While in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, having a local beverage on a warm night seems like a must. The Kona Brewery has done a great job marketing their line of Hawaiian craft beers both on the islands and on the mainland. Their merch at the brewery is is well set up and you feel like you have to go home with a hat or shirt. Their twice daily brewery tour are always full and should be booked at least a day in advance. The restaurant and bar is lively with an island setting and walkable from most hotels around Kailua Kona village. Signs of a new Kons Brewery are just down the road. Let's face it, Kona makes a good variety of craft beers, that's the draw. The food choices are reasonable and the featured pizza ok. The service needs a little refreshing, things come slowly so don't be in a rush. On a weekend night you will find a long wait to get seated and you may consider coming for lunch instead. But the beer is good

In our month in Kona we went to Kona Brewing 3 times. It's a busy place at dinner expect to wait almost an hour for an outside table between 5pm and 8pm. The tables at the bar area inside are first come first served. Our first time there we were lucky enough to find a table inside. Had one of their great beers (LOVED the Wailua Wheat!) and a large veggie pizza. Delish!! The second time we were not so lucky. Even though it was sprinkling there was still a 45 min. wait for a table. The indoor tables were full the entire time. Still worth the wait. The final time was lunch before heading to the airport to go home. Still about a 30 min. wait. We were sad to leave. Wish we had a Kona Brew pub back here on the east coast.
