KIHEI, Hawaii — Maui Brewing Company will open its second Maui restaurant on Sunday, February 4, 2018 at its Kihei brewery location. The 8,500 square-foot restaurant will bring brewery-to-table dining to life while continuing to build upon the innovative, independent spirit of its craft brewing heritage.
The open-air, family-friendly restaurant will be located adjacent to the brewery’s tasting room at 605 Lipoa Parkway in Kihei, and will feature indoor and outdoor dining.
MBC Founder and CEO, Garrett Marrero states, “We’re excited to open the restaurant at Maui Brewing Company Kihei as it has been part of the vision for our brewing headquarters for a long time to integrate craft beer focused food into the production space. With a direct view of the brewhouse and distillery from the restaurant, our guests will feel immersed in the craft brewing culture. We’re extremely proud of our team as they have been working tirelessly to deliver a great experience.”
“At our Kihei restaurant, we’re excited to celebrate the brewery’s history, passion for the craft beer way of life, and fiercely local commitment throughout every aspect of our operations,” said Chris Thibaut, CEO of restaurants at Maui Brewing Company. “The brewery space in and of itself is like a work of art, so we’re really excited to build upon that through the new restaurant space.”
The menu at the new restaurant was designed by Angela Terry, Maui Brewing Company Menu Director, and is inspired by both island and brewpub favorites. Critically acclaimed chef, Terry Lynch will serve as executive chef at Maui Brewing Company, where each dish features items from local, master craftsman as well as in-house, made from scratch elements that emphasize fresh, local ingredients. Executive Chef Lynch has travelled, trained, and worked around the world and was most recently an executive chef and partner in the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group and a restaurant consultant.
With over 36 craft beers on tap, the list for Maui Brewing Company’s Kihei restaurant includes its flagship line-up of beers: Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, Pineapple Mana Wheat and Coconut Hiwa Porter – as well as limited release beers like Makawao Wheat, Waimea Red, POG IPA and Lilikoi Saison. Comrade Crafts – beers made by other craft breweries – including varieties that are not available on draft anywhere else on island will also be featured at this location. All of the beers offered on tap will be available for purchase in growlers and crowlers, which can be enjoyed responsibly outside of the restaurant.
Maui Brewing Company worked with award-winning WCIT architecture to create a dining experience that is enhanced by a craft industrial design that incorporates both the craft beer heritage as well as the rich history and landscape of Maui. The company’s passion for the craft beer way of life is showcased throughout the restaurant with keg walls and artful representations of beer ingredients.
Maui Brewing Company Kihei will be open every day from 11:00 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This year, MBC will also expand its natural soda offerings, add distilled spirits and canned craft cocktails to the brand. MBC is a fiercely local company and has remained steadfast regarding local production. The MBC team are stewards of their communities and the ‘aina, and curators of the craft beer way of life.
