Have you tasted what's brewing up in Kailua, Hawaii? The 96734 community has had the pleasure of being a part of not only a terrific small local business, but a part of a successful creation that continues to grow and thrive thanks to the appreciative palettes of their customers. Join me as I take a minute to pop the top and taste the hops of the LANIKAI BREWING COMPANY.


Founded by Steve Haumschild, Brandon Cody, Dano Frerich, and Al Darling, LANIKAI BREWING COMPANY started off as a hobby that was shared among friends who loved brewing their own beer and is now a rising brand from the beautiful city of Kailua.

From those humble beginnings, Lanikai Brewing Company (LBC) has proven that not only do they have some incredible dreams (that became a reality) but that other people from all over the world would also share in their love for tasty, innovative, and well crafted, craft beer.

Since the first day their beers hit the shelves, I've been a big fan! It's something about the way they brew their beers that really show a great deal of care and quality assurance. LBC has a production facility in Kailua as they are committed to brewing and crafting from HAWAII. This facility is available to visit for anyone interested (hours of operation could be found below).

It's okay if you're not a "beer person", this small local business isn't just creating beer, they are sharing an experience with people from all over, who are open to the art of brewing and crafting. The LBC is a proud advocate of supporting their local community as well, if the artwork on their beer bottles look familiar, it's because it was created by local artisan Colin Redican (I'm a big fan!).

Aside from the creatively designed labels, well crafted beers, and constant increase in popularity of Lanikai Brewing Company, this member of the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, has also opened a tasting room called "TAP & BARREL", where you and your friends can gather and taste spectacular brews that are fresh and created next door in the brewery.

The "island inspired craft beer" mantra has smitten many locals and tourists alike. More and more people around the country are supporting locally made products and their dedication to these brands can be directly seen as small local craft beer companies grow and expand to find their creations in people's homes around the nation.

Will LANIKAI BREWING COMPANY be next to expand their reach to the rest of the world? Be sure to follow them on their social media to stay up to date on their growth, new flavors, and the latest industry news.
