I'm a big fan of Kona Brewing. We can't get very many of their options in Portland. I really was excited to come here to enjoy some of the brews we can't get. I had a taster tray of 4 to start with and then their seasonal Pilsner. It was great. They had gluten free food options for others in... More

We just stopped in to try some local beers (with 18 to choose from ya gotta find a few to like), tried a couple of pale ales, a porter and a lager, enjoyed all. Jason the bartender was great; informative, efficient and attentive. A VERY busy bar and dining area (they are planning a very large expansion), great vibe with... More

Must visit when in the Kona area. Great relaxed feel about the place, good bar food and an even better amount of beers to choose from. We got there at peak time when waits were 45 minutes for tables but managed to sneak ourselves a couple of bar seats. Ended up getting a few tasting selections of beers before settling... More

We didn't do the tour but took our friends here for lunch and a beer. Very crowded but worth the effort to get a seat inside or out and suffer thru the heat if outside just to have one of their beers! Or maybe two! The food was amazing and the beer was perfect. The service is good and the... More

Had a enjoyable day out at Kona Brewing company! The food & beer was very good, however, was not impressed with the tour. Had the fish tacos & my partner had the pulled pork tacos were very tasty indeed! A long board beer is a must & goes down a treat!!! Service was impeccable, just what you expect in the... More

It is only a small brewery but the tour was interesting and great value at only $5, which included a tasting of four delicious beers. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area, however once you have had a taste you might not want to hurry off...

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from hotel staff. It was ok. We choose two types of pizza and did a half and half on a medium. We liked the dough a lot, but not the combos we picked. Despite what the waiter said, we thought a more "generic" topping wold have been much better than the pesto... More

Great beer - not the best I've had but this is Kona Hawaii. The service is actually top notch and the food is awesome. The pizza is well known and so are their sliders. Outdoor seating is ok as the place is in an industrial area.

After over 5 days at sea we finally arrived in Kona, Hawaii. Wanted something local for lunch and found Kona Brewing Co right away. Wonderful selections of beer. If we had more time I would have been happy to have a pint of every beer on the menu! Talking to table mates, the other beers sounded good! Enjoyed a few... More
