Maui Pint Night for the Birds Benefit, Nov. 29

The Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project joins Maui Brewing Company for a “Pint Night for the Birds” benefit.

Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina hosts the event, with half the pub profits from house beers sold going towards the protection of native birds and endangered species on Maui.

Maui Forest Birds is dedicated to the conservation and research of rare and endangered bird species on Maui, like the Kiwikiu, a bird found nowhere else in the world.  The species recently experienced an unexpected setback when nine of the critically endangered birds were found dead [1].  Biologists suspect avian malaria as the cause.

Event organizers advise those participating in the event to “Please drink responsibly and have a designated driver.”

Maui Brewing Company brewpub is located at 4405 Honoapiʻilani Hwy in the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center, just north of Lahaina.  The event runs from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, 2019.
