A nice place to spend some time having a late lunch. It's a very busy spot, but if you go a little later in the day...late lunch or early dinner... you won't have to wait too long for a table. I'm not a beer lover so was a little skeptical at first, but my husband had couple of different glasses and was pleased. The house Chardonnay was a pleasant surprise, so good in fact that I had a second glass.. (our hotel was across the street, we walked..) We started with the Kona crab cakes, sooo good, then shared the Puna Pie. So delicious, just make sure you aren't the only one to eat it, it's very filling and VERY garlic-y!! Would we go again sometime, you bet! Enjoy!

We stopped here when traveling between Kohala and South Kona. It is a large operation with a chain-like menu (think Fridays or Chili's). The food was unremarkable. The beer, on th other hand, was very good, and I expect that is the draw here. We didn't get a big jug (a "growler") from the stand outside but those looked like a good option - in many varieties - for people looking to take away beer.

Delicious brews and tasty pizza made with fresh ingredients at reasonable prices. Nice gathering place for friends after a day at the beach.

My wife and I had a great time at Kona Brewing Co. We had an outside table and enjoyed the outdoor ambiance of Hawaii. There isn't an oceanview, but we enjoyed it anyway. The beer is awesome. The pizza is good ! We added our name to the 3PM tour list and came back for the tour. It was fun. The tasting after the tour was interesting because they let you sample some of the more unique beers.

The stop started with a fast but enjoyable brewery tour. Some great samples during the tour. A very nice tour guide who was very amusing. Then we stayed for lunch...the garlic twists were great. The pizza was hands down amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! More beers followed and we left with our most enjoyable lunch of our Hawaii trip.
