Waikiki Brewing Company got its start When Cheeseburger Restaurants GM, Joe Lorenzen, saw untapped potential in the unused banquet room at his restaurant. As a home brewing hobbyist, his dream was to use the space to brew beer! With the help and support of Laren & Edna, founders of Cheeseburger Restaurants, the planning and schooling commenced. After having completed coursework with the American Brewers Guild, Joe is now brewmaster for the up and coming Waikiki Brewing Company. Waikiki Brewing Company produces a wide range of beers from pale ales to porters, and everything in between on their 7 barrel brewhouse.
