Real a Gastropub, a craft beer bar.

Terorotua greets Lamerson like an old friend and they immediately start geeking out over a Belgian-style ale brewed with papaya and mango and aged in cognac barrels; a beer called Tactical Nuclear Penguin, with 32 percent alcohol; Liquid Breadfruit, a collaboration between Maui Brewing and Dogfish Head; and the world’s most coveted and highly rated beer, Westvleteren XII from Belgium, available for the first time in the United States this year. (Obama supporters, throwing a Hawaii fundraiser for Obama in September, have already asked a local beer distributor to put aside 500 bottles, an impossible request, according to Terorotua.)

Not that Terorotua can get his hands on all these beers. “Hawaii is not abundant with beer yet,” he says. “It’s a constant struggle to get what we’re looking for.”

Terorotua says one of his beer importers told him, “I don’t know if Honolulu’s ready for a craft-beer bar.”

To which Terorotua replied, “Just keep the beer coming.”


How to properly end the night at Pint and Jigger.

Pint and Jigger

1936 S. King St., Suite 101, 744-9593.

Pint and Jigger inhabits Kochi’s old space in Moiliili, but all traces of that restaurant have been removed. “We wanted you to come into Pint and Jigger and feel like maybe you left Oahu for a couple of hours, to get away from what everyone’s really used to,” says Dave Newman, one of the partners in the new gastropub.
