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

Great food and a nice outdoor space. We left our husbands there and we went shopping. Highly recommend it!

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!!

During our 6 night stay in Hawaii, we ate at Kona Brewing Company twice. Both times we had a good meal sitting outside in the beautiful weather. The beer is excellent so make sure to give them a try. If you have some time the tour is worth it.

Our first and last stops on the Big Island, Castway IPA and Pizza Rolls for a mid-afternoon snack when we landed and FireRock with Pizza before we departed for dinner, what a treat! We love this place, our favorite food and beer stop in all the islands or anywhere for that matter. They have an excellent selection of beer and... More

This is a good little brewery tour. Make sure to book in advance, as space is limited (to around 15, I think). We went to a 3PM tour and it was full, so ended up coming back for the 10:30 AM tour the next day. For $5 each , the tour provides typical brewing information and history of this particular... More

We stopped here for a little relaxation and to sample some beers while we were in Kona while on our cruise on the Pride of America. We were too late to do a brewery tour...they were all full. (I think that you can reserve a spot online if you knew you were planning on making a stop here) The bar... More
