About
Kailua-Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island is the site of our brewery and first restaurant. The brewpub opened in November 1998. In true Aloha spirit, we opted to make it out of locally-sourced materials, and we even built a 2,000 square-foot outdoor lanai that lets you kick back and enjoy the fresh island air. Inside the brewpub, we have limited seating but the same great grub and beer. Brewery tours are currently unavailable, but the Growler Shack is also open daily, serving beer-to-go! We also offer delivery! Order online by clicking the link to our website!

Beer: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So that’s start the basics...it’s a brewery. So five stars for beers!! They have lot of choices to choose from. You will not be disappointed if you’re going there for beer. Food: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I would give them a three stars. We got their...caesar salad and the lettuce was kinda old, doesn’t look appetizing. As for our main entree, we ordered a pizza dish called “Hawaiian Lu’au” and it was good, but the goat cheese was a little bit too strong for me. Service: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ We had to wait about 10 mins for a table, so it wasn’t that bad. I think our waitress probably took too many tables because it took her a while to come check on us after she took our orders. But it’s okay, we still got what we wanted. P.s. it’s said on their online menu that they had cocktails, but when we got there they told us that they are only serving beer and wine.More

We loved the fact that this brew pub was so busy, busting and had a very extensive menu. We had several hours before our flight back to the Mainland and it was perfect for people watching, great brews and food. They were very Covid safe...also.More

Excellent food and drinks, tried roasted garlic and grilled catch of the day and it was yummm and not so pricey. Didn’t get a chance to try desert though

Great ambiance. The patio was surrounded with lush foliage and didn’t feel like it was in the area that it was once you are seated. Great food and beer. Was one of my favorite restaurants in Kona.

Six of us enjoyed a good dinner and a couple rounds of Longboard – their special that night. Drafts were $3.95. I had fish taocs; decent but not saucy/spicy. I asked for a local sauce, and they produce some good ones under their label. My...husband had pork tacos, which he liked. Pulled pork with bbq sauce and slaw. Others enjoyed their meals too – sliders and the turkey pesto sandwich. Based on other reviews I wish I would have tried the pizza! Next time... The server was on his game and did a great job. He also bartends there and added to a fun dining experience. We ate outside near the tiki torches and each table has a little rechargeable light. Worked out great. Restroom are one-way access (for those who read the signs. ; )More

We stopped here twice for pizza during our stay. We had the Hawaiian and the margherita pizza. I would say it was the best pizza I've ever had. The crust was light and crispy. The cheese was gooey and creamy. I can't describe how good...the pizza was. Of course great beer goes well with the great pizza.More

Get there a couple minutes prior to 5 or right at 5 and won’t wait too long. Worth the wait! I’m gluten free but went ahead and had ONE pepperoni ball! OH MMM G! And the marinara! I’ve told everyone I could after hahaha !...We did a bunch of plates so we could taste a lot! Great food! The staff was friendly and felt COVID safe! Loved it enough to write a review.More

I haven’t done the tour but from what I see when visiting it looks quite informal as to reservations. I don’t know about cost, either The web site lists all the times of the tours but does not list a price. Call them and ask.

Sorry. We always eat outside, so I don't know. I suspect there are some screens inside, however.
