Always on our itinerary for the Big Island!

Great Pizza and fabulous microbrews to choose from! Fun atmosphere with adorable geckos that wink at you from the umbrellas!

Go for the beer, have a pizza, and don't expect a lot of service. I had to twice go into the bar from the patio to get drinks from the bartender, who was very nice. (Local knowledge) all the bottled beer is brewed on the mainland at sister breweries but the beer on tap is brewed right here at Kailua... More

We didn't take a tour. Just went to eat and taste some of the beers. Pizza was great! Some had sandwiches and nachos and were equally pleased. Found a few of the beers that were very good

Cool tour of the brewery with insight into Kona's business practices and green energy initiatives. The beer tasting at the end was definitely the best part...followed by eating lunch at their restaurant. Lunch was so good we're going back for lunch another day during our vacation!!

We were pressed for time, so we didn't want to wait in line to get seated. Their merch window had some great-looking t-shirts, which we got. I try to find Kona beers when I go out.

To avoid long lines, stop at the growler station! You can taste test the beers and get a small growler for cheap! Happy hour growler fills from 5-7 pm!

Always a great selection of beers made on the premises including seasonals that vary. Check to see if a Friday visit is on "Firkin Friday" to sample quirky beers made in small quantity (a hit or miss proposition, but the price is right - free!) Food is generally excellent. Good pizzas, sandwiches & appetizers. The French Dip Porterhouse sandwich is... More

I went with a number of friends. We had a really great time. The various types of pizza and beer were great. For the island I didn't think it was too expensive. There is indoor and outdoor seating. If you have a big group, you will want to get there early.

Our first stop after landing. We have always been a fan of Kona brews so we were having a great time. Food is good too.

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
