We were a family with a small 10 year old girl and arrived at approximately 3 pm after a long 4 hour trip from Hawaii Volcanoes National park. It was a little bit hard to find but when we finally got there we were very impressed straight away. The place was rocking with customers even though it was way past normal lunch hours. We were immediately seated and promptly attended to. The servers were very professional and always smiling. The food was of good quality with generous servings. Their beer was sensational. I would recommend that to you go for the 4 brew sampler (a couple of times ;) so that that you can taste their full array of beer. We were so satisfied and happy that we ended up buying a Kona Brewing Co T Shirt (which are very cool and of good quality) and a huge carafe to take away. If in Bog Island Kona this place is a must for any visitor!!!! Cheers.

What a fun place! Interesting food, indoor or outdoor seating, and their beer brewing tour was amazing (their chilled brewing facilities are a GREAT place to beat the heat). After the 30 tour (which is FREE), you are treated to very generous samples of 4 or 5 different kinds of beer. You should probably have lunch there before the tour. ;- )

I have a soft spot for the Kona Brew Pub. It can get pretty crowded and service suffers a bit when they're slammed. Their pizza is good but a little pricey. Some of the food specials have been hit and miss in my book. If my review were based solely on their food, I would give them a 3. Their brews, though, are worth an extra point. I'm a huge fan. I love their Pipeline Porter and Wailua Wheat. The pub is the only place you can get these brews on tap, off-season. They also offer special brews you won't find except in the pub. I wish I lived closer so I could take advantage of Firkin Fridays. The pub offers free tours with, hello, free draft beer tastings...FREE. Sometimes they have special brews not listed....you have to ask. Had a chance to try the barley wine - expensive but good. The Bourbon Barrel Aged Da Grind Buzz Kona Coffee Imperial Stout...also very good.

The pizza and local brews are great. Be sure to try the sampler if you can't make up your mind. Can be crowded so go early and they do have a Happy Hour. It is a little hard to find so don't hesitate to ask someone. It is a working brewery located in a small industrial area of Kailua, consequently not much atmosphere.

The Quesadilla Appetizer and Shrimp Sandwich were excellent. And of course you can expect great brew!!
