Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii—On Wednesday, August 6, Kona Brewing Company will be featured in the hit Esquire TV show Brew Dogs in which the team attempts to create “The Ultimate Hawaiian Beer.” Now in its second season, the show follows two Scottish brewers around the US in celebration of distinctive American craft beers. Wednesday’s airing at 9/8 Central will be first for the Hawaiian episode and will feature scenes from the crew’s visit to Kona in July when they met with Brewmaster Billy Smith as he brewed local favorite and new mainland release, Castaway IPA. You can find the Esquire channel nearest you by going to the Brew Dogs webpage, as well as Kona’s portfolio of beers available across the US on Kona’s beerfinder.
Kona Brewing is no stranger to primetime TV as Hawaii’s largest and oldest craft brewery was spotlighted in Owner’s Manual last August on AMC TV, as well as numerous appearances on the Travel Channel and host to many film crews on the Big Island. See the full Brew Dogs TV schedule for more airdates of the Hawaiian episode.
