The craft beer scene is alive and kicking even in the tropical paradise of Hawaii! This is was such a pleasant surprise during this trip, as even in Manila, the craft beer scene is really taking off.
A stroll into this trendy district near the Ala Moana area where street art and food fairs abound reveals the location of Honolulu Beerworks, home of the fine craft beers this side of the Oahu island.
It’s got everything you can expect from a rogue brew maker hoping to challenge the Big Beer norm:
Styled inside a warehouse with spartan re-used interiors, vats upon vats of beers freshly brewed at the back of the bar, and a free-willing Aloha spirit that adds to the charm of the place.
But this is all about the beers.
Want to go on a flight? Select a maximum of six brews. Some may be unavailable, but the server will gladly help your out on looking at alternatives.
It helps if you start off with the less hoppier brews as you work your way into the fuller tasting ones. To help you on this, check out the I.B.U. of each brew. The higher the number means the more bitter the beer is.
Here are some of the favorites in this flight:
- Pia Mahi’ai Saison – refreshing and quite fruity, with some hints of banana. Really easy to drink
- South Shore Stout – Nice, dark, creamy, the fullness and caramel flavor actually helps in the bitterness
- Shaltered Bay IPA – Surprisingly, this one doesn’t give that much of a bitter flavor. As an India Pale Ale, this comes out as one of the easiest ones to drink
Some people say that drinking fancy craft beers connote a lot of pretensions and snobbishness. Truly disagree. There’s just too much variety and flavors out there that it invites people to tap into their adventurous side and learn that there’s more to beer out there.
And with the cool weather and aloha vibe, everything is just steady every visit to Honolulu Beerworks.
