Hawaii breweries make 'Best Beers in America' list

April 26th, 2016

Two neighbor island breweries were honored by Men’s Journal earlier this month when the magazine published its list of the 101 Best Beers in America.

Big Island Brewhaus' Overboard India Pale Ale and Maui Brewing Company’s Coconut Porter were the beers that made the list.

According to the magazine, the Overboard IPA provides “just the right amount of bitterness” and a “pleasant, citrusy aroma” that reminded writers of Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo and Anchor Steam’s Liberty Ale.

Of Maui Brewing’s porter, Men’s Journal said while Hawaii’s climate doesn’t typically make people crave the richness that comes with this style of beer, MBC puts “an island spin” on their version that incorporates toasted coconut to compliment chocolate notes and a “silky” mouthfeel.

Both beers are widely available at retail and are also easily found at Honolulu bars and restaurants.
