Kona Brewing co. beer in Taiwan
While visiting a 7-11 in Taichung, I realize they have a special promotion for the month of July only. It's Hawaiian beer from Kona Brewing company! One of my favorites. Longboard and Wailua! Longboard is a light and malty island lager. Give it a try, one of my favorites. Wailua is also very special. Girls tend to like this more. It really has a special flowery island tang to it, unique to this beer only. Here's the quote from the Kona Brewing company's website. "Swimming in a fresh water pool at the base of a cascading waterfall is what we all imagine we would find in paradise. On Maui, follow the old Hana Highway and you will find such a place – Wailua Falls. This plunging cascade of clear water is the inspiration for our Limited Release Wailua Wheat Ale. This golden, sun colored ale has a bright, citrus flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch. Sit back, relax and enjoy paradise anytime." If your in the states, try this out, as it should be readily available to you at the grocery store all year round or at least it was for me in California. Outside of Taiwan and the USA, I'm not sure. But it's worth a bottle to try. If you see the Big Wave golden ale though, stay away from that one. I thought the only way for me to get this beer was to bring some back over on my next return trip to California. So now I have to head over to the 7-11 and stock up on this before the promotion ends LOL!
