“Family Friendly and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Perhaps some of the best pizza we had whie traveling on the big island. But, pizza alone doesn't make for a great brewing business and restaurant.

My friend had the fish tacos and my family tried a few other things on the menu.

While a pub, the place was very family friendly with choices from pizza to soda. I also enjoyed their free-refills on their Kona Coffee. It was excellent!

When traveling I love having the option for outdoor seating so we can enjoy the gorgeous weather.

I believe this is the same Kona Brewing Company I saw at the Honolulu airport.

“Above Average Brew Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Tasty pizza and pleasant server. Music a little loud for easy table chat, but at least the mix was mellow. Oh, and the beer is pretty good, too!

“Great pizza”

We go here ever year and have never been disappointed. We go Sunday nights for live music- a bit of a wait but worth it!

“Best of Both”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Nothing goes together better than beer and pizza, and Kona Brewing Company serves the best of both. Each time we have gone, we have had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated, but the wait was well worth it.

Their beers are outstanding! We tried a sampler, and enjoyed each of the offerings. Their pizzas are several notches above the normal, with unique choices that blend various ingredients to create great tasting pizzas.

Don't miss this place.

“Wedding must have! Kona brewing please.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

We are from PDX and got married on the big island. We had 32 guests fly in to celebrate our wedding at the old Kona airport. We of course chose to have our reception at the brewery, and it was amazing food, drinks, appetizers, and of course desert was all perfect. 3 years later and it was just as amazing. A must do for anyone on the big island.
