Last week while the show was on vacation my husband Matt and I went to French Polynesia. We flew into Tahiti, then took a quick ferry over to Moorea. What a paradise! Like Hawaii on steroids. There are definitely things in common with Hawaii. Like the heat. I was worried that would mean only light, flavorless beers. That was NOT the case! There are several brewers, making some excellent beer. I had Manuia, Hinano, Manavai and more. While I didn't see any IPA, I had lager, gold and amber. I didn't meet a beer I didn't like. Or a beach or plate of tuna for that matter. All of the aforementioned were out of this world good. I have a friend who was so impressed with the Matahua beer he wants to get a tattoo of their beautiful woman beer can logo. Air Tahiti Nui is now flying direct out of Seatac. GO...that's all I can say...YOU NEED TO GO!!
