On March 18th, a popular Kauai brewery, Kauai Beer Company, will be hosting “Beers For A Cause.” Not that most people need a reason to have a beer or two, on this day $1.00 spent on every pint or goblet will go to help Kauai’s animals in need. The Kauai Humane Society and Kauai Beer Company have joined forces to support this important cause.
Kauai Beer Company, in Lihue, is a social place to be, with locally made craft brews, good food and friendly people. From the website we learn, “Opened in Fall 2013, the Kauai Beer Company has become a destination for residents and guests. Our neighborhood microbrewery produces artisan batches of high-quality craft beer, served in a relaxed atmosphere, making all our friends feel completely at home. The creative food menu rivals the brew and stands on its own as a reason to visit.” Hear about this family’s passion for making beer directly from the father and son owners:
When you go to this Kauai brewery’s website, you’ll see their own flagship drafts listed. Lihue Lager is a malty German style pale lager, with a blend of traditional and tropical flavored hops. Black Limousine is a light bodied, dark color with ruby highlights. It has complex toffee, caramel and coffee up front, a roasty finish and just enough hops to round it out. In addition, Kauai Beer Company sells six other seasonal beers which they also brew. These include Guava Wheat, Weyermann Pils, Golden Summer SMaSH, Citrus IPA, KokoBoPo and Tri-Centennial Triple IPA. Prices range from a 4 oz. draft for $2.00 to the 64 oz Growler Refill for $18.00.
Other drinks available include ciders by the bottle, wine, sake and junmai by the glass, kombucha on tap, root beer and sun tea.
As the video mentions, the food at this Kauai brewery is not to be discounted. Their food menu includes six appetizer choices, two salads, soup of the day and three entrees:
On Wednesday night only, Kauai Beer Company offers regular and large cuts of roast beef. They smoke a whole boneless beef roast all day. Served with scalloped potatoes, broccoli, small side salad, au jus, and horseradish cream, it is a special meal at $24 or $32. Service starts at 5:00 pm and lasts until the beef is gone.
Thursday night is Truck Stop Night where food trucks are invited to park in front of the restaurant. Match up the perfect drink with delicious food from a variety of popular food trucks: D Green’s BBQ, Chip Wrecked, Kickshaws, Craving Thai, Live Fire Pizza and Rafael’s Aloha. Check the calendar for which trucks will be at Kauai Beer Company on which Thursday.
Kauai Beer Company has a lot to offer in the heart of Lihue on Rice Street. If you are waiting for that late night flight, or driving back from the Waimea Canyon, this Kauai brewery might just be the perfect spot to stop and have a beer and a bite to eat. Enjoy!
