Maui Brewing Company’s dedication to sustainability and producing a truly local product has been well documented. So let’s focus on the beer: clearly, MBC is committed to honing the craft of beermaking, experimenting with different styles and techniques. You’ve seen the IPA, Bikini Blonde and Coconut Porter in the grocery store cooler, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg: confess your sins to the Father Damien Abbey Ale, a mix of fruit and malt flavors that packs a 9.6 percent alcohol punch; run through the Mana Wheat, a Belgian style brew augmented by fresh Maui pineapple; joust with the robust Dark Knight Lager—the list goes on. And if you still don’t know why they use cans instead of bottles, visit the Lahaina brewing facility and get the scoop. 4405 Honoapiilani Hwy. #217, Lahaina, 808-669-3474. [JS]
