Aloha Beer Bread

After experiencing the best of what eastern Europe has to offer, it is no surprise that an enormous leap must be made in ingredients. A man can only handle bottom-fermented lagers for so long before he craves the dark, thick and creamy (grow up).

When the parental units decided to make a trip the land of Aloha, it was a must that they bring back the local brew. In Lahaina, Hawaii, next to the sugar cane train, Maui Brewing Company has been making craft beer since 2005 and, like most breweries, are committed to making the best brew for their community.

Although they partake in the seasonal brews, Maui Brewing Company has only four beers year-round: Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, CoCoNut Porter, and Mana Wheat. Today we will playing with CoCoNut Porter and adding complimentary flavors to bring out the best of this beer’s flavors.

Conclusion

Prepare your mouth for a punch in the face by chocolate and coffee flavors because that is what your are going to get the moment you take a bite. The coconut flavor was a little more subtle, but delicious nonetheless.

I recommend pairing a slice of Maui Chocolate Coconut Beer Bread with a scoop of mango or pineapple ice cream and a cup of fresh Kona coffee.

    I am a developer, cooking fanatic, and craft beer lover. However, lacking in baking skills, I decided to try making beer bread. Baking Brew is dedicated to cooking and baking with one main ingredient in mind. Craft Beer!

    Coconut Hiwa Porter

    "...like hot chicks on the beach."

    A classic robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky feel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut and hoppy spice to balance...
