Osena started in only 3 states, but in 2023 they will expand to 10 new states, and the Caribbean, as the demand for a true differentiator in “Beyond Beer” and “Better-For-You” continues to be strong.

Sweet pineapple, deeply savory miso, fragrant Chinese five- spice. These are the notes that make Poi Dog Huli Huli sauce sing. “Huli Huli” means “to turn” and refers to Hawaii’s favorite chickens turning slowly on sizzling spits. Huli Huli smoke is a siren song for people to line up, knowing that their fingers would soon be oil slicked and blackened, tearing into chicken flesh, seasoned with soy, pineapple, and a lot of smoke. Poi Dog’s Huli Huli sauce grabs all these essences and memories and bottles them – but the sauce is versatile. Use it to baste chicken, but also give mushrooms, vegetables, burgers, and more a deep, sweet umami flavor.
