Dry Side Stout

Available Now While Supplies Last

Dry-Side Stout – An “Irish-Style” Dry Stout…Roasty, bitter and dry with strong roasted malt

flavors and subtle caramel notes. Named “Dry-Side” for the dry Kona weather we typically

enjoy here on the “dry-side” and also for the dry finish of this beer. Hops take a back seat

so the roasted malt flavors can fully express themselves! In true KBC BIG Island

fashion…Kona Dry-Side Stout is slightly heartier and slightly higher in alcohol when

compared to its “Irish cousin" yet enables you to enjoy a few and still maintain your wits

about you! Medium body and pronounced roastiness make this beer a great choice for the

stout or porter aficionado. Dry-Side is lower in CO2 than our other beers and dispensed

with Nitrogen to enhance its malty texture and round out the roastiness.

Cacao Brown

Available Now While Supplies Last

The Kona Brewing Company Brew Staff added 100 pounds of Brewer’s Chocolate directly to the mash to create a deliciously smooth chocolate flavor for this malt forward Brown Ale. The Brewer’s Chocolate was produced by award-winning Primavera Farms in Kealakakua on the Big Island and is a combination of finely crushed roasted cacao nibs and shell that lend a bitter dark chocolate flavor to balance with the sweet wort from the barley. Hawai’i is the only US state that commercially grows Cacao, and creates some of the World’s finest chocolate. The cacao tree produces pods that grow directly on the trunk. The harvested pods are opened, typically with a machete, to expose the beans. The pulp and cocoa seeds are removed, and the rind is discarded. The pulp and seeds are then piled in heaps, placed in bins, or laid out on grates for several days. During this time, the seeds and pulp undergo "sweating", where the thick pulp liquefies as it ferments. The fermented pulp trickles away, leaving cocoa seeds behind to be collected. Next, the beans are roasted and then cracked and deshelled, the resulting pieces of beans are called nibs. These nibs are what chocolate is made from!

Salty Beaches

Available Now While Supplies Last

Our take on this Mexican style lager was brewed at cooler temperatures over several weeks to highlight the clean, crisp flavors provided by pale two-row malt and flaked maize. The use of this unique hop blend provides a tropical fruit and citrus taste and aroma while the addition of Hawaiian sea salt and local limes give us big time beach vibes. Pale yellow in color and lower in alcohol, this lager delivers a flavorful, crisp and smooth experience making it the perfect seaside companion! This small batch brew, created by the women of Kona Brewing Company, benefits the Pink Boots Society. An international, nonprofit organization supporting women in the brewing profession. Cheers!
