While Hawaii may not be well known for their beers here in the Midwest, a recent visit to Maui Brewing Company suggests they should be. 'Maui' not only makes great beer, they also go to great lengths to be mindful of the environment. They currently have a solid solar energy program and are working hard to soon be 100% off the grid. And several ingredients are sourced from local farmers in a conscious effort to support the Hawaiian economy. We caught up with Director of Brewing Operations, Darren Moser, on a recent trip to the island's new brewing facility. We talk pioneering Hawaiian craft beer, expansion, and how the mainland has influenced their growth.
