There is a very diverse selection of beers with "hops" ratings to help make your selection. The cuisine is delicious, and the service is very good.

For a beer haus this place was a great combination. Their sampler is the way to go for the beer tasting. The wonton taco was fantastic. The garlic fries were the biggest hit. Nice slivers of garlic through out the platter. This is a must place to stop

We did not have dinner here but everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. We did have 3 beers and bought a couple of T-shirts. Thumbs up to the beer and service. It's a really cute place and a fun way to kill time in Waimea.

She is now our go-to in Waimea when looking for a beer. Small, comfortable place serving various flavors of beers with alcohol content up to 8.5%. Attentive, friendly wait staff and indoor- outdoor, (shaded) seating. Pub food on... More

Very good variety of on site brewed beers. Arranged on the chalk board and in the menu by alcohol content. Anything from a ginger beer too big UPS and stout. The five beer taster is a good idea to get a feel for the breadth of flavors. The food has a Mexican style. Burritos, fish or chicken tacos, etc. Also... More

I have eaten here with my family three times in our last two visits to the Big Island. The menu is innovative with lots of vegetarian options, and reasonable prices. The beer is outstanding. Service has been friendly for each of our visits, and the atmosphere is casual and comfortable. Well worth the drive from the Waikoloa area to escape... More

Award winning micro-brewery located upcountry in Waimea. Great selection of small batch beer with well priced food consisting of a mix of mexican specialties and typical brew pub fare.
