HONOLULU (KHON2) — American Craft Beer Week begins on Monday, May 16, which marks a week-long celebration of independent breweries and brewers in the country.
From pilsners and stouts to hazy IPAs and sours, Yelp has covered it all in their list of Top Breweries in Every State, according to their data.
Stewbum & Stonewall Brewing Co. earned the crown for the Aloha State. Established in 2014, this brewery’s story really began in the early 1970s when Joseph Garvey (aka Stewbum) and Thomas Jackson (aka Stonewall) met in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, while dating two that were sisters. They became instant best friends and enjoyed lots of beer over the years.
Stewbum & Stonewall Brewing Co. was founded by Darren Garvey (Stewbum’s son) and Eric Jackson (Stonewall’s son) as a tribute to their fathers’ friendship.
