A Craft Beer Bottle Shop with Benefits

Inu x Village x DeKneef Can Release Photos

A huge mahalo to all who came out for the can release of our Coconut Hazy IPA collaboration with Inu Island Ales and artist Luke DeKneef. The cans sold out in less than an hour and we hope you are enjoying them in this amazing weather we’ve been having here in Hawaii.

We’re so stoked on the response from the Hawaii craft beer community and can’t wait to do it again! Here are some pictures from the event at Village Bottle Shop & Tasting Room.

Special mahalo to Robert Nakama for all of the photos!

Hawaiian Craft Brewers Guild Extravaganza

The Hawaii craft brewing community came out strong to help support our amazing local craft brewers and the Hawaiian Craft Brewers Guild. With over 20 locally craft beers featured on draft at Village Bottle Shop & Tasting Room, this was one of the largest showing of Hawaii brewed beers in one location at the same time. The event helped raised vital funds for the Hawaiian Craft Brewers Guild which represents our local brewers. The guild not only helps promote awareness about Hawaii brewed beer, but it also helps fight for more favorable laws and regulations for our small breweries.

A huge mahalo goes out to guild member breweries who not only brewed the amazing beers, but also showed up to share their beers with the crowd. Guild breweries on tap included Kauai Island Brewing, Kauai Beer Company, Lanikai Brewing Company, Inu Island Ales, Stewbum & Stonewall, Beer Lab HI, Honolulu Beerworks, Waikiki Brewing Co., Maui Brewing Co., Kohola Brewery, Big Island Brewhaus, Ola Brew Co., Mehana Brewing Co., Hawaii Nui Brewing.

It was amazing to see such a huge turnout to support Hawaii brewed beer and our local breweries. Big ups to Red Visual Magazine for taking the killer images again!

Village Oktoberfest 2018 Celebration

Another year and another amazing turn out for Village Bottle Shop & Tasting Room’s Oktoberfest celebration at Salt at Our Kaka’ako in Honolulu. With over 20 different beers on draft, jumbo sized brats from Butcher & Bird and lots of live music it was a grand night. We hope you got to try lots of new beers and a big thank you to Sierra Nevada Brewing for the killer beer and super fun stein hoisting contest. Time to start planning 2019! Prost.

Big shout out to Red Visual Magazine for shooting all of these incredible pictures.

Village 2nd Anniversary Party Photos

It was a beautiful evening in Honolulu as we celebrated Village Bottle Shop & Tasting Room's second anniversary. SALT at Our Kakaako was booming as we extended the beer garden into the courtyard and everyone jammed out to Nu'u Sing-Kahalehau. Big thanks to the whole crew at Beer Lab HI for helping us brew a special beer for the occasion. Village Idiots Hazy DIPA was a huge hit with the crowd and we couldn't have been more pleased with how this beer turned out.

We're completely blown away with how the Hawaii craft beer community has embraced and supported our vision over the past two years. Thank you for everything and we can't wait to do it all over again next year!
