There’s more to the world of malt and hops than the bottom shelf of the corner store’s cooler. But according to a survey conducted on behalf of Visit Anaheim, only 50% of Americans can name the four main ingredients in beer, and only 45% know the difference between an ale and a lager. National Drink Beer Day, Sept. 28, is a perfect time to explore Honolulu's craft brewing scene and learn more about all things beer.

Hoodline has rounded up the best spots in your backyard serving beer, based on Yelp ratings and our own methodology. Remember to celebrate responsibly, Honolulu!
