I have been going to Maui, Hawaii for years now and this is one of my favorite breweries. They always have a lot of Brewpub only releases and they are usually quite delicious. I am a huge fan of the buffalo wings and their salads too, they grill their wings and the salads are prepared with delicious dressing and taste fresh. Their freight train IPA tastes identical to zombie dust (favorite pale ale) and that is always a winner for me while I am out here. They also have a diverse beer menu that can have anyone happy. This is a must try if your in Maui, Hawaii!

CHEERS! (574 characters)

A nice place in a strip mall. It's large and noisy.
They had about fifteen beers on tap and being that I might never get here again I had two flights.
They had good food but limited.
I had an ahi sandwich with slaw and it as very good.
If your on the Kaanapali coast go for it. (278 characters)

Great place. The frosted bar top is awesome. Beer gets colder as you drink it. Sliders and fries are tasty. The staff is super friendly. Always a pretty decent selection of beers. (179 characters)

A place I stopped by a few times on my recent trip to Maui.

Set in a strip mall, but the inside looks more like a warehouse. Large, open, with a big bar, and lots of TVs. Pretty lively each time I visited too.

Like I mentioned in my review of the Maui Brewery/Taphouse, the beers are all at least solid or better, with nothing being really spectacular.

Service was always good. Everyone was friendly, prompt, and willing to offer tasters.

Selection is great. They had upwards of 20 of their own beers on tap, and the first couple of times I visited they had a guest brew from Modern Times.

Food was tasty and filling.

Overall, a very worthy spot. And like I said, I found myself here more than once because I enjoyed it so much. (736 characters)

The Lahaina brewpub for Maui Brewing is a large space, with an industrial vibe. It seems a bit odd in Maui to be huddled inside a space that feels like a metal warehouse, but the design/vibe are like a lot of other brewery taprooms, so it's fine. The beers are pretty good, while the food was better. I was surprised at how good the food was (not fine dining, but really good pub food), and a bit surprised that the beers weren't better. It's not that the beers are mediocre ... they are good ... but they are not nearly as good as the better breweries in Seattle (or Portland, for that matter). You should go here, because it's the best spot on Maui for a wide variety of beer and good food. Just don't expect it to be top flight. (737 characters)

We usually stop in when we're here on Maui.
Nice big space, a smattering of flat screens and a decent beer board with a few guest taps. The other day it was a slew of Modern Times beers and Old Rasputin.
Keep in mind however that the better selection of MBC taps is at the Kihei location with 30+ MBC beers.
The food menu (while the Kihei location has more beers, they don't have food aside from the food trucks) is solid but we always get the veggie burger which, combined with the soft, tasty bun, is delicious.
We were there on a weekday shortly after they opened, so service was very attentive. (600 characters)

The vibe was chill but then again it's Hawaii so.....The coco porter was good stuff and when I was there they had a beer called Freight train IPA California style and it surprised me, it was pretty good. (203 characters)
