Dining in Paradise, Kona Style
Kona teams up with Hilton Waikoloa for an Ono Beer Dinner
What happens when you mix Hawaii’s most delicious craft beer with one of the island’s premier oceanfront resorts? A match made in heaven.
Last month Kona teamed up with Hilton Waikoloa Village for a seven-course beer dinner and the result was pure magic. The Hilton chefs, who are all big fans of Kona, prepared the dinner with locally sourced ingredients and paired each course with a specialty Kona brew. Sandi Shriver, Kona’s Brewery Operations Manager, was on-hand to give tasting notes and talk about the brewing process, and Kona Brand Ambassador, Kimi Werner, attended the dinner and managed Kona’s first social media takeover for the day. Her course-by-course Instagram stories had us on the edge of our seats! And this sistah knows a thing or two about ono grinds—she’s the U.S. National Spearfishing Champion and a certified culinary chef.
Two big shakkas to the Bryson Alcordo, Brewery Representative on the Big Island, Eric Chang, Sr. Local Market Manager, and the Hilton dream team for putting this incredible dinner together!
