Meet Dr. DeMare

MeetTheDoc-HawaiiNuiBrewing

Tim Golden of Beer in Hawaii took a moment to sit down with our owner, Dr. Paul DeMare, and find out just what it takes to run Mehana Brewing Company, the parent company of Hawaii Nui Brewing!

Here is some of the interview along with Dr. DeMareʻs responses:
