Highlights of Hawaii - Maui & Big Island

While the gold rush brought scores of treasure hunters here in 1869, brew hounds and food fanatics will find fortunes of a more gastronomic nature on this juicy 8-day adventure. Taste for yourself the West Coast micro-brew renaissance on brewery tours and at the California Beer Festivala mecca of barley, hops and malt. To make sure all those golden brews don't go to your head, you'll grab some grub at decidedly gourmet food trucks, classic diners and burger joints. California dreaming never tasted so good.
