Don't miss the brewery tour! It's such an amazing deal. For $5 you get an in depth tour, tasting, and free gift. We had such a fun time. Our tour guide was awesome and knew everything there was to know about the brewing process. Kona Brewery offers some really great classic beers and also some super unique and inventive ones....

Tried twice to eat here Thanksgiving week, have dined here in the past. Could not get a seat unless we waited 35-45 mins. for a table. No room in the bar either! Staff was uninterested in being helpful, it was 2:30 in the afternoon on a Monday! Tried the next day to arrange a B-day party for teenage son and... More

We had a coupon from our car rental magazine that offered a free roasted garlic appetizer with the purchase of a beer sampler. Kona Brewing Company is good tasting local beer and offers several different styles of beer from pale ale to porter. The appetizer was very tasty. A huge head of roasted garlic, with bread, basil and a cheese... More

The daily special can't be beat. A slice of their yummy pizza (cheese, veggie, pepperoni, or the daily slice) and a salad for $10. With an appetizer to share, it was plenty of food for everyone in our group. And for $10 it is possibly the cheapest dinner you will find in Kailua-Kona. Everyone who had the beers raved about...

We always try the local brewery, whenever we can. Went for dinner one night. The service and atmosphere were so good, we returned for dessert the next.

Kona Brewing Company was our stop off after a day of tough shore diving. Great food and atmosphere. The patio is just a perfect place to enjoy a laid back meal. Appetizers were great- try the tuna tartare. Pizza was phenomenal. All around great choice.

The brewery tour was very interesting, not only was it deliciously refreshing to taste the different varieties of Kona brew (especially on a hot day!), but it was inspiring and educational to learn about the brewery's commitment to "green" technology, which were quite innovative and creative. I really enjoyed the tour and tastings, and wish I had more time to... More

We visited here twice during our trip, mostly because my husband LOVES the Pipeline Porter and can no longer find it on the mainland. Food was good, we had wonderful service, and it was a fun place to relax at the end of the day.
