Maui Brewing Broadens Midwest Reach, Offers Limited Releases To Start

Maui Brewing Company will broaden its distribution footprint to 23 states, partnering with Imperial Beverage in Michigan, Johnson Brothers of Wisconsin in Wisconsin, and Artisan Beer Company in Minnesota beginning the week of June 12th.

MBC fans in these Midwest states will be able to purchase Maui’s flagship craft beers including Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, Coconut Hiwa Porter, and Pineapple Mana Wheat, as well as seasonal and limited releases as they are distributed to restaurants and retailers in both draft and cans, respectively.

“Once we launched in the state of Illinois, we started to receive request after request from their neighbors to the north,” stated Pete Scheider, National Sales Manager of Maui Brewing Company. “We’re excited to be able to offer 100% Hawaiian beer to Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan through these distributors.”

The timeliness of this announcement hits just as summer kicks off. For a limited time, Maui Brewing Company will have two additional beers available throughout the summer while supplies last. Both will be available in all markets where MBC craft beer can be found.

The often-requested Blood Orange Lorenzini Double India Pale Ale, originally released in 2015, hit markets on May 26th in 4-pack cans and draft. Brewed with local fruit and blood orange juice, this beer has a heavy citrus and hop aroma and balanced flavor. It is a deceptively drinkable Double IPA at 8.0% ABV and 85 IBUs.

In late June, Maui Brewing Company will be releasing Mango Hefeweizen. The Bavarian-style wheat ale is brewed with locally sourced mango, and targets 5.5% ABV and 13 IBU. The slight banana and clove aroma and tropical fruit flavors of mango are perfect for those sunny summer days at the lake or a picnic. It will be available in 6-pack cans and draft.

Maui Brewing Company is a fiercely local company and has remained steadfast regarding local production. The MBC team are stewards of their communities and the ‘aina, and curators of the craft beer way of life. Their beers have been recognized worldwide for quality and innovation.
