Good news! I don't see anything official on their website yet, but I just got an email response from Kona Brewing - I had submitted a message through their site months ago when I first found out they pulled the seasonals from the mainland.

They're bringing them back! They say the first seasonal will be the Koko Brown, supposed to be available in January 2016, with the rest to follow. So they'll still only be seasonal, but at least they'll be back.

We just got back from a trip to Kauai and it was disappointing that we only found one place that had the Koko Brown. Particularly silly when Lost Coast's Downtown Brown was everywhere. Hopefully Kona's going to get it together now.

The Tiki on the label of this can of Liliko'i Kepolo caught my eye while browsing at a local liquor store, and I couldn't resist picking up a six-pack to share with my cow-orkers at our weekly "Beer-thirty" Friday get-together. It's a "Belgian-style white ale with spices and passionfruit added." Surprisingly good, with exotic, well-balanced flavors. The passionfruit adds a little sweetness without being too cloying, and it really complements the hoppy, wheaty flavor of the ale. There's a touch of coriander as well, along with some other spices I couldn't identify. It was like a tropical cocktail in a can!

Sounds yummy...if only...I don't wanna be negative, but why-oh-why can designers not go any further than the first google page under "Tiki", and have to replicate and proliferate the awful "Part City" Tiki design in its infinite variations !!?

I thought the quality of the label left something to be desired as well, bigbro, but the quality of the product inside the can won me over.

The Kona beers are fun to have around the tiki bar, but I personally don't like most of them due to whatever hops they use (Simcoe or Chinook) - the Piney flavor doesn't belong in beer; tastes like you poured a capful if Pine Sol into your mug.

One of my current favorites is River Town (Cincinnati) Hala Kahiki. Like a Pineapple shandy - very thirst-quenching.

This is the most tiki beer that will ever be! Modern Times & False Idol collab. Very hard to find, nearly impossible to get for your home. Hang10tiki is lucky though, this 4 pack is for him

While this might not be super relevant I feel it's definitely a mark for beer can be tiki. What about taking beer and making it into a tiki drink, for example Toby Maloney's Tribute to Mermaids, it's little more than a fancy boilermaker but the ingredients could be found in most tiki pantries. Or Jane Danger's Dressed Can which is a cider (fruit beer) but it looks like a tiki drink from the rim up (image below) and uses traditional tiki flavors.

Good thread and contributions! Since so much of what we do is not really "authentic Polynesian," tiki beers and tiki beer cocktails seem to fit right in when they contain traditional tiki elements. I've never seen or heard of pineapple beer. Cool!

P - I was not a fan of the Avery. Too sweet and it was not very balanced.
