Enjoy Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii Kai

Next month, the Kona Brewing Company releases its annual Pipeline Porter, a dark ale mixed with local Kona coffee. With 2% of the average amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee, you won't have to worry about the beer keeping you awake. The brew is available September-March.

Their web site describes the beer: "Pipeline Porter is smooth and dark with a distinctive roasty aroma and earthy complexity from its diverse blends of premium malted barley. This celebration of malt unites with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown at Cornwell Estate on Hawaii’s Big Island, lending a unique roasted aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew."

The company believes in sustainability and green business practices. It has reduced its bottle weight by 11% this year, employs a sustainability coordinator, and produces the certified-organic Oceanic Organic Saison.

Rich Tucciarone is the brewmaster at Kona Brewing Company. He is a judge at the Great American Beer Festival, to be held this year in Denver, and World Beer Cup, the world's largest-ever commercial beer competition.

Enjoy the variety of beers offered at the Hawaii Kai location of the Kona Brewing Company, in the Koko Marina Center, enroute to Hanauma Bay, 7192 Kalaniana'ole Hwy. This is a full-service restaurant on the Hawaii Kai marina, and features a state-of-the-art beer delivery system with 24 taps.
