Maui Brewing Co. has announced it will be opening a restaurant in Kailua’s newly redesigned Lau Hala Shops in early 2018. The restaurant will be the craft brewery’s second location on O‘ahu. The first, located at the Waikiki Beachcomber, is expected to open this winter.

“Craft beer is more than just beer; it’s a way of life that we look forward to sharing” says Garrett Marrero, founder of Maui Brewing Co. “Kailua is such a vibrant, tight-knit community, and we couldn’t be more excited to become part of the neighborhood.”

The new restaurant will be open seven days a week with a lunch and dinner menu showcasing locally-sourced, carefully curated items that focus on island-inspired dining. It will also feature award-winning beverages, with dozens of craft beer taps as well as handcrafted sodas and cocktails.

“Highlighting the best the islands have to offer doesn’t stop at our food and drink menu,” adds Chris Thibaut, CEO of Maui Brewing Co. Restaurants. “We wanted to bring the beauty of Hawai‘i into the design of the restaurant while incorporating MBC’s island craft industrial style. We’re excited to be working with Hawai‘i’s own Mark Higa, and his team at WCIT architecture, to help us bring this vision to life. The restaurant will be an upbeat, fun, and vibrant place to enjoy a cold craft beer and high quality food made in house, from scratch.”

Maui Brewing Co.’s production facility in Kīhei is currently on pace to brew 45,000 barrels in 2016. MBC is a fiercely local company and has remained steadfast in keeping its production local. Inspired by the motto “Handcrafted Ales & Lagers Brewed with Aloha”, the Maui Brewing Co. team strives to be stewards of their communities and the āina, and curators of the craft beer way of life. Their beers have been awarded and recognized worldwide for quality and innovation.
