Sansei and Koholā Pair Up for Special Dinner
Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar in Kapalua and Koholā Brewery are teaming up for a “tap takeover” dinner Saturday, June 4th.
As a way to welcome the new brewery to the area, Sansei, which took home silver at the 2016 ʻAipono Awards for “Best Sushi” and “Best Asian,” will host a five-course dinner, pairing five of Sansei’s food courses with five of Koholā’s beers.
Koholā Brewery opened in December 2015 and 100% of their beers are brewed in Lahaina.
Dinner seating times include 5:30, 6:45, 7, 7:15, 8 p.m. or later. Sansei’s regular menu will still be available that evening in addition to the below special menu.

Hāna pohole fern with grape tomatoes, jicama, and sweet Maui onions served on top of grilled Wailuku tofu with a lemon shoyu dressing and herb aioli
Honoa-P- Lani Lager
A spin off of the traditional Lani Lager, this beer is infused with the juice of O’ahu’s Dole Pineapple, adding a sweet, citrusy tang to the flavor. (5.2% ABV IBU: 37)
Bahn Mi Sliders
Marinated lamb, beef, and pork, with house-made pickled vegetables, cilantro ginger aioli, and hoisin sauce, served in a freshly baked bun with string potatoes

Kobe Beef and Parmesan Ramen
Pā’ia Saimin noodles, thinly sliced Kobe beef, soft boiled egg, shiso and scallions in a shoyu pork and parmesan broth
Red Sand Irish Style Red Ale
A light-medium bodied ale with toasted malt flavor and aroma, and a mild roasted character from the black malt addition, dry hopped to bring out the citrus and herbal notes (5.4% ABV 26 IBU)
Korean Style Braised Short Ribs
Tomato ginger relish, Moloka’i sweet potato puree, and spicy green beans
This German-style pilsner presents a slightly grainy, pilsner malt sweetness. The crisp hop bitterness comes from Tettnang hops. (4.7% ABV 35 IBU)

House-made caramel sauce, mocha ice cream, toasted coconuts, and macadamia nuts
Mean Bean Coffee Stout
