From Kona:

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii (June 28, 2016) – Big waves are forecasted to quench thirsts from coast to

coast this summer when Kona Brewing Co. releases its awarding-winning Big Wave Golden Ale

in convenient, easy-to-carry 12-packs of 12-ounce cans.

Offered for the first time in portable 12-packs

nationwide, the legendary Hawaiian beach

and outdoors refresher can now be easily

transported across the U.S., to all of the

barbeques, camping trips, beach bashes and

potlucks beckoning this summer.

Big Wave Golden Ale (4.4% ABV, 21 IBU) is the

beer of choice for cooling down a summer

day. Low ABV makes it the perfect session

beer for epic days and hot nights. Lighter

bodied with a tropical hop aroma and flavor, it’s easy to drink for beer lovers of all stripes and

complex enough to please the most distinguishing craft beer connoisseur.

Big Wave goes great with all types of summertime fare from the barbecue to the white

tablecloth, and pairs especially well with seafood, poultry, salads and light pasta dishes. The

beer’s golden hue imbued by Caramel 20 and Pale 2 Row Premium malts and a special blend of

Millennium, Galaxy and Citra hops, make for a bright, quenching finish.

“We’re really excited to share the ‘Liquid Aloha’ lifestyle of slowing down & focusing on what

matters with even more people as they pick up a 12 pack of Big Wave in cans and head into

summer,” said Sandi Shriver, head of Kona Brewing Co.’s brewery operations. “Big Wave is an

all-time island favorite and really the perfect beer to unwind with after a day by the pool, at the

lake or at your favorite beach.”

Big Wave racked up big wins the past few years, bringing home multiple awards that include:



2016 Silver Medal, Blonde Ale, Best of Craft Beer Awards



2015 Gold Medal, Light/Golden Ale, Great International Beer and Cider Competition



2014 Gold Medal, Light Ale, North American Brewers Association



2013 Gold Medal, Session Ale, U.S. Open Beer Championships
