“One Of My Favorites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

This is one of my favorite spots in Kona. It isn't on the water nor does it have an ocean view, but they've created a great atmosphere right in the heart of Kona.

I admit to being a beer geek and have been brewing beer for 20 years now and theirs is very, very good. The food is very good as well and doesn't Cost a fortune. It can get busy here in the evenings, so get here early or be prepared for a wait.

“Good beer selection and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Great selection of beer. The food was delicious, I had the shrimp melt (which were nice prawns) and my sweetie had the BBQ chicken sandwich. The papaya slaw was nicely spiced. Good service and nice atmosphere, sit outside if you can.

“Big beer, big food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It's pricey, but you get so much food that even appetizers are enough for a meal. We had enough leftovers for 2 more meals.

“Great Brewpub, terrible lines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We finally got in after an aborted first attempt due to the rediculously long wait lines with relatively few places to sit. Once actually seated, however, we really enjoyed their great line up of beers and the pizza was incredible! Best beer on the menu is the Blue Wave, hands down. Tried to find it after returning home to Denver with no luck. I eventually found it in local stores a few months ago....Thank you Kona Brewing! The Longboard Lager and Fire Rock are also very good, just not on the level of Blue Wave for my taste. We will be back, but can you please expand your seating or something?

“great pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Loved the Longbard Lager- brewed at this location. I recommend the Imu Pig sandwich- outstanding. I don't eat chips (too greasy) but everyone else loved the fresh kettle potato chips.
