Manta Ray Bay Hotel and Stone Money Brewery, Yap, Micronesia
The tiny island of Yap, located on the eastern edge of the Federated Sates of Micronesia, roughly halfway between Japan and the northern tip of Australia, is known mostly as a remote scuba-diving hub. The region’s only craft brewery, Stone Money Brewery, began in a kitchen, then moved aboard an anchored ship and is now located in the lobby of the Manta Ray Bay Hotel. Two fresh beers greet guests, a darker Hammerhead Amber and lighter Manta Gold. Both are true European Lagers (The Brewmaster is Swiss) and feature imported hops.
