Best Beer on the Island!

This was our third trip to the island, and we finally had time to swing through the Brewhaus. Every local that we met kept telling us this was the place for beer, and they were right! The beer is fantastic. Food was pretty good as well. Service was a little slow, but hey, you're in Hawaii, you... read more

Will never return here again. Waited hour and a half to get served water. Twice they told us that they didnt have what we ordered. Left unhappy seemed more like a sloppy bar instead of a restaurant.

If you are beer fan you can't miss this place. This is our second time at the Big Island Brewhaus and it didn't disappoint. My wife had the Red Sea of Cacao (salted caramel & chocolate) and I had the Tall Dark & Mandarin (tangerines & cacao). We could not stop there so we finished with the Golden Sabbath (golden... More

Huge menu with options for everyone. The beer was great. My favorite was the bohemian Pilsner... So good! They have a large variety of GF, DF, vegan, and vegetarian options. They also have options for the meat lover. Service was great. Kelli was our server and I would recommend asking for her. A total must eat.

Husband had nacho chips and I had a burrito. Both were so very good, fresh guacamole. The beer was local and very nice. Seems like it is popular with locals, nummers. Parking is limited.

Lunch was calling while out doing some errands and we vowed to hit up all three breweries anyway so... Chose the outdoor seating and it took a while to get waited on. A little confusion ensued while ordering beer (on the waiter's part) and he ended up ordering us some light beers instead of some fuller flavors that we requested.... More

Ate here twice and had a different experience each time. Let me say that the food was excellent, the beer outstanding but the service left us wanting the second time. The food didn't come in ordinary the final dish came very late as if an oversight. Burgers, fish bites, garlic fries and the chilli rellenos were excellent. White Mountain Porter... More

We stopped here twice. I don't drink beer but eat at more than my share of brewpubs as my companion is an avid taster. He definitely found this brewery's offerings to be the best in the state. And the food was also wonderful, not always true at brew pubs. First stop we focused on smalls -- fish bites, Kalua pork... More
