Best beer on the Island. Tom the Brew Master and owner knows how to brew beer. The beers have a clean taste and they offer a wonderful selection all brewed on the premises . The Coconut Cream Ale is really good. My favorite is the White Mounter Porter. I'm not a big beer drinker but I absolutely love his beers.... More

We stopped in for lunch after finding this place on all the reviews. Ambiance is quirky and divey, just right for a Mexican Brewhaus in Waimea. As first timers the beer sampler was a great way to decide on a beer of choice. We loved the beer! The chips and salsa was a nice touch on the table as we... More

The beer sampler is a must if you visit this establishment. The mexican food was good for the Big Island. It is a bit different from the mainland. So be prepared for its uniqueness. The place is packed with folks with indoor and outdoor seating. The rains can be a bit disruptive if you sit outside. The location is just... More

We enjoyed finding a microbrewery with good food that was not a haven for tourists. My husband tried and liked the craft beers, and the food was excellent. If you're visiting from a resort, bring a jacket as they are at 2500' elevation.

I would rate this average based on what I had, but my companions loved their food so I am going with very good. Also the beer is great, wonderful tastes and icy cold, so that counts for a lot. Two friends had the fish tacos with black beans which they loved. Husband had chili verde stew - like a soup... More

My husband and I stopped here after we hiked Waipio Valley. We were starving and the Brewhaus did not disappoint. We shared a flight of beer to decide which flavors we liked, and we had a difficult time deciding because they were all so good. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We left very satisfied :)
