Drink of the Week: Maui Brewing Co. Mana Wheat

Our September/October Beer Issue has launched, and with Labor Day weekend starting, the timing couldn’t be better to crack open a cold one. For this issue’s cover story, we tasked contributing editor Joshua Bernstein with creating a veritable beer map of the United States. Bernstein crisscrossed the country pouring over pint after pint in order to determine which brews would make up “The United States of Beer,” and today’s Drink of the Week—the Mana Wheat from Maui Brewing Company—is an all-to apropos nod to the great Aloha State. Brewed with organic wheat, malted barley and local Maui Gold pineapples, it tastes like summer in a glass with notes of soft wheat, tangy pineapple and a pop of hops. Of course, we know there are many great brews that sum up each state, so we want to hear about your personal home-state favorites. Which local brew best represents where you live?
