That's the slogan and the feeling after a couple of pints! This place is busy every night of the week. If crowds are not your "thing", try going for lunch or late afternoon. The pizza crust is a bit thicker, yet crispy. The ingredients are fresh. The cajun tomato sauce has a good zip and adds to the flavor of... More

The service here was excellent. Our server, Tiffany, was almost a mind reader. The food was excellent and so were the beers. This is an excellent facility and was one of our highlights visiting the Big Island. At some places you can tell that they care about what they are doing and this is one of them.

We went on the 10:30am tour and stayed for lunch. Collin was a great tour guide: knowledgeable, funny, super nice guy. Don't miss the tour! We were impressed with the quality of the food - they try and source all the ingredients locally. Friendly and prompt service was great.

My husband and I went for the tour and stayed for beers and pizza. The tour was okay - Rachel was very informative, but we really did not see much. Service and pizza were a great way to finish our visit. We returned on Sunday to have dinner and listen to the live music. We arrived early enough and told... More

We went to the Brewing Company tonight with friends. This was our last night before we were to leave and wished to talk about our week with our friends. It was impossible to talk with our waitress and each other. The music was so loud! The waitress did a wonderful job of getting really close to each of us to... More

Fire Rock and Big Wave are two of our favorite beers and we had to make sure that we visited the Brewery and restaurant while passing through Kona. It was a good choice. We already knew that the beer was not to disappoint, and the food and service was equal to the beer. Fantastic. They really worked hard to ensure... More

This is a cute, well-run, efficient, green mini-brewery. The tour costs $5 and there are 2 per day, at 10:30am and 3pm. Tour takes about an hour. Reserve your spot and pay in advance on-line. Each tour takes 18-people max, so make your reservation a day or two in advance of when you want to go. Our Tour Guide was... More

Went on the tour first at $5 a piece plus tax. Reserve your spot online in advance. If a cruise ship is in port, the tours will fill up. We went on the 10:30 one so we could eat lunch afterwards. Everyone was given a Kona bottle koozie. The brewery is not very big so it does not take a... More

For only $5, you get a tour of one of the most unique breweries in the world. The fee includes four tastings (of your tour guide's choosing) and a souvenir to take home. The tour was great and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the brewery and their unique brewing process. Afterwards, we stuck around to grab... More
