This place is tucked away in an industrial area off the main highway just west of the Mamalahoa Hwy (the Hawaii Belt Road). The beers are true craft beers and the brewery now is the largest privately owned.

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.

You can sample the various types of beer that Mehana Brewing makes when you enter their office. On Mondays, if you purchase one of their glass half gallon bottles, you can bring it in for a refill for super cheap! There isn't a tour of the factory that I know of. But, you get to meet all kinds of people,... More

Love it. Finally got to try and buy some Southern Cross. Fabulous. Also bought some Tsunami IPA, since I was there and all. Have been going there for years. Miss the Grandma who used to work the gift shop and pour samples, but she retired. She had the sealing of growlers down to a science. It's a brewery in an... More

Okay, you've tried Kona Brewing, but the best kept secret is in Hilo on the wet side (the bes side). Mehana combines two breweries to offer some of the finest of Hawaii's hops/malt beverages. I favor the Hawaiian Crow Porter myself. Nice little gift shop too.
