Essentially this is a brewery with a restaurant. The restaurant tends to get busy so when you arrive there may be a wait. They do give you buzzers that let you know when your table will be ready if you are willing too wait. We went on a busy Monday night and not waited 15 minutes. They have a wide... More

Popped in just for a quick bite and a drink and we loved it. We were there during happy hour which made it even better. Good food options for veggies which isn't always the case we found on the Big Island

Take the tour and stick around for some food and beers afterwards. The tour includes ~4 tastings which just scratches the surface of their offerings.

We went on their 3pm brewery tour and had dinner afterwards. The tour guide was knowledgable, fun, friendly and we got to sample beer not available on the mainland. In addition to hearing about how their beer is made in some detail, it was interesting to hear about their sustainability program and business plan too. It was $5 for the... More

I absolutely loved this place and to top it off our server was from Colorado too! I had the jalapeno popper pizza which was amazing with a Longboard! Will definitely be back...

I had the strawberry spinach salad with gorgonzola cheese and loved it. Small size is plenty. My son had pepperoni pizza, very good. I enjoyed pale ale beer. Nice hops. Wing are very nice also.

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
