The Hawaii brewing scene is on fire right now with multiple breweries slated to open in the next few years, mostly on Oahu. But over on Maui, Kohola Brewery has quietly entered the market with plans to start brewing later this year. The brewery recently purchased the former Maui Brewing Company Lahaina facility and has been busy at work refurbishing the equipment and building out a brand new tasting room and bar.
The 25 barrel brewery will allow Kohola to grow and they’ve already secured a multi-year hop contract to make sure they are set for the future. I got a chance to catch up with the team at Kohola to talk about what’s behind their new brewery and learn more about what we can expect. Maui based Beertographer Bryan Berkowitz also had the chance to stop by the brewery and take a few preview pics.
