We stopped for lunch. It wasn't crowded and we were able to get a table outside in the patio area. Service was excellent. We had of course Kona beer and a large pizza. The beer was cold and the pizza was delicious. Lots of varieties of pizza or make up your own. We stopped by again later in the week... More

We absolutely love this place! We did the short tour and sampled many of their beer. We stayed for lunch- their pizza is really good! It is a popular place and there is usually a wait- but we ate at the bar area and did not have to wait! But sit outside in lush tropical setting!

We really enjoyed our meal here. We sat outside with the mongoose for company in an area cleverly camouflaged from the stores around it by thick vegetation. We all received large portions of food and those who had beer said it was very good. The pizza seems to be a specialty here and we had a couple of different ones,... More

Go for the beer, have a pizza, and don't expect a lot of service. I had to twice go into the bar from the patio to get drinks from the bartender, who was very nice. (Local knowledge) all the bottled beer is brewed on the mainland at sister breweries but the beer on tap is brewed right here at Kailua... More

We didn't take a tour. Just went to eat and taste some of the beers. Pizza was great! Some had sandwiches and nachos and were equally pleased. Found a few of the beers that were very good

Cool tour of the brewery with insight into Kona's business practices and green energy initiatives. The beer tasting at the end was definitely the best part...followed by eating lunch at their restaurant. Lunch was so good we're going back for lunch another day during our vacation!!

We were pressed for time, so we didn't want to wait in line to get seated. Their merch window had some great-looking t-shirts, which we got. I try to find Kona beers when I go out.

To avoid long lines, stop at the growler station! You can taste test the beers and get a small growler for cheap! Happy hour growler fills from 5-7 pm!

Always a great selection of beers made on the premises including seasonals that vary. Check to see if a Friday visit is on "Firkin Friday" to sample quirky beers made in small quantity (a hit or miss proposition, but the price is right - free!) Food is generally excellent. Good pizzas, sandwiches & appetizers. The French Dip Porterhouse sandwich is... More
