Maui | Stone Craft Beverages, the Hawaiian distribution arm jointly owned by Stone Brewing and Maui Brewing, has built out its portfolio and is now selling 21 craft brands throughout the island of Maui, the company announced today.

The company, which launched in February, sells a curated lineup of beers and ciders from California, Hawaii, Colorado and Oregon, refrigerated “through every link of the distribution chain,” from San Diego to its 16,000 sq. ft. distribution center in Maui to retail in cold trucks.

“The handling of beer during the distribution process is critically important,” said Stone CEO Greg Koch in a news release. “It’s with this philosophy in mind that Maui Brewing and Stone Brewing came together to develop a company that guarantees an incredible selection of fresh craft beers and ciders to Maui.”

Beers and ciders from the following companies are now available on the island through Maui | Stone:

  • AleSmith Brewing (CA)
  • Avery Brewing (CO)
  • Bear Republic Brewing (CA)
  • Black Market Brewing (CA)
  • The Bruery CA)
  • Eel River Brewing (CA)
  • Great Divide Brewing (CO)
  • Julian Hard Cider (CA)

  • Port Brewing (CA)
  • Refuge Brewery (CA)
  • Saint Archer Brewing (CA)

The joint venture, Maui founder Garrett Marrero told Brewbound in February, required a significant investment of “multiple millions,” though it was financed by cash flow from the two companies without the aid of outside investors or debt.

Stone also operates its own distribution wing on the mainland, Stone Distributing, which sells more than 30 brands throughout Southern Calif., including a number of those now sold in Maui.
