Aloha Wingnuts! We recently got back from our 3rd stint at the Kona Brewfest on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was hard work but you know what they say. This is definitely a tradition that we are embracing. The kind folks at Kona Brewing put on a great brewfest at the cozy confines of the King Kamehameha hotel. If you've ever thought about going, we heartily endorse it. We also love to give our brewers a chance to rest their bones after long days in the brewery and experience the majesty of the Big Island. One of the many highlights was kayaking with a pod of spinner dolphins in the Keauhou Bay by the Captain Cook Monument. This was after visiting one of our favorite haunts, The Coffee Shack in the Captain Cook area. Some of the best views with breakfast that you can ever imagine. Imagine eating fresh papaya with strong local coffee, mango and avocado trees below and the bay off in the distance, while a nice ocean breeze helps put you in another dimension that can only happen in Hawaii. We've all come back renewed and inspired. Mahalo!
