Maui will be the toast of the islands as dozens of craft brewers offer their wares during this month’s Maui Brewers Festival.
Thirty-seven breweries from Hawaii and the mainland are expected to participate in a festival that, in years past, has proved popular with beer lovers.
Craft beer is a growing trend across the nation, especially in California, where, a Los Angeles Times article on Thursday, the number of breweries grew 24% in the state from 2013 to 2014, creating a $6.5-billion economic impact.
Tickets, available online or by calling (808) 242-7469, include a commemorative glass that can be used to sample up to eight, 4-ounce pours.
General admission is $60 in advance or $70 at the gate. Guests must be 21 or older.
Admission for designated drivers is $50 in advance or $60 at the door. That includes free root beer but no alcohol.
Proceeds will benefit the arts and cultural center’s community outreach programs.
