Today, Kona Brewing Company announces a multi-year partnership with the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP), becoming the official craft beer of the AVP tour. The relationship between AVP and Kona Brewing Co. enables fans to embrace their Aloha to its fullest potential while providing unique experiences to all guests. Kona will also bring the Aloha Spirit to each of this year’s AVP tour stops with the “Kona Oasis,” debuting at The FIVB Huntington Beach Open, May 2 – 6, 2018.
