Best pizza in the island!

We always go to the brewery when in the Big Island. We love the Puna pizza, with the local goat cheese and garlic, yummi! The different beer flights, let you taste the variety of their beers. There is sitting in and outside, very cool place to go!

Even though the beer selection is fantastic, the food is also excellent. The pizza was awesome, the wings were delicious, and the service was great. A real winner.

This place has great beer and food. They have some wonderful dark beers such as Black Sand Porter and Pipeline Porter. The food is also good - traditional pub food. The staff is friendly. They have live music at times.

My husband and I ate here twice on our trip. It is always busy but the service is efficient and the tables turn fairly quickly. Their salads are delicious (the Island Salad was our favorite), we had a pepperoni and mushroom pizza as well. Servers are very good. Of course the beer is so perfect with pizza and they have...

Was in the mood for something refreshing to drink besides beer. The homemade sodas were excellent. The hibiscus soda was very good. I always order the pork tacos and they never let me down.

I remember visiting this 15 years ago (I think). It was a relatively small brew / pub. It is no longer. This is one of the places not to miss when visiting Kona. I think they turned the parking lot into restaurant. I have no idea how big it is now but service is great and the food and beer... More

This by far was one of our favorite places to eat when we visited the big island. I tried to do the tour, but it was booked. I ordered the beer sampler, which came with four samples. We order a pizza which we were able to split into two different style. We choose the bacon cheeseburger pizza and the Kohala... More

My husband and I took the tour of the brewery and enjoyed hearing how they make it and the lengths that they go to in order to be environmently friendly. At the end of the tour was of course the tasting, in which we were able to try some of the best sellers as well as some seasonal brews- I... More

There is really nothing quaint or Hawaiian about this place. I felt like I was more in Calif or Las Vegas then Hawaii. The food was mostly bbq which was soso. I tried the "fresh" fish sandwich-ahi tuna which is my favorite fish. I do not know what day it was fresh, but it wasn't the day we ate there.... More
