We toured the factory and sampled the Balashi and Hopi Stout beers whilst enjoying some local cuisine. The pork medallions with mushrooms in a brown gravy was excellent. The prices were inline with local establishments, not the higher end on the beaches.

Chill and Balashi is good in bottles...but amazing on tap. The food is so-so. But if you like their beer...you owe it to yourself to have it at the source!

We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about their products. Happy to hear about how they recycle waste water (piped to a local cement company) and barley byproducts (given to local farmers for feed), especially considering the Island hardly does any recycling. They were...More

I've visited many breweries all over and this was the least interesting tour I've ever taken. The tour guide pointed to a few signs to describe the brewing process and took us to view the bottling process. At the time they were bottling water and...More
