Kihei, Hawaii – Maui Brewing Company reveals their latest limited release, Pono Life Hazy IPA. The recipe was developed last year in collaboration with Roadhouse Brewing Company of Jackson Hole, WY. The beer truly reflects the spirit of collaboration and the passion for craft beer. “We’re excited to bring back Pono Life in celebration of our friendship with our Roadhouse Brewing ‘ohana,” stated MBC Founder and CEO Garrett Marrero. “The collaboration was originally brewed in early 2020. This year’s batch celebrates putting last year in the rear view and is a reminder to live the Pono Life.”
Changes to the recipe and can designs were made to be resourceful, adapt to the quality and availability of ingredients, and include a pointed focus on delivering the best beer possible. The fruit-forward hazy India Pale Ale is brewed with local lilikoi and a blend of tropical New Zealand Waimea, El Dorado, and citrusy, floral Citra Cryo hops offering an unfiltered (hazy) pale gold appearance. The aromatic island IPA is bursting with juicy pineapple, mango, and candied tangerine character. Maui Brewing Company’s Pono Life Hazy IPA comes in at 6.6% ABV and 66 IBUs.In celebration, MBC Kihei will be hosting an event, “May the Fourth Be With You”, on May 4th from 5:30-7:30pm with Roadhouse Brewing’s Co-Founders Gavin Fine and Colby Cox.
