    I didn’t even realize until just now that all the beers are west coast except for 1.

    I’ve had the Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale on my honeymoon in Kauai and it really wan’t that impressive. For all intensive purposes Craft brewing in Hawaii has only been around for maybe 20 years, and I’m not quite sure that the conditions are as ideal as say California Pacific coast, Northwest, or Northeast. There are no East coast beers on the list which make me question….? Hmmmm….?

    I had Kona Fire Rock in Maui. Really bad! I forced it down and ended up ordering a Stella. They have a lager called Longboard which is ok. I was pretty surprised by the lack of decent craft beer there. They really pimped the Kona stuff because its brewed on the big island.
