(Visited 12/2010): Visited the Kona airport Pub while waiting for our departing flight from our cruise vacation. It is located in the mainland terminal right past security.

The decor is not as nice as the actual brewery of course as it is an airport, but they do retain the primary color scheme and Kona posters seen at the other spot. The bar is located on the right side, with table seating throughout the rest of the space. Several TVs are around and there are plenty of windows.

Kona’s airport location carries the flagship beers like Longboard
Island Lager, Fire Rock Pale Ale, Big Wave Golden Ale, Wailua Wheat and Pipeline Porter on draught. They also carry 2 seasonals and a couple macros on tap. I did not note the bottle selection.

Service during our visit was decent all things considered. Our server was not a beer expert but was friendly and fairly attentive. Prices were inflated even by airport and Hawaii standards though.

The food here is mostly standard airport restaurant type fare with a Kona twist, such as wings marinated in Kona beer sauce. They also have pizza, sandwiches, ribs etc. Our dishes were both good.

Overall I am of an "any port in a storm" mentality when in airports and a person could do a lot worse than a Pipeline Porter while stuck in one.
