Home of luaus and surfing, the islands of Hawai'i have been riding a wave of beer making in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The last state in the Union has not been last in creating amazing beers full of the Aloha Spirit. Like the people who settled all over Polynesia, Hawai'i’s beer brewers have been dreamers, adventurers and pioneers. From Captain James Cook’s emergency beer that nearly inspired a mutiny in 1778 to today’s explosion of celebrated craft breweries, the unique geography and culture make the islands a true beer lover’s paradise. Join brewer Paul Kan on an adventure through the history of beer making in a tropical wonderland.
