Maui Brewing Co. Launches First Limited Release of the New Year

Kihei, Hawaii – Delighted to kick-off a new year, Maui Brewing Company introduces their latest release, Pineapple Chi Chi Nitro Golden Ale. The frothy Golden Ale was brewed with toasted coconut, pineapple juice, lactose milk sugar, and infused with nitrogen to add a velvety and creamy finish.

The key to a great Chi Chi is in the pineapple juice which came from Maui’s upcountry Haliimaile Pineapple Company. The hand-toasted coconut, local pineapple juice and lactose packs a big punch of tropical flavor in this sessionable beer with an ABV of 4.8% and 20 IBUs. MBC’s Quality Control Manager, Greg Knox, indicates, “The fruit is the centerpiece of this beer. We did everything we could to ensure the coconut provided a creamy mouthfeel and that the local pineapple flavor and sweetness were showcased. It is as much of a treat as any tropical drink, well-deserving of a parasol and a beach blanket.”

Each MBC location will offer Pineapple Chi Chi on draft, or in to-go purchases of 6-packs, crowlers, or growlers. It will also be made available in Hawaii and all mainland markets where independently owned Maui Brewing Company craft beer can be purchased. Not in your area?

Their beers have been recognized worldwide for quality and innovation. For more information, visit or follow @MauiBrewingCo on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
