HONOLULU (KHON2) — American Craft Beer Week begins on Monday, May 16, which marks a week-long celebration of independent breweries and brewers in the country.

From pilsners and stouts to hazy IPAs and sours, Yelp has covered it all in their list of Top Breweries in Every State, according to their data.

Stewbum & Stonewall Brewing Co. earned the crown for the Aloha State. Established in 2014, this brewery’s story really began in the early 1970s when Joseph Garvey (aka Stewbum) and Thomas Jackson (aka Stonewall) met in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, while dating two that were sisters. They became instant best friends and enjoyed lots of beer over the years.

Stewbum & Stonewall Brewing Co. was founded by Darren Garvey (Stewbum’s son) and Eric Jackson (Stonewall’s son) as a tribute to their fathers’ friendship.

Responding to the news of being the top brewery in Hawaii, Garvey thanked his team, customers and everyone who supports small local businesses.

“We’re beyond happy to be among this list of great breweries across the country! Yelp reviews are generally all encompassing… rating drinks, food, and the customer experience. But I know we have such high ratings because of our incredible staff. The service industry has had one of the more interesting rides during the pandemic with rules and regulations changing almost weekly. Our staff had to be extremely adaptive, understanding, caring, and diligent. I am truly blessed and proud to have had such great people during these unprecedented times.”
