Maybe not Tiki, but I just came from BevMo & this year's batch of Kona Koko Brown is out!




I'm drinking one right now. Pretty good! The toasted coconut aftertaste is nice.

Another beer that is definitely not...

This label gained some notoriety and as a result of the protests FW changed the name, and label.
"Our goal at Funkwerks is to make good beer for our customers. Our intention was not to disrespect the Maori people or their culture in naming our Maori King beer. Out of respect, we are re-branding this beer.."

Fort Garry Brewing Company Kona Imperial Stout.

Made in Winnipeg. Only available in Manitoba and Alberta, apparently. Haven't tried it yet.

Hey, that's actually a good-looking bottle! As suspected, you can find it at Sherbrooke plus a couple other stores in Edmonton:

Will try this summer, for sure!

I dunno, can a stout really be "Tiki". It just seems so wrong.

Most tropical or hot weather climates usually have lagers as their standard beer. Think Red Stripe, Primo, or any Mexican beer.

Dont get me wrong. I love a good beer. I like to try beers from around the world. But beer as Tiki? I dont know. Not raining on the parade. Understand this is just a fun thread. But beer is nothing special. I follow the Tiki-Ti modo. You can get beer anywhere. But a true exotic cocktail, Thats a true escape. Makes me think more on the lines of Tiki and exotic places. Just saying.

It's definitely not tiki. I've always thought tiki beer was a stretch, and a stout is certainly a far cry from a beer you might imagine quenching your thirst on a tropical isle. The only connection here is the use of Kona coffee. However, I like stout, I like the label design, and I'm going to give it a try. I'm just not going to pretend it's "tiki". Still, if I had stumbled onto this before Sweet Daddy T, I would have posted it, too.

Well, I have always been a big proponent of if yer at a Tiki Event or Bar,
you shouldn't be drinking beer.

But lately because of my weight and blood pressure Booze isn't agreeing with me much,
so I have been opting for 1 beer instead.
Now when it comes to dark or light beers.
I always tend to lean towards the darker richer beers.

Just like when I am having a Tiki/Tropical cocktail.
I wanna have a real drink, not something that you need to put yer pinky out while drinking.

Ah, but what is tiki?
CARIBBEAN rum made with AFRICAN sugar cane
SOUTH AMERICAN pineapples
JAPANESE fish floats
CANTONESE food
CALIFORNIA surf music
EGYPTIAN wicker

So why not a little SUMERIAN beer by way of EUROPE?

Here is my benchmark:

What would you be drinking in a Tiki Bar in 1959
The same rule could be applied to Attire, Decor, Food etc.
And that would be Tiki.

Anything else is just wish fulfillment.

Fair enough. But I think if you skim through the old menus on Arkiva Tropika (http://www.arkivatropika.com) you'll find all sorts of drinks on "tiki" bar menus: beer, wine, standard cocktails (gin rickeys, scotch & sodas, martinis, etc.) along with tropical-style cocktails. You could argue that what made tiki bars different than other bars of the period were the tropical cocktails, but that doesn't change the fact that other alcoholic beverages were available and listed on their menus.

Sure lots of other things were served at a Tiki Bar, Does that make a Coke or Shirley Temple Tiki?
If you take away all the Tropical Cocktails, Do you still have a Tiki Bar?

Then ask what makes a "Tiki Bar" Tiki? and the two things you must have are the "Tropical Drinks" & "Tiki" decor
Everything else just makes it a everyday Bar or Restaurant.
