Doesn’t an icy cold, onolicious, Hawai’i brewed Primo Beer sound perfect right about now? Well, look no further! For nearly 10 years, Primo beer was only available on the islands. Due to popular demand, Primo Island Lager is available in select bars and retail locations throughout California. (list below)
Though, there have been some changes to its flavor – it was updated to be “more in line with today’s beer consumer.” With the help of big wave champions, Shane Dorian and Keoni Watson, and a handful of Hawaiian watermen and kama’aina, brewmasters Phil Markowski and Bob Newman derived Primo’s unique recipe – 95% malt, 5% raw Hawaiian cane sugar, and two distinct varieties of noble hops.
Absent from the beer market since 1997, some of the thanks for Primo’s return to the mainland belongs to Primo owner, the Pabst Brewing Company. The mainland launch is accompanied with a commitment to support the environment and culture of Hawai’i, with a portion of all Primo sales going towards the Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation and the Hawaiian chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.
