“Great food cool tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Go to the brewery tour at 10am and 3pm if you are going to the 3 o'clock tour swing by early to sign up, then wander around the shopping nearby. That way you are sure to get one of the coveted 15 spots. The tour ends with four samples of the greatest microbrew in the US. Then stick around for the best pizza in HAWAII!

“Best Pizza EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The sausage on the Captain Cook pizza makes this a highlight for us every year.
The beer is of course top notch.
Service is usually very good.
Tried the crab cakes, crab dip and sausage rolls as well this year, all were superb.
Price is high end brewery level.
Their gingerade is very good if you like strong ginger flavor.
Lunch is suprisingly quiet as is dinner if you are there by 5. It gets crazy busy later though.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Went here twice and LOVED it! Once on a weeknight -20 min wait - and once for Sunday lunch at 12:30 - waltzed right in. The $9 pizza slice/salad deal was just right, and the dressing was on the side without my even having to ask! Good pizza with a nice kick to the sauce and perfect crust. Good advice both times - win! Skip Ali'i and come here! I especially love the Koko Brown.

“Great Beer, good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Beer a lot better from the tap vs what you get in a bottle on the mainland. Pleasantly surprised with the pizza. Try the Captain Cook.
