I know most people are probably sick and tired of hearing about the Mayan’s and their calendars. But even annoying end-of-the-world people will want to try this beer from Maui.
“Maui Brewing Co. is very proud to announce the release of Aloha B’ak’tun, the last of four limited release beers for 2012. Aloha B’ak’tun, which loosely translates to “hello and goodbye to a calendar period of 400 years”, was brewed last Friday, December 21st to coincide with the last day of the Mayan calendar, which many believed was to be the end of the world. Of course, nothing came to an end that day, but MBC did say goodbye to some of their ‘ohana and welcomed new members to the team – Aloha B’ak’tun is a tribute to them all.
Aloha B’ak’tun is a Belgian style Stout brewed with Big Island chocolate, locally-grown chipotle peppers and cinnamon. This delicious stout is currently available on draft at the Maui Brewing Co. brewpub and is being canned for distribution to retailers by mid-January. The ABV on this beer is 7%.”
