DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM Honolulu Beerworks, a brewpub at 328 Cooke St. in Kakaako headed by Geoff Seideman, is expected to open later this month. It’s the first in a string of brewpub debuts in Hawaii as the state catches up to the nationwide boom in smaller-scale craft brewing. Seideman is seen here pouring some of his Sheltered Bay IPA that he will test for specific gravity.
