Pure Hoppyness, Pliny the Younger & Sculpin?

No! There is no beer that is tiki. However, the beers discussed are usually Primo, Hinano and beers made by Kona Brewing Co. & Maui Brewing Co.

If anything it would be Primo or Longboard (Island Lager). Really though, Tiki = lounge culture and lounge culture = mixed cocktails.

IMHO, a gin martini is more "Tiki" than a beer is.

I spent a whole nine weeks in Mo'orea drinking *only* Hinano, as it was the only thing available (besides Tabu beer, which is more expensive, rarer, and had a tiki on the bottle). Let me tell you, you get sick of that beer. It's like a watery, shitty lager after it being the only cheap alcohol available.
bleeeghgh.
The cool thing is that on Tahiti/Moorea, you can buy in bulk in returnable deposit bottles.

I know beer isn't really tiki but I drank mostly PBR at the bar that introduced me to tiki.

I've always daydreamed that if I ever ran a tiki bar, the beer selections would be the bottled Kona line, the canned Maui line, and then just Primo on tap.

A wee bit of a hijack here: how does someone from San Diego know about Pliny the Younger? People up here go nuts for it's once a year release (last Friday).

Anyhow, I think of generic asian/indo lagers like Bintang.

Russian River distributes Pliny all over the country... Damnation, too... and Temptation, Consecration, a couple others.

I can get them easily here in Denver, but I miss Santa Rosa. Not only for Russian River, but also that restaurant Flavor, with all the Moonlight beers on tap. Damn, I miss Moonlight beer. And then, of course the Sweet Spot with all the Lagunitas on tap, Third Street Aleworks, Bear Republic up in Healdsburg... oh great, now I'm gettin' all homesick. Thanks a lot.

I'm gonna go downtown this afternoon to Great Divide and drown my sorrows.

Not tiki, but Karl Strauss has some surf-themed beers:
