This is a great tour to learn how beer is made. The tour guide was very informative. There is a small cost I think $5 and be sure to make reservation as it is popular. At end of the tour there are beer samples where they have you taste the different blends. Fun, informative, cost next to nothing and then... More

This place is a bit hard to find, but well worth it once you do! They have a large selection of beer and food, and a large patio on which to enjoy them! The brewery offers tours, but the timing of our visit didn't coincide with the tour schedule. This was one of the best and most enjoyable meals we... More

Yearly my husband and I visit the beautiful Big Island and our favorite place on the island is definitely the Kona Brewing Company in Kailua-Kona, close to the ocean. They brew their own beer, have so many different ones ( Light-bodied beers like longboard Island Lager...., Wheat Beers like Hula Hefeweizen..., Hoppy Beers, like Kua Bay and Castaway, our two...

We went after reading reviews and would return for the pizza. The edamame was icy, limp, wet, and lacked flavor. The Cajun mani sandwich also lacked flavor. The kohala pizza alone would have gotten five stars though.

The beer and the pizza are both great. With this in mind, understand the wait and crowds. Our waiter Clay was very attentive.

I can not and will not recommend this place, ever. Do not go to this place if you expect to wait and it is crowded. It is not worth your time. I cannot comment on the quality food or drink because I never was able to taste them. We never got a table so we could order. When we arrived... More

Kona Brewery is an great place for everyone. Ordered the Pork Tacos and a pint it was awesome. Atmosphere is laid back with indoor and outdoor seating.
