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

That company just makes the best beer ever! Funny i should travle to the other side of the world to discover such... More

As the title says, good beer, but not great. I've been to many brew pubs and I'd put the beer here and the ambiance as good, your not going to find a better selection of their beers but there are places in Kona that are more enjoyable to sit at.

Had the fish of the day sandwich which was marlin and it was delicious. Service was good and plenty of attention, very generous portions, plenty of water refills without asking especially for a warm day. Had the sampler beers and they were delicious. Would recommend this to anyone.

The beer was cold and the sandwiches were good. They don't have hamburgers or french fries. The potato chips that come with the sandwiches were not very good and the papaya slaw was tasteless. Lots of people were getting pizza, which looked good, but we didn't have that. It's a brewing company, so they have lots of beers.

We had already had Kona Beer before on the mainlands; so we had to tour the Brewery for sure! While we waited for the tour to begin we decided to try a "flight" of different draft beers! Deciding to just go to the bar we meet many "locals" there because this is their "bar"! Relaxed and fun afternoon, drinking the... More

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
