Mehanas is a great little brewery offering a good variety of beers. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Every now and then, some of the brewers will come in to the tasting room and love talking story on the brewing process. If you are visiting Hilo for a few days, I highly recommend investing in one of their growlers... More

We stopped into this brewery and tasting room on a vacation trip to escape the crowds at the Hilo waterfront. Tasted Mehana and Hawaii Nui brews poured by the brewer himself, and chatted with the locals who came to refill growlers and taste the latest selections. We purchased a growler, there were also singles for purchase, as well as tee-shirts... More

Robert and I visited Mehana yesterday for a tasting. It's 0.3 miles from the airport in Hilo, so it's central and easy to find. The tasting room is very minimalist-there's no place to set. You stand in from of the bar while the hostess pours you small cups of each of their brews. The beers were as good or better... More

Great samples and interesting to see their brewing and canning area. Tasty beer, too! We picked up an assortment of canned beer and a growler to take back to our condo. They have a nice tasting room and gift shop.

I used to drink beer, and we heard we could buy it in big jugs at Mehana. So we stopped by, took the tour, and sure enough, you buy the jug, come back over and over and fill it up. It was very interesting how the brewing process works, and after the tour we got to sample all the different... More

I came from Honolulu just to sample their locally-produced beers, and I wasn't disappointed. Their gift shop & tasting room is very cool, and they have (6) excellent brews on tap to sample. My favorite was the Volcano Red Ale and the Southern Cross Belgian double red ale, both 4 stars out of 4! They also have t-shirts, growlers, mugs,... More

The other one is Kona Brewing in Kona. Each has its plusses, but let's focus on this one. I am a growler collector. The growler is somewhat plain, but the brewery sells you a new growler plus 50% off your first fill up. That is a bargain to be beat. the Volcano is not as good as the Kona LavaMan,... More

This is a little hole in the wall brewery. This stop and tasting will take all of 15 minutes. However, they are tasty minutes.
