Haumschild, who owns Lanikai Brewing Co. on Oahu, said the event was a great way to connect with fellow brewers and to sample their offerings. “Anything that gets people to celebrate beer is awesome,” he said. “As a brewery owner, I get to see all my friends and celebrate the industry. It’s an honor to be here.” Gonzalez is the manager of Nick’s Fishmarket Maui restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea.
