FO SHORE!

The delicious golden brew will transport you to the southern coast of India on the Bay of Bengal, where the surf faces a majestic complex of shrines known as the Shore Temple. Discover the flavor of tamarind, a sweet-sour fruit that is prevalent in Indian cuisine and gives this brew its pleasant pucker, rounded out by juicy tangerine citrus notes, and accentuated by the classic fruity ester profile of a farmhouse saison.

MAHALO!

The bright, tropical flavors of this saison are inspired by Kilauea, active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. We added a thick, orange mango puree right to the brew, giving this beer its ripe, juicy sweetness. Ekuanot, Meridian, and Huell Melon hops enhance the fruit-forwardness with aromas of papaya, sugary lemon and honeydew.
