Barely a week has gone by and I see Honolulu Beerworks is releasing some new beers. We had already planned an afternoon in Kaka'ako, so naturally we started at Beerworks. Coming in on a Saturday, it was busy and lively. The bartenders were friendly as always. At a loll in the beermongering, I asked for them to look for my koozie. Third time was a charm! They located it in the "rejects" section and I was happy to have it back for future visits!
The Koozie Club can be joined for $5; you get to design your sleeve, which is great in the open air environment of HB. Thanks to my best drinking buddy John for getting it for me a few months ago!
We had the Pālua DIPA (Aroma of resiny floral hops, slight murky amber color, strong sweet hop flavor, deceptively strong) and Mango Man Wheat (Cloudy golden color, dry tart mango overall, aroma of citrus, dry aftertaste). It was fun to try two starkly different yet refreshing beers on a hot day.
