The Asia Pacific is the world’s largest region for beer consumption.  That’s according to Japan’s Kirin Brewery.  And while Japanese beers are famous in much of the world, another Asian country is pushing ahead with exports. HPR’s Bill Dorman has more in today’s Asia Minute.

A couple of months ago, South Korea’s exports saw their sharpest fall in six years - tumbling by nearly 15% from a year earlier.

  This Saturday, the Maui Arts and Cultural Center is holding its hugely popular fundraiser, the Maui Brewers Festival .  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa found Hawai‘i’s beer brewers are taking the opportunity to get organized, and perhaps make more beer.

The 7th Annual Maui Brewers Festival returns to Maui Arts & Cultural Center (the MACC) on Saturday, May 16, from 4-7 pm.
