Lanikai Brewing Company
The island way of life in Hawaii is heavily geared towards being green and recycling and reusing as much as possible to keep waste out of our beautiful ocean waters.

Local farmers are offered the pallets, spent grains, packaging and other items while the business also donates to beach cleanup efforts and utilizes reusable energy. At Lanikai Brewing Co., you can sip on your favorite brews while also helping them give back to the community and Mother Nature.
Beer Lab Hawaii
For a few unique tastes in Oahu breweries, stop in at Beer Lab HI. This stop specializes in small batch brewing so that each beer is crafted a little differently to offer various flavorings for a unique experience every time. Beer Lab Hawaii is, however, a BYOF or bring your own food establishment.
