Kona Brewing Co To Distribute in PA (Longboard, Fire Rock, Koko)

31 December 2011

imageWe’ve always enjoyed Kona Brewing beers, and I can still remember the first Fire Rock Pale Ale a friend brought home for us to enjoy, but Hawaii has always been a little out of reach.  Jump forward to 2011, mix in the Craft Brewers Alliance (Kona, Widmer, Redhook) and the fact that some Kona beers are now packaged in cans, and you have a great prescription to bring Kona Beers to PA, NJ & DE.  Beginning in about 2-weeks (Jan 12, 2012) Kona will begin distributing Longboard Island Lager, Fire Rock Pale Ale and Koko Brown (the 1st beer in their Aloha Series) in the lovely state of PA.

For the full press release:


Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii, December 29, 2011… Starting the week of January 17th 2012, the markets of Pennsylvania, Delaware and South New Jersey will round out the east coast distribution areas for Kona Brewing Company signature beers. The three markets will carry Kona Brewing’s flagship Longboard Island Lager, along with the rest of Kona’s portfolio, in stores and on draught. With these additions, Kona will be available in 30 states across the US in 2012.

“Interest in Kona has been growing for a long time among east coast craft beer drinkers in key markets like Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Wilmington and Camden,” said Kona Brewing president Mattson Davis, from Kona’s brewery in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. “Now we’ll be able to serve these and surrounding markets our craft beers from the northernmost tip of the eastern seaboard in Maine to the Florida Keys.”

By mid January, craft beer drinkers in PA, DE and South NJ will be able to enjoy Longboard Island Lager from Kona Brewing Co., as well as Fire Rock Pale Ale and the brewer’s Aloha Series, beginning with the spring seasonal Koko Brown Ale.
