Drawing on inspiration from one of the wildest terrains on Maui in the lava flows of La Perouse, brew master Kim Lutz’s La Perouse White will be the second limited release can selection from Maui Brewing Company. The beer is a fresh handcrafted Belgian inspired witbier brewed with wheat and European Pilsner malts, spiced with coriander and fresh local Mandarin oranges, and a silver medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival 2011.
La Perouse, which began as one of Kim’s 10-gallon homebrew batches, has now become a regular favorite at the Kahana Maui Brewing Company brewpub.
“Living in South Maui for many years, I wanted to highlight this beautiful sanctuary and create a refreshing and flavorful witbier using local fruit,” says Lutz, “It’s been unreal to see one of my recipes grow in popularity, win awards, and now become one of our new production cans.”
Pick up the new cans where you usually shop for MBC beer, but don’t delay.
“Distribution for La Perouse White will primarily be throughout the state of Hawaii and the ten mainland states where our products are currently found,” says Garrett Marrero, Brewery owner, “but it won’t be around long, it’s sure to fly off the shelves; there are only 200 barrels for release!”
