flavor favorite

A few years ago at a beer festival here in Atlanta, Mike and I stumbled upon a brewing company that we wound up loving. Once I tell you the name, a few things might click ... Kona Brewing company.

With 5 different flavors, some seasonal, the offering of Kona Brewing company aims to please just about everyone. While I like almost all of the flavors, there's one that I'm simply in love with and buy up as many cases as I can when it comes out.

Wailua Wheat Ale is an excellent beer to enjoy after a day on the water or at the beach (or even after mowing the lawn or playing softball in your "pau hana" summer league!). It typically pairs well with lighter fare like grilled fish and shrimp, roasted chicken, salads and Asian foods. Perhaps even a dish of vanilla ice cream. (from Kona Brewing Company)


We actually visited Wailua Falls while on our Honeymoon in Kauai! It was so gorgeous and flowing like you'd expect a waterfall to flow since it'd had been quite rainy in Kauai when we were there. Our puppy, Kona, is halfway named for this beer, triathlon and Hawaii in general. Our fridge is currently stocked with an abundance of Wailua Wheat to get me through the next few weeks!

Sounds great! My husband and I (eekk sounds so cool to say that) love to taste new beers. We didn't make it to Kauai, but we did sample some of their other local beers.

Hope you're enjoying the married life!
