Aloha! That’s how most conversations begin at the Kona Brewing Company. It’s also how many of them end. But “Aloha” doesn’t just mean hello and goodbye and love and welcome. It means more than a word can express. It’s a feeling. A way of life. “Aloha” is the idea that we are all connected to everyone and everything around us, and that true joy is found in respecting this connection. And it’s in this aloha spirit that the Kona Brewing Company was founded back in 1994 by Cameron Healy and his son Spoon Khalsa. They combined their love of Hawaii and its pristine, natural beauty with their fondness for delicious local brews, and lucky for us, their dream lives on more than 20 years later. Flash forward to today, Kona Brewing has become one of the best-selling craft beer brands in the world.

  Big Wave is a lighter-bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor—smooth, easy-drinking, and refreshing. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer, and its special blend of hops provides a bright, quenching finish that makes it a struggle to not grab another one. Sixteen-ounce cans are now available at the Grille & Tiki Bar.

Food pairings:

Big Wave’s lighter body and bright hop aroma and taste make it a natural choice to enjoy with seafood, poultry, salads, and light pasta dishes.
