The Happiest of Hours at Maui Brewing Co Kailua
Updated: Feb 15
Find yourself on the East Side of Oahu? I've got the best daily happy hour in Kailua for you this week on the blog!
Introducing... Maui Brewing Company's newest location in Kailua, Oahu. Located smack-dab in the middle of the cutest shopping town, Maui Brewing has the happy hour dreams are made of. From 3:30-5:30pm & 9:30pm-Close you can enjoy $2 Off All Beers, $3 Off Culinary & Classic Cocktails, $10 Pizzas, 50% Off Select Apps every day of the week! If that doesn't say Aloha, I don't know what does!
Now, let's get into our last trip to Maui Brewing Co in Kailua!
WARNING: The following images will likely make you hungry.
We started out with some of my favorites from the happy hour menu, Pork Belly Bao, Calamari & Nachos! For drinks, we took advantage of $3 off their incredible craft cocktails & ordered the Cheech & Strong and the Maui Mule, made with their Maui Brewing Co Ginger Beer. Good ginger beer is KEY to an amazing Mule & Maui Brewing Co nailed it, especially with the eco-friendly paper straw.
The Cheech & Strong is a super unique beverage (& very strong). If you love tequila & old-fashions, this drink is their baby & it was made for you.
The Pork Belly Bao is as delicious as it looks! I get this dish EVERY TIME I go to Maui Brewing Co, it's just too good!
The nachos are super heafty & come with a generous serving of amazing guac, salsa & sour cream! My biggest pet peeve is naked chips & Maui Brewing CO passed!
Vegan? No worries!
This new dish is delicious & nutritious! The hummus was sooo fresh & the pita chips were cooked to perfection!
Now, I think it goes without saying that you can't go wrong with a $10 artisan pizza... But I'm going to tell you about it anyways because it was just that good. We got The Forager which comes with trufffles & mushrooms - my two favorite things. I love white pizza and this one is oh delicious, especially with beer.... But I mean, what isn't, right?
I love doing the flights at Maui Brewing Co because they're always bringing in new & unique beers! The most interesting one I tried this visit was the Graham Cracker, love it, as you can see from the twinkle in my eyes. Get you someone who looks at you how I look at a good beer. Oh and I later found out that my favorite beer of the day is ironically named, “Do It For The Graham," was this made for me or what?? Hahaha.
Their lighter beers are always amazing as well! That's why I love doing the flights, you get to try a little of everything!
Now that you've got some food & drinks in you, it's obviously time to get overly competitive at bar games. Don't worry, Maui Brewing Co has got you covered! They recently opened a game room where anyone can go in to play games during their visit! (Arcade games coming soon, what whattttt, so cool.) The room is also available for private party rentals which I think would be SO fun & may have to execute for my next birthday party!
You get extra points if you put the block back on while drinking your beer right?
If you've never played this game, you probably shouldn't... It is the most competive drinking game I've ever played. As you can see, this space is so freaking cool, I could hangout here for hours! (We kind of did.)
The last drink I want to touch on is my personal favorite, the True North. It's a blend of vodka, lavender syrup, pineapple & cucumber. It is literally one of my most favorite cocktails I have ever had, I love a refreshing drink. It's got a hint a sweetness with the crispness from the cucumber, mint & lavender syrup, a truly artisan crafted cocktail. True North gets its name because the two key ingredients are from Upcountry, Maui. They use Ocean vodka and lavender from Alii lavender fields and make the syrup themselves! It looks as good as it tastes, like everything else at Maui Brewing Co!
P.S. It's also on happy hour. You're welcome.
This is my go-to happy hour spot in Kailua for obvious reason! Maui Brewing Co also offers amazing live music entertainment EVERY NIGHT. Live music is surprisingy hard to come by on Oahu for some reason, so the fact that Maui Brewing Co offers it every night really puts it at the top of my list! Entertainment times vary day to day, so be sure to visit their website or give them a call to see who is playing & when!
Maui Brewing Co has locations in Kailua & Waikiki on Oahu & Kihei & Lahaina on Maui. I've been to all 4 of their locations and they all have their own unique vibe with amazing food, drinks & beer!10/10 recommend if you're looking to try some amazing locally made beer during your Hawaii vacation!
Aloha, see you next week for another of my favorite brunch spots!
