Received Medals at U.S. Open Hard Seltzer Competition

Kihei, Hawaii (October 4, 2022) – Recognized among over 250 applications from almost 80 hard seltzer brewers, Maui Hard Seltzer is pleased to announce three of their seltzers have been awarded honors in the 2022 U.S. Open Hard Seltzer Championship.

Maui Hard Seltzer’s Lemonade earned a Gold Medal in the Lemon/Lemonade category, while POG (passionfruit, orange, guava) earned a Silver Medal in the POG category, and Dragon Fruit earned a Bronze Medal in the Fruit Category.

“Congrats to the Team,” stated Maui Brewing Company President and COO Scott Metzger in an internal email. “Our seltzers continue to slay!”

A brand extension of Hawaii’s largest independent craft brewery, Maui Hard Seltzer debuted in January 2020 with the launch of POG, Citrus, and Dragon Fruit flavors. Over the past two years, MHS added Acai and Lemonade to the lineup. The spiked sparkling water with a hint of natural flavors provide a sessionable low calorie, low carb, low sugar, gluten free offering to consumers.

Maui Hard Seltzer is available in six-packs for single flavors and in mix 12- and 24-packs through key retailers and on draft at select restaurant, bar and resort partners, including Maui Brewing Company’s restaurant locations on Maui and Oahu.
