We believe we are trendsetters and are proud to help lead the way in the recent Honolulu craft beer boom, and we were thrilled to be featured on the cover of the recent issue of ono, food and drink in Hawai’i. And also in an article in the Star Advertiser.
Here is an excerpt from the article that highlights our success at our newest location that offers the best Honolulu craft beers.
By 9 a.m., the grain for the daily batch of beer will be simmering in a large stainless-steel tank, which Lorenzen or his assistant brewer stirs occasionally with a paddle. The resulting grain-infused water will be siphoned into another tank, where it will be boiled with hops, before being chilled and transferred again to begin the fermentation process. Throughout the day, Lorenzen will oversee brewing, using downtime to chat with customers who trickle in during the day. By pau hana time, the outdoor bar, which serves a menu made to pair with beer, will be packed with the downtown post-work crowd and curious tourists. “Whatever I could have imagined the best possible outcome could be,” he says about the positive response from the public, “this is it.”
Waikiki Brewing Company was also featured in the recent issue of the Star Advertiser. They also had glowing comments for Waikiki Brewing Company. Here is the excerpt from that article:
Waikiki Brewing Co. is among the breweries that opened this year, and it has quickly become a favorite with both locals and visitors. The small brewery took over the space that served as a banquet room for Cheeseburger Waikiki. Head brewer and general manager Joe Lorenzen used every square inch of the space to pack in the brew system, fermenters and equipment.
