Last year, the craft beer market continued its thirteen year upward trend, topping out at $23.5 billion dollars according to the national Brewers’ Association. In the U.S. as a whole, craft brew production doubled in the last 5 years to reach nearly 18 million barrels last year. As part of HPR’s ongoing series on craft brewing, Noe Tanigawa reports O‘ahu is tracking that pattern of growth.

The Honolulu Rail Transit Project is facing an April 30th deadline to come up with a funding source to complete the downtown segment of the 20-mile system.   As HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka reports, the political stakes seem high but the decision appears to be relatively simple.

“If rail is not completed it will constitute a real embarrassment to an entire generation of Hawai’i politicians and leaders.”
