Kona Brewing Company is ready to launch its Lemongrass Luau beer on the mainland, just in time for summer.

Lemongrass Luau will be available in six-packs and on draft as part of Kona Brewing Co.’s Aloha Series, widely available throughout the U.S. mainland.

The Aloha Series presents seasonal craft brews made with island-inspired ingredients.

“There’s an unmistakable energy when the weather changes and people swap long sleeves for tank tops,” said Sandi Shriver, head of Kona Brewing Co.’s brewery operations. “We wanted to bottle that seasonal excitement in a blonde ale that really captures the ready-to-celebrate vibe of spring with an invigorating pop of flavor and a nice smooth finish.”

Luau, meaning party or feast in Hawaiian, was selected as the brew’s name as part of its “promise to keep the party lively with a unique flavor profile that flights taste buds out of the winter doldrums with a bright hint of lemongrass and fresh ginger,” company officials explain.


Kona Brewing Co. suggests grilled fish, chicken, pork, and vegetables as ideal pairings.
