Written by Eddie Kamae to capture those good-time moments in Sam Li’a Kalāinaina’s life when the community would get together at the social hall to sing, play music, talk story, dance, laugh and drink ʻōkolehao. The story shares some of these moments along with the history of ʻōkolehao and information Sam shared with Eddie about the art of distilling this distinctly Hawaiian liquor.
