We ate at the brew-pub a couple of times on a recent vacation, but also signed up for the brewery tour. The guy who led the tour did a great job, both showing us around the tanks, and also for the beer tasting afterwards. It was an hour well spent. Review for March 2015

Fun and friendly atmosphere. Lots of great food and beer. Just a short walk from the King Kam. Its a little hard to find the entrance as the brewery is also right there, but don't give up. Its worth it. Get there early for dinner before the line ups get long and the wait does too.

Hawaiian Lu’au pizza is great - the beer speaks for itself. Need more on tap in the growler fill area though.

Pretty good food wonderful beer and great atmosphere! I think that they should've rethought their desserts a little more.

Must admit, I was skeptical of Kona Brewing at first but I am sold! From Western NC and we have an awesome beer brewing scene and many, many microbreweries. I have tried some of Kona's beers available on the mainland and they were good but wasn't overly impressed. However, they were better on draft and their seasonal or 'brewery only'... More

If you've enjoyed Kona Brew Co’s beers anywhere else, you HAVE to stop here! The flavor is just sublime from a draft on-site, and the selection is awesome! The Koko Loco Brown Ale was great, as well as the Wailua Wheat and the Lilikoi Wheat ale, very nice on a warm evening (three of us shared tastes!) Plus it’s a... More

We landed at Kona on a beautiful sunny afternoon but were tired from travel and thirsty .What better place to decompress than the patio at Kona Brewing Company? They brew their own beer here and there's a nice selection including tasting flights. I tried their Beer of Da Week and a Shrimp Melt with cole slaw. Delicious! The service was... More

I took the tour and had lunch here. Tour was good, quick, full of history and facts, as well as, entertaining and did I mention it was quick? The guide Bo was awesome. Beer was great, you can only get 3-4 of their beers on the mainland so you have to try out the others and the seasonals, delicious! We... More

Support a local Hawaiian company and enjoy some great food and beer in the process. This place is always busy. We showed up at 11:00 (opening time) and still waited a bit to be seated as there was already a crowd. The service is fast, we were in and out in 45 minutes but not rushed. It was our last... More
