Kona Brewing Company
About The Brand
Kona Brewing Company introduced Pacific Golden Ale (now called Big Wave Golden Ale) and Fire Rock Pale Ale to Hawaii in bottles and kegs on February 14, 1995. Longboard Island Lager was added three years later. Approximately 10 other styles of beer are brewed on a regular basis and served at Kona Brewing CompanyÍs pubs with a select few being served at some finer restaurants and markets. These range in color from very blonde to black; in flavor from tangy to hoppy to roasty and everything in between.æToday the three flagship beers are widely distributed throughout Hawaii, making Kona the top selling craft beer in the islands. Longboard Island Lager, Big Wave Golden Ale, Fire Rock Pale Ale, and Castaway IPA are distributed throughout all 50 states in the United States and 26 countries. The Aloha Series, made up of Koko Brown, Lemongrass Luau and Pipeline Porter, is distributed throughout the United States as well.
We Currently Stock:
Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale
Pale Ale | ABV: 6
Fire Rock Pale Ale is a crisp, refreshing Hawaiian-style pale ale. Its signature copper color results from the unique blend of specialty roasted malts. The pronounced citrus-floral hop aroma comes from the liberal amount of hops added to each brew.
Kona Longboard Lager
Lager | ABV: 4.6
Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.
Kona Big Wave
Golden Ale | ABV: 4.4
Our brewers wanted to make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water. Big Wave Golden Ale is just the ticket. Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor _ a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish.
Kona Castaway IPA
IPA | ABV: 6
Take a sip of this copper-colored India Pale Ale and you'll taste bold, citrusy hops with a touch of tropical mango and passion fruit, balanced by the rich caramel malts. Castaway IPA has a clean, crisp finish that's as refreshing as the wind in your face when you set sail for adventure.
Kona Pipeline Porter
Porter | ABV: 5.3
Hawaii is home to the North shore of Oahu, a seven mile stretch of coastline where big wave surfing was born. The Bonzai Pipeline is a particularly revered surf break that serves up steep, curling waves with a rush that leaves surfers wide-eyed and grinning. Kona Brewing Co. honors this mecca of surfing with a beer that delivers a little kick and thrill of its own. Brewed with Hawaiian Kona Coffee, Pipeline Porter has a boost of flavor with a smooth style that makes it as awesome as the waves that inspired it. The dark chocolate color, rich roasted malt flavor and smooth coffee finish takes the edge off when the waves are high and the wind is blowing.
Kona Wailua Wheat
Wheat | ABV: 5.4
On Maui, follow the old Hana Highway and you will find such a place _ Wailua Falls. This plunging cascade of clear water is the inspiration for Wailua Wheat. This golden, sun colored ale has a bright, citrus flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch.
Kona Lemongrass Luau
Ale | ABV: 5.8
Lemongrass Luau is a crisp, refreshing blonde ale brewed with a touch of wheat, malt, ginger, and fresh lemongrass. The hops lend layers of earth complexity that complement the spicy, gingersnap flavors and aromas from the ginger and fresh lemongrass added throughout the brew. A crisp, refreshing summer quencher!
