Beer and birds? Not the most natural combination of things, yet on June 24, the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project will join forces with the Maui Brew Pub to raise awareness and funds for rare and endangered birds struggling against extinction.
The brewpub will donate half of the night’s pint sales directly to the recovery project’s recovery efforts of Maui’s endangered forest birds. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and goes pint-happy until midnight. Enjoy this free event with one or more of the Brewing Company’s handcrafted ales, lagers and stouts. Of particular note, if the pub has the Red Cock Dopplebock on hand, just order it and sip responsibly. When the night comes to a close, the libation doesn’t have to. The Brewing Company fills growlers (a half-gallon glass jug) to please any and all with their particular brew, for home consumption.
The food is more than okay, with general pub fare such as chili fries, sliders, and hummus. However, the real reason to go to this pub is simply for the microbrews.
The Maui Brewing Company is located at the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center. Call 808-669-3474, or visit www.mauibrewingco.com. For more information on the recovery efforts of our rare birds, visit www.mauiforestbirds.org.
