After wildfires devastated Maui in August, breweries from all over the world stepped up to help.
Hawaii’s Maui Brewing Co. launched the Kokua Project, described as “one beer, brewed by many, to support those affected by the Maui wildfires.”
Maui Brewing provided a recipe for the “Maui Strong” session IPA, and Hook Point and others have brewed it and are donating 100% of proceeds to fire relief efforts.
“One of our ‘missions’ is to give back to our community where we can, even if the need is thousands of miles away. The word Kokua is Hawaiian for assistance or help, and we felt the people of Maui needed as much of it as they could get,” Hook Point owner Mike Sadler told Memphis Beer Blog.
“It’s only one barrel of beer, but we are honored to be part of this effort to help the people of Maui recover from the devastation caused by the fires.”
