Craft beer with a purpose

Sponsored by Alexander & Baldwin

HONOLULU (HI Now) - With over 125 shops and restaurants to choose from in the A&B Centers, there’s a lot to do and choose from. But if you’re looking for a unique craft beer experience, Grace in Growlers has got you covered!

Grace in Growlers is a self-serve craft beer tasting room, focusing on locally made; craft beer, kombucha, mead and cold brew coffee with profits going to support community service initiatives. Owners Holly and Tim Veling, initially began Grace in Growlers to fund their nonprofit work, Craft Beer With A Purpose, and partner with patrons to continue their community service initiatives (laundry love, sponsoring children in poverty, etc.).

In the last year and a half Grace in Growlers had opened Empty Elle Bagels, a Montreal Style Bagels shop housed within Grace in Growlers. Their bagels are sweeter, smaller, and denser than store bought, and are hand-rolled and honey-boiled in-house!
