Kua Bay IPA was brewed at the Kailua-Kona brewery in 2014 and quickly became a popular top-selling brewpub favorite.

“Ever since we first debuted Kua Bay IPA, it has been one of the most requested beers at our brewpubs in Kailua-Kona and Hawaiʻi Kai,” said Ryan McVeigh, Kona Brewing Co Brewmaster. “Up until now, it has only been available on draught, so we’re stoked to share this special beer with more fans across the Islands.”

On Friday, Oct. 13, Kua Bay IPA joined the Kona Brewing Company lineup in retail stores across Hawaii. Kua Bay IPA complements the brewery’s flagship beers Big Wave Golden Ale, Longboard Island Lager, and Hanalei Island IPA.

Kua Bay IPA is full-bodied with pronounced grassy and spicy characteristics, backed by a subtle sweet caramel maltiness.
