The beer here is great with so many to choose from. The bartenders couldn't be any better as they will pass you a sample of everything they sell. The food might be a bit pricey, but it is outstanding and I will always eat here when visiting the big island. Meal times can be a bit crowded so I recommend... More

We went of the tour and did a tasting. It's a small tour, the tour guide was knowledgeable and did a great job. We received a key chain souvenir and 4 beer samples. Definitely with the price.

A fascinating small restaurant were the wings and pizza are delicious. It's hard to beat beer, pizza and wings for good bar food. We liked the thin pizza the best and tried numerous tasty beers. It is also crowded primarily because of its size. There is also outdoor eating. Hard to carry on a conversation, it is loud. Fun and... More

I have been enjoying Kona beers since being in Hawaii on holidays. I enjoy the Fire Rock and Longboard Larger and have tried one other that you usually find on restaraunt menus, so thought we sould check out the Brewery when we got to Kona. It's located in an almost light industrial area a few miles out. Even at 1:45... More

My friend and got a table in bar as it was a long wait for anything else. Place is touristy. Staff was awesome. We both had pizza and I'd recommend skinny crust. We sampled about a dozen beers and they were different. A lot of fruity beer if you are into that. I just stuck with the lager and Duke''s... More

The beer here is pretty solid. We had the pesto pizza and quesadillas. Both were pretty good but I would ask to get the pizza thin style next time. The best thing were the wings which were very good.

Our third trip to the big island and each time we have made the trip to Kona Brewery. Always great beer selections and a nice mix of local folks as well as travelers. The food is good and the service also good. But the bar tenders and the beer are great.

My two grown children and I had dinner here and really liked it. First time we have been here. My daughter and I had a pizza. It was very good, lots of choices for toppings. My son had a sandwich. He almost couldn't finish it, it was quite large. The beer was the best I've tasted so far. Our waitress... More

Expect a bit of wait. But, it is worth it. They only have the tour twice a day at 10 am and 3 Pm. You need to make reservations for that. It was 12 Pm when we arrived and it was hot outside. It was crowded. The beers were great. I got the Wailua Wheat which had a nice passionfruit... More
