Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham is among the approximately three dozen breweries in Washington that are actively supporting relief efforts for Maui in the aftermath of the devastating fires that occurred in August. You can look out for Kōkua Project beers and enjoy them, knowing that both you and the brewery are contributing to this important cause. Below, you’ll find a list of Washington breweries that are part of this effort.

As explained in our previous story, the Kōkua Project is led by Maui Brewing and has garnered support from over 600 breweries worldwide. These breweries have pledged to brew special beers to aid in relief efforts. Each brewer is crafting its own version of a specific beer, with the proceeds supporting relief efforts on Maui.

For instance, Boundary Bay Brewing has recently introduced its version of the Kōkua beer. You can find it on tap at the Boundary Bay Bistro in Bellingham or at various other bars and restaurants in the region. Importantly, all proceeds from the sales of this beer will be donated to help those affected by the Maui Wildfires. The donations will be channeled through organizations like Legacy of Aloha, Makai Foundation, and Maui Brewing Co. Fire Fund.

Janet Lightner, Owner and General Manager of Boundary Bay Brewing Company, expressed, “To witness our craft community coming together during times of tragedy is truly inspiring to us. We’re motivated by the leadership of our dear friend Garrett Marrero, Founder/CEO of Maui Brewing Company, who initiated this campaign and continues to lead recovery efforts.”

The Kōkua Project represents the second phase of Boundary Bay’s fundraising initiatives. In August, the brewery collaborated with Walton Beverage to sell Maui Brewing’s Coconut Hiwa Porter and Hawaiian leis, demonstrating ongoing support for the community. These efforts raised over $3,100 for the Kokua Restaurant & Hospitality Fund, an organization dedicated to assisting restaurant, bar, and hospitality workers affected by the fires.

Boundary Bay Brewery is not alone in these endeavors. Here is a list of Washington breweries that have joined forces to participate in the Kōkua Project.
