punctuated by two active volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Kilauea. Eruptions from the east rift zone of Kilauea, the longest continuously erupting volcano, send rivers of red-hot lava down its slopes plunging into the Pacific Ocean, with steam clouds billowing from the shore as the lava hits the water. The island is expanding thanks to this force of nature, and Hawaii is one of the few places in the world where you can watch it happen before your eyes.
Kanaha Blonde Ale
Our brewer’s were inspired by the trade winds to create this smooth, refreshing blonde ale with the adventures of summer in mind. After a day riding the winds over shimmering waters, Kanaha Blonde ale is a bright, sessionable beer that will ease you ashore without weighing you down. Real mango fruit adds a juicy, tropical flavor that is easy like the islands. This crisp Kona brew will take you up, up and away.
The Winds of Adventure
The first Polynesian explorers ventured out across the South Pacific in double-hulled canoes driven by the wind. With their sails held taught against the blowing ocean breezes, they sped across the ocean and steered north, to Hawaii, bringing a courageous spirit and mastery of the trade winds to their new island home. Today, adventure flies just offshore at Kanaha Beach, on the north side of Maui. Among the best kite-boarding sites in the world, you will see colorful domed kits lifted high over the blue water and soar in view of the West Maui Mountains. Skilled kite-boarders hover lightly above the water as they glide fast behind their sails, mastering the wind for a thrilling ride and adventure all their own.
