Kona Brewing Company is larger than your typical craft breweries. However, the feel of their pub/restaurant is very similar to the smaller places. We didn't go on the tour so my review is limited to the restaurant...it was a Monday evening which is usually the slow evening of the week for most restaurants, I was surprised that we had to...

My wife and I recently went for dinner and were more than pleased. Although you may be presented with a line up for a table, it is very efficient and our wait was bot time at all - we were given a buzzer and got buzzed within 15 minutes. The menu is a wide selection of pupus, pizzas, sandwiches and... More

This is by far one of the best values for paid tours in Kailua-Kona. $5 gets you a very informative tour of this small and impressive facility as well as 4 samples of some tasty beer. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. You also get a sample pint glass as a free gift. I would recommend booking well... More

We signed up for the tour, which was around $5 and included a small tasting glass. The tour was nothing special but included a tasting of four 4 oz beers, including some that are not commonly mass produced. The restaurant has great outdoor seating and fantastic food. Seek our the experimental and unique brews, and ask your waiter/bartender for the... More

Our tour guide Colin was freakin awesome. The beer tasting was well worth $5, I highly recommend it. All the different beers were fanatastic. Bought a hydro flask and it's excellent with $5 refills. Really cool that the brewery reuses and repurposes a lot of its resources. The restaurant pizza was delicious & the entire staff was friendly. Overall a... More

We stopped here for lunch while visiting several sites around Kona. The location is central in Kona and easy to find. The beer choices were nice. The food was pretty good - several of us had salads and enjoyed them. The kids' menu had a good selection and not just the same three choices. Our server was nice and helpful... More

We did the brew tour. It was so much fun and so educational. The tasting was delicious and Colin, our tour guide, made the experience so fun, even my nondrinking boyfriend had a blast. A must do.

Colin gave an awesome tour of the brewery - hailing from Oahu by way of the east coast and having slightly higher-class beer tastes, we enjoy Kona beers on occasion but after taking the tour and trying the beers served only on tap at the brew pub, we were impressed. Definitely can't miss the kua bay ipa - ask for... More
