Great food

All of our family meals were very good. We had ribs, burgers, and beer. I was especially pleased with the ribs. They were the best I had on the island!

Great spot for lunch and a brew. Well worth it to sit outside and relax! Offers brews that you can not get via normal retail bottling. Great pub food.

We enjoyed a dinner and brews for one evening. It was good visit, with tasty local brews and food. I am glad I made the visit, but won't be rushing back as it is a ways from the hotel.

This was walking distance from our hotel and the went to have a beer at the bar. The bartender was friendly and the draft beers were cold. We bought a 64 oz "roadie" to go and some souvenirs. It was worth the visit.

When we travel we often try to hit local breweries and we scored at this one. The food was casual but delicious and the beer was tasty and cold. The menu offered a variety of food, from pizzas to fish tacos. Our kids are picky eaters so this was perfect for our family. The service was great and the food... More

I was expecting typical tourist pub food but what I received was delicious, well cooked, and thoughtful. The cubano was light and not greasy like many places serve it up. My wife's pizza was fantastic with a spent flour crust that gave an impression of sourdough. If you are checking out the Ili'i drive area, scoot up north a bit... More

Kona Brewing does an excellent job of keeping its beer menu diverse and exploratory, so visiting the site is a great way to sample what's new on tap. The setting is lovely, despite its industrial location, with thoughtful landscaping and artistic touches throughout. What surprised us what the quality of the food. Although the after-work and family groups around us... More

KB has a wide selection of their own brews from pale lagers, through IPAs to Porters. Unfortunately, I could not try them all for this review, but the Longboard Lager is quite nice, especially on a hot and humid day as it was when I visited. Maybe a beer flight would be the answer for your first visit as I... More

My party of 5 went on the afternoon tour of the facilities. Very informative and made me appreciate the varieties I could get on the island since they are not available on the mainland. Tour ended with a flight of 4 5 oz beer samples. The tour cost only $5 and the flight sample was included along with a koa... More
