Honolulu Restaurant Guide

Though we strive to use Hawaiian spelling and punctuation across HONOLULU Magazine’s print, web and social media platforms, we’ve made an exception for databases, which have trouble reading ‘okina and kahakō.

Founded by a team of graduates from UH Mānoa’s business school and homebrew enthusiasts, this 5-year-old outfit opened in a warehouse off Hāmākua Marsh in Kailua with two core beers sold in tall 20-ounce bottles: a porter made with local vanilla, and a double IPA. The crew has steadily scaled up, adding new styles (including standouts such as the Route 70 Saison and ‘Ōkole Maluna, an imperial porter) and, now, a larger taproom in Kailua this fall, where drinkers will be able to order full-size pints.
