My second visit to Kona in 5 years, as well as Kona Brewing. The beer was tasty, and the expanded menu is a major step up from your typical bar and grill fare. The wait staff really hustles! The wait to get in can be a negative, but if you're not in a hurry, it's worth it.

This is by far the best brewery tour I've done. The beer is phenomenal, the tasting was generous, and the tour was really thorough. Make sure to book in advance! Oh, and make sure you try their homemade pizza!!!!!!!! YUMM!!!!

On my most recent adventure to the Big Island, I signed up online with the Kona Brewing Company for one of its two daily tours: 10:30am or 3pm. Although I thought 10:30am was early for a beer, I twisted my own arm reverting back to the old saying, “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!” After a brief walk-thru the brewery with our... More

We visited last evening. Great beer and great atmosphere. You will have to wait to get into the pub/restaurant. The food was okay, though we only had some appetizers. The beer is great but our wait staff is why I didn't give it a higher rating. Tiffany was our waitress and quite frankly, she was just not that friendly. Maybe... More

We have enjoyed this place in the past, and once again history has a way of repeating. The day before we scoped out the place with a walk and met “Big B,” or Brian. He told us a simpler way of parking on the complex. You have to go to a stop sign, turn right then another right to the... More

The Kona brewery is not giant but this is a great little tour that shows how this company does its craft. And of course there is a tasting after and that is wonderful! For $5 this is a really good attraction to visit.

The tour was informative, but short. The real treat is the sampling at the end of the tour. The place mats they put the beer help keep the flavors straight. We also each got a little taster glass to take home. Stay for lunch - it's delicious!

Enjoyed this tour of the coffee brewing facility. Learned a lot about coffee processing and even about some of the local plants on the island. Hey, and all the free coffee we could drink. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, as was all the staff there.

6 of us sat down and sampled 4 small glasses of beer with a guide who explained how beer is brewed, along with a placemat illustrating the process. It was the end of a "Taste of Kona" tour.

In truth, the tour itself is pretty average, it's just two rooms and doesn't last long. What makes this brilliant is the tasting at the end of the tour. The guide gives you a selection of beers to try and explains the brewing process for them. All of the ones we tried were fantastic. Stick around for lunch or dinner... More
