HONOLULU - This summer, one of Hawaii's largest beer events returns to Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. The Great Waikiki Beer Festival, featuring the best of local and mainland breweries, will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016 on the resort's Great Lawn. Admission gives attendees 10 four-ounce beer samples from a selection of more than 100 beers, which can be paired perfectly with beer-friendly foods available for purchase. In addition to general admission, guests can also opt for VIP tickets, which include exclusive early entry into the festival the ten beer samples, two food tickets and hosted parking.

The roster of breweries ranges from local microbreweries like Honolulu Beerworks, Waikiki Brewing Company, Kona Brewing Company and Maui Brewing Company, to mainland breweries like San Diego's Iron Fist Brewery, Chicago's Goose Island and Rogue out of Newport, Ore. Also on the lineup will be samplings of more than 25 premium wines.  Food selections will include bratwurst on hoagie buns, kiawe-smoked brisket sandwiches on sweet bread buns and more.

To top things off, the Beer Festival will feature acclaimed artist Kenny Loggins - known for chart-topping hits spanning a range of genres from ballads like "Danny's Song," to silver-screen anthems "Footloose" and "Danger Zone." Also taking the stage will be the eminent band, HAPA, along with other local artists.

"We're very excited to have Kenny Loggins on our lineup this year and also to once again support Hawaii's Wounded Warriors with this year's beer festival," said Jeffrey Yedlin, director of food & beverage, Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. "And with the local brewery scene growing, this year's event will feature some newcomers, as well as some favorites from last year." 

A portion of the proceeds from the Great Waikiki Beer Festival will benefit the Wounded Warrior Ohana, a local non-profit dedicated to caring for our nation's injured military service members by providing fun, safe and healthy events for these wounded warriors and their families.
