CAROLINA TROPICAL IPA

IBU

IPA India Pale Ale

Driven by the love for the beach, surf, and of course, fruity and hoppy tropical IPAs, the Carolina Tropical IPA was born from a collaboration between our head brewer and assistant brewer. This IPA brings the flavors and aromas of the island life to our roots on the Carolina coast. The fresh pineapple and mango, in combination with the New Zealand Motueka hops, gives this beer a juicy tropical kick.

IBU

Coffee Porter

In the early 1900’s, a hard-working group of donkeys named the “Kona Nightingales” played an important role in coffee farming on the Big Island.. that is until they were replaced by Jeeps after WWII. They earned their name by the ruckus they made at night. Overworked? Lonely? Either way, it’s a good reason to try our Kona Coffee Porter. Dry hopped with 5 lbs of Kona Coffee beans.

ABOUT US

Crafted Toward The Sea

“Makai” is a Polynesian word meaning “toward the sea”. Even if you’ve never been to the Islands, you will still find the spirit of aloha at Makai Brewing. Our location allows us to serve the Brunswick Beaches of Sunset, Ocean Isle, Holden, and surrounding towns. Our knowledgeable staff serves an ever-changing menu of craft beer brewed on premise, such as the popular Carolina Tropical IPA brewed with pineapple and mango, and the Nightingale Coffee Porter brewed with real Kona coffee beans. We are proud to also serve non-alcoholic Kombucha from Panacea Brewing, and a variety of wine by the glass. 16oz cans and "beach-ready” 32oz Crowlers are perfect for the beach or to continue your “vacation” in the comfort of your home.
