Visited on Friday 25/04/14 around 6pm.
Stopped by on the way back from Hana.
On the Hana Highway in the centre of the town, just off Baldwin Ave, the main T-junction and about a 5 minute walk from the main car park as you exit the town for Kahului.
Very good range by Maui standards, 5 or 6 beer fridges, lots of 6 packs but 2 fridges worth of singles.
Basic UK & European offerings (Sam Shits etc), standard HI stuff, plus various West Coast US offerings from the likes of SN, Mendocino, Anchor and others.
Prices were decent, I walked out with 3 Mendocino ticks, plus 2 from SN including Olivo Plum quad and had change from $15.
The guy behind the counter was friendly and polite.
Having scoured the supermarkets of West Maui for a few days, this place is a notch up! I also attempted to visit Pit Stop on 181 Baldwin Ave. Having simply scribbled the address down I thought this would be a quick hop, so whilst my wife waited in line for an ice cream I made a move! After 6 minutes I’d only hit 115 Baldwin Ave with no sign of said bottle shop ahead, so I turned back. Just a pointer for anyone else - they’re not that close together if you’re on foot!

Decent little bottle shop. They seem to have most of what gets distributed to Maui from what I can tell. The guy behind the counter was nice, and seemed decently knowledgable (maybe because he was a Portland transplant?). They sell everything by the single, which is nice if you are traveling. The prices were not as terrible as I expected considering the location.

Nice little place. A small but perfectly formed selection of beers. It ranges from the local micros tthrough Belgian trappists and Japanese delicacies to a couple of obscure Scottish numbers. The staff are pretty safe and know a good deal about their product. Reasonable too.

Easily the best option I found on Maui. The Lahaina grocery stores were fairly useless -- The Wine Corner had a much greater selection of Hawaiian beers and of mainland (and European) beers. Most things appeared to be in singles. Of course you’re paying Maui prices, so it isn’t cheap. Only real drawback is that based on my sampling, some of the beers didn’t seem to be that fresh.

Glad to have found this place in Maui. Everything is in coolers, many beers are available as singles. I found a number of Hawiian brewed beers here, as well as most of Merchant du Vin’s beers, some Unibroue, and Rogue. If you want beer while in Maui, go here. The place was hopping on Friday night!

As good as it gets for selection in Maui, standard Maui prices (Hawaii has high Liquor taxes) Greg the owner brings in everything he can get and limits his BS brand sales...plus the town is surf anf chill!!!

For Mau’i, by far the BEST selection of beer. Rogues, some German brews, Orval, etc. Hit this place up on your way through the Hana highway. Just about everything is available in single bottles. For an easy (and cheaper) way to try a bunch of Hawai’ian beers, this place is a must visit. Note that they have strange hours: their sign says ’Usually opens between 11 and noon, sometimes as late as 1 or 2. Closes between 5 and 6, sometimes as early as 3 or 4.’ Oh yeah, they have lots of wine, too.

Ratings are hard to give...since compared to where I live, it's not much...but compared to what you can find on Hawaii, ha...no contest. Lotsa Rogue and Deschutes stuff, most of the Hawaii micros, and a lot more imports than you'd guess. I'm a repeat customer.
