3rd Annual Honolulu Brewers Festival
To Our Supporters & Participants of the Honolulu Brewer’s Festival,
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the postponement of our annual festival scheduled for April 2017.
We applied for a park license from the state of Hawaii on January 16, 2017 and submitted the required documents and Certificate of Insurance and were approved for the festival. A few days ago, despite approval, we learned that the State of Hawaii is requesting that we apply for an additional permit and meet an increased insurance requirement before they will issue the final permit.
Policies/requirements are consistently changing since we first got our approval last month and making the permitting more complicated.
Unfortunately, without an approved permit and now having to go through the process again, the timeline is uncertain. We feel it is too risky and unfair to our guests to sell tickets and to our brewers and restaurants to begin preparing.
While Troy and Lisa, our organizers are very challenged, they are also determined to bring everyone together to celebrate beer!
An update will be provided if the festival will be held on another date, if possible.
Mahalo for your wonderful support and understanding!
