Today is the 40th birthday — the Big 4-O — of Garrett Marrero, co-founder and brewmaster of Maui Brewing. His brewery started as a brewpub on the island in 2005, and quickly expanded to include a small production brewery, but more recently Maui built a much, much bigger brewery in Kihei, which is centrally located, and not too far from the airport. I’ve known Garrett for a number of years, but finally had the chance to visit his breweries on Maui during a family vacation there during Thanksgiving week a coulpe of years ago. Garrett’s a great person and terrific brewer, giving you more than enough reasons to visit him on the island of Maui. Join me in wishing Garrett a very happy birthday.
