Aloha Beer Co. opens new quick-service counter inside Central Pacific Plaza
Sponsored by Central Pacific Bank
Central Pacific Bank’s new flagship branch in downtown Honolulu is home to many things: a reimagined banking experience that offers co-working spaces, a Starbucks Pick Up, and even Aloha Beer Company’s newest location! HI Now host Kainoa Carlson visited Central Pacific Plaza to get a taste of the new menu gran-n-go menu.
Like many businesses, Aloha Beer has had to shift its focus and adapt to the current situation. Prior to the pandemic, the local business was about to start construction on a new beer garden Waikiki, which came to a sudden halt in March 2020. It its place, Aloha Beer opened up an outdoor beer garden at its Kaka’ako brewery.
At the same time, Paul Yonamine with Central Pacific Bank approached Aloha Beer with an opportunity to open up a quick-service counter location in the newly renovated bank lobby. Six months later, the dream became a reality.
The Aloha Beer quick service counter offers lunch, beer, and pau hana options. There’s also a shared seating area in the bank lobby right next to Starbucks. So no matter what kind of meeting you’re conducting, you’re covered! Aloha Beer also offers beer to-go in growlers, and online orders will soon be available.
Aloha Beer worked with an amazing chef from LA who developed the location’s new menu especially for downtown clientele. To cater to the downtown crowd, you’ll find flatbreads, hot sandwiches, and salads. The top sellers so far have been the Italian Sandwich, Reuben Sandwich, Pepperoni Flatbread, and Asian Salad. All very meeting friendly options and served quickly for the lunchtime rush!
Aloha Beer has been seeing a huge demand for quick and easy food options and hopes to open even more quick service locations around the island. So next time you’re downtown, drop by Central Pacific Plaza for a quick bite or even a beer!
