Maui Gold Summer Ale wins Silver Medal at GABF!
Truly Local, Truly No Ka Oi
(Lahaina, Kahana, Maui) – Maui Brewing Co. is proud to announce their silver medal win at this year’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The Great American Beer Festival is the largest national beer competition that recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States today. The top three winners in each of the competition’s 75 beer-style categories were announced October 13 at the 26th GABF Awards Ceremony held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. Maui Gold Summer Ale won a silver medal in the Specialty Beer category.Maui Gold Summer Ale is a locally inspired English Style Summer Ale brewed using the finest English Maris Otter Malt along with Organic Hawaiian Ohia Lehua Blossom Honey, Maui Gold Cane Sugar, and Maui Gold Pineapple Juice. “58% of the fermentable sugars come from the English malted barley and the rest comes from the other local ingredients. It is then aged and dry-hopped with American hops for balance and spice,” adds Brewmaster Tom Kerns.

Maui Land & Pineapple, Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar, Manoa Honey Co. and Hawaiian Airlines are all big supporters of our efforts and we thank them for their cooperation on this fantastic, one-of-a-kind brew!,” says Garrett W. Marrero. “We’re proud to offer a Hawaiian beer that’s actually brewed in Hawaii (as opposed to the rest) and is among the highest quality in the world. Through cooperation and innovation Maui Brewing Co. microbrews are truly ‘No Ka Oi!’ (the best)”, adds Garrett.
