Whats better than eating buttery, seasoned tuna with a cold, refreshing beer? How about tasting more than 30 different versions of the dish and that beer being a frosty Primo, Hawaiis crisp lager still brewed with pure sugar cane? The Hawaiian seafood delicacy pronounced poh-kie (translated to cut or section) is a delicacy made from raw fish, seaweed and soy sauce.

Fifteen chefs will also compete for Best Poke bragging rights. Eh, brahheres the Hawaii of your gut dreams!
