Great food and excellent service. Seating inside or outside at umbrella topped tables. We enjoyed three visits on this trip, each on a different day of the week so experienced a variety of their pizzas. All were super good as were the salads.

This place is not only a working brewery but a restaurant and bar. Food was good - beer was very good - music on Sunday night outside was a treat. Pizza was very good with many different options. Service was good too.

This place is worth a visit for dinning in Kona. They have great beer, t-shirt sales, and a decent menu. Service was good. Can get busy. Love the off sale shack!

While Lava Man red ale is our favorite, there is something for everyone here, and if you’re not sure, ask your server to help you choose a flight of smaller beers to sample. The pizza crust is the best! You can choose one of their...More

Beer was delicious, pizza was awesome. Atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable. Indoor seating is air conditioned. Outdoor seating is warm on a hot day but still relaxing. Two thumbs up!

First went to Kona Brew when I moved here 24 years ago. They did not have a bar and restaurant that they have now, with the best pizza. They use the spent wort from making the beer, the grains, and incorporate it into their delicious...More

Really great pizza! If you are staying a few days, check out the happy hour times and discounts on growlers. Worth it!

The brewery is not far at all. Maybe a 10 minute walk. Well worth the walk

Yes ... All their Hawaii brewed beers are domestic beers of course! Now if you meant “do they sell US mainland watery beers?” I’d have to pass on answering this question as I never enquired as I wanted to “enjoy” some good... More
