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.

This was the last brewery stop of our time on the Big Island. There's no tour to take but do take the time for a tasting and get a growler filled. LOVED the Porter! Nice girl who poured our tasting and there's some t shirts and souvenir-ish stuff to buy. Worth the stop :)

Fun little place to hang out for awhile. Tasted all the beers on tap and met some cool people. Picked up a couple nice t-shirts that they sold in the gift shop. The person behind the counter, Brandy, was very nice and helpful.
