“Fan-friendly” might not mean the markets you’d guess. Instead of choosing tourist hot-spots, the Rock & Brews team looked for locations that had, over the years, been the best on the concert circuit — rock-loving cities full of faithful fans. After putting down roots in the Los Angeles beach cities of El Segundo and Redondo Beach, they are now opening in Albuquerque and Kansas City this year.
And of course, Hawaii, because owning your own bar in Hawaii is living the dream. But you won't find a Rock & Brews in Honolulu or any ritzy resort. Instead, visitors to Maui’s up-country hippie village Paia will have a new place to get pizza, burgers and 52 different beers (one for every week of the year).
“It’s a community within a community. It has a charm and artistic personality that resonates with us,” explains Paul Stanley.
