bottle

Lucky for us and all of mankind, the world did not come to an end and New Years is right around the corner! New to the liquor aisle is Prevu, an all organic sparkling liquor. Although fear of an excruciating morning after restrains one from mixing dark and light liquors, Prevu has quietly combined vodka and cognac with success. Specially created and bottled in Cognac, France, Prevu is infused with raspberry, black currant, and violet flowers with a tickle of bubbly. Read More

Hawaii craft beer culture with Maui Brewing Co.’s Garrett Marrero

It’s been about six months since Taste Terminal spoke to Maui Brewing Co.’s owner Garrett Marrero (pictured on the right) when we last caught up with him at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO. Maui Brewing Co. started in 2005 with 400 barrels of beer, now, seven years later, it’s officially the only Regional Craft Brewery in Hawaii brewing over 15,000 barrels of beer per year. “It’s amazing to see how much we have grown. The biggest thing attributing to our growth is being truly local, being who we say we are, being committed to making our beer in Hawaii, always,” Marrero says. Brewers Association, a group representing small brewers, recently released data stating that the small beer market is on the rise, representing 5.68% of the volume in the U.S. beer market, up from 4.97% in 2010. For Marrero, it’s the quality trumping the quantity, “I think fans of craft beer care about where the beer is from, what’s the story behind the beer and how are you different, what sets you apart from the rest.” Read More

For David, it’s the first time Haven guests will have the chance to taste his brews. He describes the newly brewed pale ale as an easy drinking beer with a nice hop bite. Read More
