Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii . . . Kona Brewing Company will be bringing its annual Liquid Aloha Festival to San Diego on Saturday, July 9 at the NTC Promenade in Liberty Station, Point Loma, starting at 3:00 pm. The Dirty Heads will headline the daylong celebration and 100% of the proceeds from beer sales will benefit San Diego Coastkeeper, a group working to protect San Diego’s inland and coastal waters.

Kona Brewing will be serving Longboard Island Lager, Fire Rock Pale Ale, and Wailua Wheat on draught throughout the festival. One Drop, Simpkin Project, Sand Section, and the Kalama Brothers will be performing, and festivities wrap up at 9 pm. 21-and-up tickets are $15 and are available at Brown Paper Tickets. A second Liquid Aloha Festival will happen in Orange County on July 23, 2011 with more details forthcoming.

This year’s  festival aims to be similar in sustainability values to the Kona Brewer’s Festival, which drastically minimized trash through numerous recycling and composting stations. After a full day of 2,500 people and 42 brewers consuming food and beer, the festival produced only half of a rubbish container, equaling roughly the amount of garbage produced during a typical breakfast period at a fast food establishment.

Additional event sponsors are 91X and Pacific Magazine. More info at: www.liquidalohafest.com.
