WILK Friday BeerBuzz–27 Jan 2012 Kona Koko Brown Ale w/Mattson Davis

WILKFridayBerbuzz15Craft beer people are an amazing bunch.  The passion we all share for great beer, and the craft beer camaraderie that I find as I meet brewery, CEO’s, master brewers and Presidents shines through in what they do…but today we reached a new craft-beer-passion height.

It’s clear to me when I spoke with our guest today that he is successful for a reason.  Mattson Davis is energetic, but I give him even more credit that this energy and passion for craft beer even managed to shine through at 3AM!  Yes that’s right…Mattson Davis was nice enough to join us LIVE from Hawaii at 3:30AM their time.
Just a few weeks ago, Kona sent out a press release announcing they would soon be distributing their beer in PA beginning Jan 17th, so the timing was perfect to talk to Mattson.  Kona will be bringing us Longboard Island Lager, Fire Rock Pale Ale and even the first beer from their Aloha Series, Koko Brown.  Also look for the new canned version of Longboard Island Lager, a package that I think is perfect for this beer.

Mattson was also nice enough to join us in sampling Kona Aloha Series Koko Brown.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to try any of the Kona brews in the past, you’re in for a treat.  Koko Brown is an easy drinking, nut brown ale made with coconut.  As the label says it is the first beer in their Aloha Series of seasonal ales and I think this will be a very successful beer in PA….especially with an easy-drinking 5.5% ABV.  This is a great beer and I suspect it will gain a strong following in our area.  The caramel & toffee flavors, have a gentle backbone of nutty aroma and the wonderful balance of the coconut flavors, especially in the first few tastes.

We were also very excited to sample Kona’s flagship Longboard Island Lager. This crisp, clean easy drinking lager is perfect for anytime, but the new can packaging coming soon will also make it a great summer beer.

Be sure to watch for Kona Brewing beers as they hit Northeastern PA and try them for yourself. 

Thank you to Mattson Davis from Kona Brewery

, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
