Recently, we came across a great article from Pride of Maui that features 10 craft beers made by the different Hawaiʻi breweries! Happy to have been placed in not one, but TWO spots on their list! We LOVE our Hapa Brown Ale and Southern Cross Ale too guys! These award-winning brews are sure to please every palate!
Hereʻs what Pride of Maui had to say about our fan-favorite the Hapa Brown Ale, ranked, by them, as #5:
If you’re in search of yet another Big Island brewery producing quality beer, head to Hilo’s Hawaiʻi Nui Brewing, offering a delicious assortment of eco-friendly canned beers available throughout Hawaii. Our stand-out favorite is the island-style Hapa Brown Ale, silver medal winner in the American-Style Brown Ale Beer Category in the Brewers Association World Beer Cup. With a light toffee aroma and smooth caramel malt flavor, the Hapa is perfect for watching the sunset from your lanai or enjoying a nice meal under the stars.
And for our high-quality and deliciously smooth tasting Southern Cross Double Style Red Ale, ranked #10:
Named for a constellation that was discovered long before the Hawaiian Islands (around 1000 B.C.), Southern Cross is a Belgian-style, double Red Ale. Jackfruit citrus flavors combined with toffee and caramel maltiness make Southern Cross a perfect choice year-round, whether you prefer to enjoy it after a chilly drive to the top of Haleakala Volcano, refreshing snorkel at Honolua Bay or alongside your dinner with an ocean view. A Belgian yeast strain is used to ferment this beer and Hawaii Nui Brewing Company recommends pairing it with duck, pork or game for the best results. Grab a pint-sized can or one of their new 19 oz. cans and enjoy one of the best locally made beers in Hawaii!
