We were lucky to be able to reserve tickets for the brewery-tour on short notice. They are 5$ per person and absolutely worth it. Some souvenir-chainrings and a beer-tasting (4 different beers, some of them only available on tap) were included. The tour was rather short for the brewery isn't that big, but the beer-tasting was fun. We were on... More

If you go at normal lunch/dinner hours always seems to be a long wait. Place is quite popular. The beer is excellent and the unpretentious food good. Many different kinds of locally brewed beer that you can only get at the restaurant. Get a beer sampler to try three different beers without getting wasted. Pizzas, salads, sandwiches are good in...

Indoor and outdoor seating was very hot even in the shade. No breeze and no fans. Food was good for bar food. We had fun sampling the brews.

Good local beers, reasonable prices. Pizza is a good bet but I can't recommend the pork (imu) sandwich. Lasagna is decent and comes with a nice salad.

We heard rave reviews about the Kona Brewing Company and we love their beer so this was a must for us on our trip to the Big Island. We were a little let down by the food and the service, but the beer was great as usual. We both got samplers of 4 different beers of your choice, which I... More

Make sure you book online to do the tour for $5. It's really worth it. If you don't book you can turn up and get put on the reserve list. Beer is really good and some fantastic mango beer. Pizzas are incredible and great atmosphere. I love this place

This is recommended for beer fans and food lovers alike. The beers are really good and you can do 4 5oz tasters for a good price (around $9). The chicken wings and pizzas are amazing. The location is good so it is a short walk to the sea front where you can go for a stroll. Would recommend!

We stopped off here for refreshments after doing Koko Head Trail and a delight it was. Hubby loved trying all the different beers and ales. Staff were great giving us tips for other places to visit and best taxi fares (Lyft). The food and location was awesome would recommend and would love to come again. Our only gripe we left... More

Finally of the tour was tasting 4 types of brews for each guest. You can also stay afterwards in their restaurant on site. We did not stay for dinner but word... More

Took the $5 tour of the Kona Brewery. The tour is informative and interesting. The tour area is relatively small, but, you get a nice perspective of the operation and of their brewing process. Plus, you get to sample a variety of beers; ales, wheat, stouts, etc. It is a great value and a nice way to spend an afternoon.... More
