Word has gotten out, somehow, that I like beer.
I also like Hawaii. So last Thursday, Heather and I were happy to accept an invitation to a secret pau hana tapping of Kona Brewing Company‘s latest seasonal Koko Brown.
Appropriately, it was at the tiki bar Thatch (2733 NE Broadway).
Koko Brown is made with toasted coconut, which was smooth and roasty. A little sweet, it finishes relatively dry, and the toasted coconut is pleasant, not overbearing. It goes down easy – Heather even liked it!
Koko Brown should be in stores soon.
