Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison, brewed with Lost Abbey

Maui Lemongrass Saison

What started as a collaboration in 2013 with Lost Abbey is head to shelves again this month – Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison.

Lost Abbey’s Tomme Arthur mentions that a simple saison with lemongrass was a recipe he always wanted to create, but honestly, never got around to making. Hawaii’s Maui Brewing stepped in and helped make this beer a reality.

Simple recipe it may be, but neither of these breweries skimp on flavor. The Belgian-style saison uses 200 pounds of locally grown lemongrass.

Our original batch of this beer was the culmination of that vision; and Maui Brewing’s skillful use of this amazing flavor makes me truly wish it was available more often. In revisiting this recipe, my wishes are coming true,”

Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison is back in action starting Friday, January 6th, in 12 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Saison (w/ Lemongrass)
Hops: El Dorado, Cascade
Malts: Oats, Pilsner

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

Passionfruit, orange, & guava highlight Maui Brewing POG IPA

Maui Brewing POG IPA

Maui Brewing POG IPA is the latest release by the Hawaii based brewery, based on very popular juice drink.

Let’s start with POG. The acronym stands for the the juices ingredients- Passionfruit, Orange and Guava that got its start back in 1971. A woman named Mary Soon is accredited with the creation, who worked of the Haleakala Dairy on Maui. Interestingly, those same POG caps gave rise to a 1990’s game by the same name – POGS. (IF you don’t know what we are talking about, Google it.)

Maui Brewing POG IPA is an India pale ale brewed with Enigma, El Dorado, Jerrylo, and Citra hops, plus fresh Passionfruit, orange and guava. As you can imagine, the end result is hoppy, juicy, and full of tropical flavor.

Sourcing enough of the three fruit varieties is the biggest challenge. On top of that, guava has a really short shelf life once picked. It really makes brewing this beer exciting, because all of a sudden when the farmer has the yield we need, it’s GO time!” – Matt Ponichtera, Maui Brewing Supervisor

Maui Brewing POG IPA is available in 12 ounce cans across the brewery’s entire footprint for a limited time.

Style: IPA (w/ PassionfruitOrangesGuava)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: December, 2016

7.1% ABV, 58 IBUs

Maui Brewing will open a new restaurant in 2018

Maui Brewing Company (Kihei, HI) will open a new restaurant in 2018.

The Kailua Restaurant will open in the newly redesigned Lau Hala shops on Oahu. This will be the second by the brewery on the island – the first is Waikiki Beachcomber. That location is slated to open in the winter of 2016. The restaurant will feature dozens of beer taps, local food, house made sodas and cocktails.

“Craft beer is more than just beer, it’s a way of life that we look forward to sharing. Kailua is such a vibrant, tight knit community, and we couldn’t be more excited to become part of the neighborhood.” – Garrett Marrero, Founder of Maui Brewing Company.

Maui Brewing has tapped Mark Higa, and his team at WCIT architecture for the build. The brewery is on pace to brew 45,000 barrels  (1.4 million gallons) of beer in 2016.
