The craft brewery scene on Kauai provides an exciting element to the island’s allure. There are two micro breweries, a meadery AND a local rum distillery to check out. All created, crafted and concocted on Kauai, these diverse elixirs are all well worth a try.

Taste the essence of Aloha in the form of bubbly beer, mouth-watering mead or refined rum! Here’s what we love about each of these establishments…

Adding a sweet, smooth and tantalizing twist to the craft concoction scene on Kauai, Nani Moon Meadery features handmade honey wine. One of the oldest alcoholic beverages in recorded history, mead is an ambrosial elixir with thousands of years of mana within each sip. Ever heard of the term “honeymoon”? Well, in ancient days a newlywed couple was given mead to drink for one moon’s length of time to imbue them with prosperity, fertility, and abundance. Hence, honeymoon! So, whether you’re on your own honeymoon, celebrating an anniversary or just hanging out with friends, indulge your senses at Nani Moon.
