Maui Brewing Company
Beers from Maui Brewing Company currently at the Mayor:
Maui Brewing Co. microbrews are packaged in cans. Yes! Cans, not bottles!
The Hawaiian Islands host millions of tourists annually. The tourism industry is significant in keeping our state economically healthy. For this reason, as well as for the cleanliness of our environment and safety of all, cans make the most sense!
For one, cans don’t break like glass bottles do and it is particularly important for us to do whatever we can to keep our 120 miles of coastline, 30 miles of beaches, and other public areas free of broken glass! Cans can be recycled, are virtually unbreakable, and are lighter to carry and easier to chill than bottles. Also, key to the purity of our beers: cans eliminate light damage and the risk of oxidation. This will ensure that our canned microbrews will be flavorful, brisk, and satisfying.
The Myth of the Metallic Taste:
Bottles have long been considered the best packaging for good beer. This is no longer the case with modern aluminum cans because they are lined with an internal coating. This lining prevents the beer from ever making contact with the aluminum and ensures no metallic aftertaste.
