We came for the tour, not the restaurant. We like Kona Brewery beer. My husband: Castaway; for myself: Fire Rock. So before the tour, we were early, we went to the bar within the restaurant and had a tall one. The tour was great, helped Immensely by the competent, very personable guide who whisked us through the various buildings, not... More

We spent a week on The Big Island with friends. We went to Kona Brewing Company for dinner. Tourism is big in Hawaii, right? Our waitress, Erin, was the most unresponsive and boring waitress we've had yet. The food was mediocre at best. Of course the brew was good but you can get that anywhere on the island. Find a...

Siblings stopped at this place several times to get drinks. The drinks were awesome and we went every day.

Their lunch of pizza and salad was the best deal on the whole island, not to mention the best tasting! Sitting outside was pleasant, service was awesome. Beer choices were varied and tasted wonderful! It is a must for ant time we go to the Big Island ;0)

We have tried numerous Kona Brewing beers on the mainland, so when my husband and I planned a trip to the Big Island, this was a no-brainer of a stop for us. If you like beer, and it doesn't matter if it's a pale ale, a lager or something in between, I would be surprised if you didn't find something... More

The beer was awesome (of course), but I was shocked to discover the best fish tacos in HI. I also got lucky and walked in just as a brewery tour was starting. Someone had just canceled so I got lucky with no reservation. The staff was great. I picked up an insulated growler that kept my beer cold for an... More

My wife and I got a beer flight and a half pesto, half shrimp pizza to share. We both really liked the Wailua Wheat ale, which is brewed with passion fruit. We were bummed to learn that it's not available on the mainland. Maybe next year. The pizza was good, but the pesto wasn't like what we're used to. I... More

We did the tour on the weekend when production was shut down so there was not much to see, but our tour guide was very friendly and able to answer everyone's questions. 3 different styles of beer to sample - which were quite good. Stayed afterward for a pizza lunch that was very tasty. Fun time!!
