I had no idea what to expect from this place. The location used to house a restaurant that locals told me was awful. I arrived for the first time at noon on a Sunday. The place was, as expected, not crowded. It was sparkling clean. The bar is a large oval with an ice rail that keeps drinks cold while you drink them. This is kind of odd for a brewpub, but is good for water, wine, and mixed drinks.

There were 12 Maui brews on tap and three guest taps. There was a nice assortment of beer from a light summer lager to smoked rye IPA. Most of the beers were on the light side, which isn't bad given the climate, but the Old Chinwig Strong Ale and Red Cock Dopplebock were lusty. The guest taps included Pizza Port Big Wednesday Belgian IPA. The other two were from a Colorado brewer I was unfamiliar with and one more.

The food was equal to the beer or surpassed it. The Maui onion soup was great. The steamers were some of the best I've eaten. My wife loved the salads and the slider. I devoured the bratwurst, which was better than I thought possible on Maui.

We loved the place enough to go back a couple days later. The only thing that changed was the daily special, the bartender, and a few different brews. The place delivered again.

Given the state of beer selection on Maui, this place is a must stop.

Great brewery pub - incredible staff (how can you not be happy, you're in Hawaii), and a big list of their brews. The bartender was very knowledgeable about the beers, we both brew ourselves and although I was in their establishment for less than an hour, we struck up a friendship. I've spoken with him via email a couple times since our visit.

If you're in the area - you're a lucky bastard, it's beautiful - stop here and sample a wide assortment of very good beers. You'll be happy you did.

Great service and really good food. That said, go for the beer. Fresh Maui brews and other microbrews are great.

Empty kegs serve as light fixtures. Pretty cool. Lots of beer take home options too!

Pizza and wings were excellent. But they offer more "sophisticated" fare. Will try those next visit.

A great place to grab a bite and a pint. 15+ taps and lots of new beers to try. Food is great pub food and is reasonably priced. A place you can bring the whole family or go out with your buddies for a drink. Love the use of old kegs as lights and decorations.

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!

Maui Brewing has some tasty beers, so I made it a point to stop by here when on vacation. The first thing that struck me was just how vast their beer selection was. I had tried some of their beer they distribute in the past, but was blown away by all of the different beers they had on tap.

The atmosphere was decent, although nothing spectacular (the brewpub is in a strip mall) it felt like any other brewpub you would go to, definitely a family environment. The service was good and the food was actually quite good as well. Prices were reasonable, especially considering how expensive Hawaii can be.

I would recommend anyone who loves beer to stop by the Maui Brewing pub when you are on Maui!

Maui Brewing is a pretty cool place in a small shopping center. Inside has a slightly industrial feel with small kegs cut in half and used as light covers and the like. They offer up around 15 of their own beers and a few guest taps too. Their offerings represent a full range of beer styles and I am pretty sure anyone can find something they would enjoy. Service is pretty average though. Their food is pretty average and I would probably recommend not eating here for a full meal. Their beer prices are reasonable but their food items can be pretty steep. This is a must visit place if you are on Maui.
