What a great way to spend a rainy afternoon in Kona. Rachel, our tour guide, was amazing. She was full of information about the brewery and really made the tour fun. We sampled four different beers at the end, and even this non-beer drinker enjoyed a few of them. We had a late lunch after our tour, and it was... More

It was fun to learn the here on the mainland Redhook Brewing (here in our neck of the woods) does their bottling for them. When... More

From the hostess all the way to the tour operator, the service was pleasant. I tasted about 7 different types of beer and the Kona Brown was BY FAR my favorite. I need to order some online!! Lol...lol. Good food, good service and good beer. Can't go wrong like that!!

Tour was very cool . . . Freezing even for a short time. Most people loved that part in the frig. Our guide was very good at what she did. The best part was last when we got to taste 4 different beers. We met a nice couple from Germany and had a lovely time talking to them. We did... More

We had a great afternoon tour of the brewery that ending up in the tasting room. We were treated to tastes of four of the brewery favorites. The tour guide was very well informed and the tour was long enough to be interesting without becoming boring. A great time!

This restaurant is not on the beach and doesn't have a view of the ocean. But it has some of the best pizza ever. On our first visit our server was Dion. On the second visit a few days later he remembered us and even our prior order! Great service and a pleasant outdoor atmosphere. Very enjoyable place. Brewery tours... More

I really enjoy their Big Wave beer so we thought we would stop by. Great little place to eat and have some drinks. They have a great little beer sampler i would recommend. Food was good too. Only problem is that beer flows easy ;-) Great place to stop at.

The Wild Mushroom pizza was yummy, shared a 12" and it was enough for two people. Had a beer sampler and everything was good.

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
