Avery Brewing Co. to Release Momi Hiwa

Avery BrewingBoulder, CO — This Sunday, Avery Brewing Company will release the latest in its Barrel-Aged Series, Momi Hiwa, a 17.09% coconut porter that was aged in dark rum barrels.

Adam Avery’s goal for No. 15 in Avery’s Barrel-Aged Series was simple, “I wanted to make a beer that tastes like a liquid Mounds bar.” Momi Hiwa spent six months in rum barrels and was then moved into a steel tank where 360 pounds of dried, hand-toasted coconut were added. In time the toasted coconut flavor infused with the beer and a significant amount of sugar helped to achieve the liquid candy bar inspiration. Momi Hiwa has rich, dark chocolate notes accented by aromatic toasted coconut, and Avery’s brewers wanted residual sugar to play a big part in the taste and feel of the beer. “Often high gravity beers are described as ‘dessert beers’ to be treated like a port or dessert wine, but Momi Hiwa goes past that. It IS dessert. It’s all you need,” said Avery’s Chief Barrel Herder Andy Parker.

Pronounced “Mo-mee Hee-vah,” the name was inspired by Adam’s good friend Garrett Marrero of Maui Brewing Co. and his “Black Pearl,” a version of Maui’s CoCoNut Porter aged in rum barrels. As homage to Garrett and this unique beer Adam enjoyed on a visit to Maui’s tasting room, Avery wanted to translate “Black Pearl” into Hawaiian as well as into his own inspired creation. Thankfully, Garrett was happy with both the idea and to help with the language translation.
