Craft beer is just hitting the scene in Oahu. There are just a handful of local breweries (3 to date) that have popped out over the island over the past year. This one, Honolulu Beerworks, in Kaka'ako has done it right. They choose a good location (given the upcoming gentrified lofts), chose a modern-rustic open-air ambiance (which fits the local+urban scape well), created an appealing logo and brand, and most importantly they have good craft beer!
Here are the beers I tried. Number 4 was my personal favorite.
Of all the craft breweries on Oahu this is the most appealing for men and women and for locals and tourists alike--though I like that the crowd here is mainly locals. (I'll be posting on the other two craft breweries soon).
