About the speaker
Kyle Reutner is the General manager for KōHana Hawaiian Agricole Rum. KōHana Distillers is Hawaii’s first vertically integrated distillery where every ounce of rum is made with heirloom Hawaiian sugarcane grown on their own farm. In addition, Kyle is currently working with Dave Power and the owners of Feté on creating a beverage program in Waikiki. With his degree in chemistry and over fifteen years in the restaurant industry, Kyle is one of the few people that have worked in all aspects from producing spirits, mixing cocktails and creating hospitality programs for a guest to enjoy.

Life is short, eat dessert first. If you’re a gluten for sweets, your mouth will water to the descriptions of Laurie Sakai’s desserts — chocolate cupcakes with fernet frosting, ube crinkle cookies, mango cheesecake with a graham cracker macadamia nut crust. During the week, you can taste her Manoa Chocolate Alii Kula Lavendar cookie skillet with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream at 7th Floor Bar + Kitchen. She’s also a generous sponsor of the local podcast, Sleep Times Over. Every Tuesday, she’s serving up her confections to the audience at The Hi Brau Room. This is a breakfast not to be missed
