Here Here ATP!! I agree totaly. Its like as if a ordinary bar that serves beer&wine and added bamboo and thatch. Would you classify that as a Tiki bar? No! Its needs the rest as ATP mentioned. TIKIS, and great exotic cocktails. Just as Donn Beach(Don the Beachcombers), Vic Bergeron(Trader Vics), and other mid-century Tiki bars set out to do. Other drinks were just added to be there to satisfy the occasional patron who did not want a tropical cocktail. Not trying to step on toes, but thats just the way I see it.

Reminds me of my coworker that goes to one of the best brew pubs in the nation and gets upset that they don't have Bud Lite.

Derailed. Whether historically, as in old ads, or more recently in the form of coconut and Kona porters, there are brands of beer that have tried to associate themselves with tiki culture. It's worth exploring, as long as we keep the discussion relevant. Maybe we could put the debate of whether beer is tiki to bed and get back to the topic at hand? I promise no one is going to start to believe that beer is somehow more "tiki" than cocktails.

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.



That may be true today, but was not always true. "Foreign Extra Stout" also known as "Tropical Stout" was a mainstay of thirsty ex-pats in tropical climes. Originally it was exported from the UK at a hefty proof to survive the journey, but it was eventually made in the home countries themselves.

A few examples:

Dragon Stout from Jamaica
Strong Back Stout from the Bahamas
Stallion Stout from Barbados
Royal Extra Stout from Trinidad

Also Guiness Foreign Extra, which is brewed in multiple places in the Carribean.

Not sure if it's tiki, but it's definitely part of the larger tropical drink culture.

Ohana Brewing Company is a new brewer in Los Angeles. The guy that owns it is only 24.

Somebody should offer their graphic design skills to design a new logo, for a fee, of course.

My thoughts:

1) Having a tiki cocktail in my (non tiki) living room... Tiki, Im enjoying a tiki drink.

2) Having a beer in my living room... Not tiki.

3) Having a bottle of beer with a wahine / etc on it (or from a 'tiki' location) in my lounge... Not tiki but cause for comment, Id like to try one

4) Having a sipping rum in my living room... Im enjoying / appreciating the rum & rum = tiki... but that's a bit of a stretch. Not tiki.

However:

5) Having a tiki drink in a tiki environment... The most tiki (!), Im enjoying a tiki drink in a tiki environment.

6) Having a beer / sipping rum in a tiki environment... Tiki, Im enjoying the environment.

7) Having a bottle of beer with a wahine / etc on it (or from a 'tiki' location) in a tiki environment... As tiki as thought no 6 + 1! I still want to try one!

For your consideration:

This beer looks like it is trying to be tiki. I didn't try it though, rather have a Navy Grog

Tried some of this in Lola Los (chain of 7/8 tiki bars in the UK):



Not a regular beer, kind of like coconut fruity shandy - worth trying & would be easy to drink on a hot day

Probably a good decision there, Luna. Some things are all show and no "go."

I wasn't sure where to post this, but this seems like the most recent beer thread.

In case anyone else has been searching for this year's batch of Kona Koko Brown, you can stop wasting your time.

It'll no longer be available on the mainland at all. It's now only available on tap in the state of Hawaii. It's not being bottled or canned, and they apparently don't even have it consistently in their own restaurants. Same with the Pipeline Porter (Wailua Wheat is also now Hawaii-only, but I certainly won't miss that.)
http://konabrewingco.com/about/contact-us/


I'm gonna have take all the money we would've spent on Koko Brown, book a trip, and spend it at Kauai Beer Co. instead.



Side note: I actually like the non-Imperial version of Knee Deep Tanilla.

OMG, this. I check CONSTANTLY to see if variety packs carry it and am constantly disappointed. IPA can suck it. It makes sense that you haven't seen it since summer of 2013 because that's when I first and last had it as well, for my tiki-themed baby shower. Seriously bummed about it and can't quite figure out Kona's explanation,

"As a result, Wailua Wheat won’t be hitting the mainland this year but it will be available year round in package and on draft in Hawaii. We aren’t legally set up to ship Wailua outside Hawaii this year so the only place to get it is on the islands. Sounds like the perfect excuse for a trip, right?"

Not legally set up? How can one be legally set up to ship other varieties of beer but not one in particular?

I've been told that all Kona's brews on the mainland are brewed under license at Widmer Brothers Brewery in Portland. Last summer I was told the Koko Brown would no longer be made on the mainland, disappointing because it sold well on draft, the Pipeline Porter did alright also. If you can ever find their Lavaman Red in Hawaii try it, it's very tasty, hoppy and better than the IPA, that's one they should make on the mainland.

p.s. both Koko Brown & Pipeline Porter were sold as seasonal's on the mainland.

aloha
