KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii, — Today, Kona Brewing Company announced it has entered into a multi-year partnership as the official craft beer of the LA Galaxy. As part of the partnership, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, Kona Brewing Co. will bring the island spirit to Southern California with a Lanai-style bar at StubHub Center, the Galaxy’s home stadium in sunny Carson, CA. The “Kona Lanai” at StubHub Center will feature Kona’s core year-round portfolio on tap, including Big Wave Golden Ale, Longboard Island Lager and Hanalei Island IPA, as well as exclusive rotating seasonal beers throughout the year. The Kona Lanai officially opens on March 31, 2018, for the much-anticipated LA Galaxy game against LAFC.
“Kona Brewing Co. is all about getting outside in the sun and having fun with friends and family,” said Widaliz Quinones, brand manager, Kona Brewing Co. “This new partnership with the LA Galaxy is a perfect opportunity for us to share the aloha spirit with soccer fans in Southern California, and we couldn’t think of a better teammate on the mainland.”
Inspired by a traditional Hawaiian Lanai, the new open-sided bar is located on the south end of the main concourse of the stadium and will be a place where fans can enjoy a refreshing taste of Kona’s Liquid Aloha or take a relaxing moment to unplug, Hawaii style.
“We look forward to working with Kona Brewing Co. to give our fans a taste of the island life,” said Robert Vartan, senior director, AEG Global Partnerships. “Our partnership will allow us to offer our fans even more options to enhance their game-day experience.”
The Kona Lanai will be open through the entire LA Galaxy season and during most publicly ticketed StubHub Center events, providing guests ample opportunities to experience some of Kona’s Liquid Aloha during their favorite events.
