Kona Big Wave Opens The Aloha House to Fans, Providing Chance to Travel to Top Destinations for an Ultimate Moment of Island Refreshment


NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 4, 2024 — Kona Big Wave, the refreshing island-style premium lager that embodies the spirit of aloha, is kicking off summer and bringing the aloha to fans by opening the doors to the ultimate vacation destination: The Aloha House. With two locations, set in the beautiful Florida Keys and picturesque, Park City, Utah, the Kona Big Wave “Aloha House” is a destination that brings people together, fosters connections and embraces the true spirit of Aloha - showing how one sip of liquid aloha can transport you to easy-going island living, no matter the place or season.  

“At Kona Big Wave, we always say the aloha spirit is not a specific location or setting, but a mindset - one that our beer can immediately deliver with its easy-drinking island refreshment,” said Meredith Ruskin, VP of Marketing for Kona Big Wave. “The Kona Big Wave Aloha House serves as a celebration and physical manifestation of the aloha spirit, and we’re so excited to invite fans into this one-of-a-kind experience that delivers adventure and meaningful connection with your ohana over ice-cold liquid aloha.”

Throughout the summer, Kona Big Wave fans across mainland U.S. can visit to enter the Kona Getaways Sweepstakes for a chance to win a stay at one of Kona Big Wave’s Aloha Houses or other prizes. Four grand prize winners will be granted a three-night stay and transportation credit for them and three of their friends. Once there, visitors will experience the following highlights of The Aloha House:

- A fridge and aloha bar fully stocked with necessities for the stay

- Access to everything you need for outdoor adventure, whether it’s kayaks, paddleboards and snorkel gear right in your backyard, or free access to Park City and Canyons Ski Resorts

- Views of some of the most beautiful places the country has to offer, giving visitors just one more way to connect with each other and the world around them 

The Kona Big Wave Aloha House launches as the beer brand brings the aloha to destination markets across the country from Huntington Beach to Park City to Virginia Beach, and is part of the brand’s “Bring the Aloha” creative platform that was introduced last year to celebrate the shared bonds that connect us to one another and the natural world.
