By now everyone has seen those commercials for Kona beer featuring those 2 Hawaiians guys drinking some beer on the beach. I must admit that seeing that commercial reminds me of being in Hawaii: soaking in the sun, enjoying the weather, and just having a good time. Now you may not be in Hawaii, but you can definitely have a little Hawaii even here on the mainland with a 24 pack of Kona Brewing Company Longboard Island Lager beer. Sipping on a cold one of these will definitely bring back fond memories of vacation, luau, sun, beach, surf, and everything else good about Hawaii. As an aside, I particularly like the Wailua Wheat from Kona since I'm into hefeweizens (wheat beers) and it's even liliquoi (passion fruit) flavored, but that's only available in Hawaii and not on the mainland. For most people being in Hawaii is a rare occasion, but feeling Hawaii is very attainable with a can of Kona Longboard Island Lager and just a fraction of the cost too!

The Beach Where it Began: Thanks to a legendary local Hawaiian, Longboards have been a constant feature at Waikiki Beach for over 90 years. The great Duke Kahanamoku, father of modern surfing and Olympic Gold Medalist, paddled his hand-shaped, wooden board - a whopping 16 feet long and weighing 114 pounds - out into the surf to ride the waves off Waikiki. This behemoth was dubbed a Longboard and the ancient Polynesian sport of surfing was reborn. Today, in the shadow of Diamond Head, under swaying palm trees, Waikiki Beach is still the spot to learn the tradition of Longboard surfing. Here you can catch set after set of rolling waves until the sun fades below the horizon, and then it's time for a beer!
Kona Brewing Co. pays tribute to the big board of surfing and this famous Hawaiian beach with our refreshing Longboard Island Lager. This crisp, pale gold lager is made with premium pale malt and aromatic hops brewed in a traditional lager style. Like the last wave of the day at your favorite surf break, Longboard is a smooth and easy going brew that you can enjoy time and time again. Thirst's up!
