This brewery is a little hard to find but definitely worth it. They are only open in the afternoon and close at 5:00. The flight of all the beers is $5.00 I think--not expensive or you can sample individual brews for $1.00 each. Each pour...More

We found this little brewery online before a business trip and because we like our beer, decided we couldn’t pass it up. It’s off the beaten path, and contrary to what we were told, it’s way more than a mile from Banyan Drive. Needless to...More

As of August beer samples are no longer free but the fee is reasonable. While the business appears to be growler fill and keg sale focused I was glad to add this visit during my recent cruise ship stop.

Free beer tasting, friendly folks. Small tasting room and neat and quality products at reasonable prices for sale too. Not pretentious. Small parking lot and great prices. Buy a growler, 50% off your first fill up. Great tip from a local who was inside tasting...More

The conversation w/ Richard, a brewer, was educational and the service from Hoku was superb! Both were very knowledgeable about the beer they brew. Had the chance to sample 'all' the beer that was available on tap (9 total!). This place is a 'must' stop...More

Able to do a complete tasting of their beers - light to dark. The server was very knowledgeable. You can't buy pints to drink on site but you can buy individual cans of their beer.

This place was not what we expected. It's a little tasting room not a bar. They let you taste all the samples they have. The girl behind the taps was friendly. They sell growlers, t-shirts and other souvenirs. We purchased some of their brown ale...More

If you are in their neighborhood, worth a 30 minute stop. Free samples of all their beers, very friendly and welcoming bartender. Tasting note - I'm a Kona and Big Island fan more than Mehana, but they have some very good and more interesting darker...More
