Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have all spent many nights sleepless about the potential affects of what we are currently dealing with. We've been worried about our staff, what this would mean to their livelihood, what this would mean to our local beer industry and our comrades, and the industry as a whole.
We feel honored to be apart of the All Together collaboration started by Other Half Brewing out of New York City.
"A world wide collaboration hosted by Other Half, Stout Collective and Craftpeak to support the enormous amount of hospitality workers laid off during this difficult time."

First of all, I want to take a moment to thank our Hana Koa Staff, aka the "Chee Hoo Crew". They brought our dream of this brewery to vivid life and have added their own love and care. The smiles, compassion, camaraderie, and hard work have helped us to dream bigger than we ever have before. Since the beginning, I have felt so incredibly lucky that all of these amazing people want to be apart of Hana Koa.
With All Together, we want to give further than our own doors. We started an internal relief fund for our staff at the beginning of our shut down, and have been so humbled at our community and how they continue to support us. We feel that this opportunity with brewing our own batch of All Together invites us to expand our ability to help.
We are excited to say that 100% of the proceeds will be donated back in the form of gift cards to fellow hospitality and beer industry workers that have been laid off. We will allot $10 gift cards to our industry peers so they can get a free hot meal on us. We all are struggling, but we are learning how we can help more, because we are all in this together.
All Together is a reminder that we will endure this rough storm as a team. The nose is bright and zesty like fresh juiced California Valencia oranges. Juicy with a zippy finish, this soft yet dry IPA incorporates all of the new school hopping techniques we've come to love.
Cheers friends. Let's remember that we are all in this together.
