Think having a drink in Hawaii is all about mai tais and other fruity cocktails on the beach? Yes, but that’s only the beginning. While there are certainly plenty of bars serving those iconic cocktails, Hawaii is also buzzing with breweries with cutting-edge flavors, community-centric pubs, and a bevy of restaurants with delicious beer pairings.
