Maui Brewers Festival – 2011


Maui Brewers Festival 2011Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC), Maui Brewing Co. and Hawai`i Nui Brewing are pleased to present the 3rd Annual Maui Brewers Festival on Saturday, May 14, 2011 from 3 to 7 pm. It will be held in the new Yokouchi Pavilion and A&B Amphitheater area at the MACC in Kahului. The event is a fundraiser for The Center with net proceeds benefiting its arts and educational programs for students, seniors and the Maui community.

Showcasing the best hand-crafted and imported beers made in Hawai`i, California, the Pacific Northwest and beyond, Maui Brewers Festival will feature 28 breweries:
Anacapa Brewing Co., Anderson Valley, Ballast Point Brewing Co., Bear Republic, Big Island Brewhaus, Blue Moon, Boston Beer Company, Caldera Brewing Co., Coronado Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery, Hawai`i Nui Brewing, Kona Brewing Co., Lost Coast Brewery, Maui Brewing Co., Moylan’s Brewing Co., Pizza Port, Primo Brewing & Malting Co., Pyramid, Redhook Ale Brewery, Redstone Meadery, Rogue, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing, Shocktop, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Stone Brewing Co., Uncommon Brewers, Waimea Brewing and Widmer.

Garrett Marrero, founder and owner of Maui Brewing Co., comments: “The breweries invited to participate in the festival were chosen because of their commitment to making craft beer where quality, flavor and uniqueness comes before cheaper, bland and mass-produced beers. They all play an excellent role in the resurgence of great beer in America. With two successful festivals under our belt, Maui Brewers Festival has made a name for itself and is here to stay.”

Festival attendees will enjoy a leisurely day of sampling a wide variety of craft beers along with island style dishes from local purveyors such as 808 Bistro, Alexander’s Fish, Aloha Events Catering, Cake Bakery, Famous Dave’s, Flatbread & Company, Food for the Soul, Fred’s Mexican Cafe, Maui Brewing Co. Brew Pub, Maui Catering Company, Maui Culinary Academy, Maui Tacos, Whole Foods, Who Cut the Cheese, Wow-Wee Maui’s Grill and Zia Maria Gelato. On stage, the entertainment line-up includes some of Maui’s hottest bands and singers like ANUHEA and KANEKOA with Vince Esquire. There will also be logo merchandise for sale from Maui Brewers Festival and individual breweries as well as tons of prize giveaways.
