Maui Brewing Company opened its second Oahu restaurant this week.
The 6,500 square-foot restaurant is located at Lau Hala Shops, a new retail center in Kailua in the former Macy’s building, and features indoor and outdoor dining with more than 20 craft beers on tap.
The space also features two murals by renowned local artist Kamea Hadar.
“Several of our partners call Kailua home,” said Chris Thibaut, CEO of restaurants at Maui Brewing Company, “so we’re honored to be able to open a restaurant here, amongst such a tight knit community. The craft beer way of life is all about that feeling of community and collaboration, and we couldn’t be more excited to apply those passions in our Kailua location.”
“I love that the beauty of Kailua is found not only in its beaches and landscapes, but also by the community’s commitment to each other and to supporting local,” said Garrett Marrero, Maui Brewing Company founder. “As a fiercely local company, we connect to that feeling and are looking forward to all of the good times (and craft beers!) we’ll share as neighbors in the Kailua community.”
The beer list for Maui Brewing Company’s Kailua restaurant includes its flagship line-up of beers: Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, Pineapple Mana Wheat, Coconut Hiwa Porter, Double Overhead Double IPA, and Pau Hana Pilsner – as well as limited release beers like Lilikoi Saison, Pueo Pale Ale, POG IPA, and Shoots Brut. Comrade Crafts – beers made by other craft breweries – including varieties that are not available on draft anywhere else on island, are also featured at this location.
This year MBC will also expand its natural soda offerings, and add distilled spirits and canned craft cocktails to the brand.
Maui Brewing Co. Kailua features daily live music and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., with happy hour from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
