Smooth and subtle, this beer has the all tropical fruit flavours that will work wonderfully with pokē, the Hawaiian raw fish salad or go retro and pair it with a classic prawn cocktail. It’s also good to complement the flavours in a pina colada cheesecake and a pineapple upsidedown cake. One of our brewers also suggested heading to the pick and mix bar for some fruit salad penny sweets and a bag of marshmallows – we’ll leave that up to you!
