Finally! This is what hawaii has been needing forever! 24 taps over 200 different bottles, I'm in heaven! When you walk in you feel like you are in the bottom of a beer glass. the former Tropics has transfomed into a beautiful bar. A large 12 seat bar and tables inside as well as outside. Yep you can drink on their lanai! When I went they had live music and if I remember correctly th owner said they will have live music every night. (Jazz, blues, bluegrass). Some of the staff is knowledgable with beer and if not they were happy to find out more info or give a small taster. The kitchen is not open yet but the chalk board behind the bar says it will be open the week of june 15th. I'm quite sure I will be taking many more trips to Real, especially with all the great food I've been hearing about.

For Honolulu, this place is top notch. Great selection of beer. The ambience, service and food were all excellent. It was pricey, but this is Hawaii. Would recommend to anyone living or staying on Oahu. A $2.00 bus ride from Waikiki and a half mile walk gets you there.

Amazing beer bar. One of the best in the world
No longer live in Hawaii, but when I'm visiting I will always make it into REAL a gastropub. One of only a handful of true beer bars in Hawaii. The first and best of them all, although Brew'd and P+J are doing a great job as well.

I was in Hawaii recently for my honeymoon, and while on Oahu I made it a point to visit this place. I had read and heard nothing but good things about REAL, and it did not disappoint!

Really great/warm atmosphere. Very friendly and laid back. A nice space in the Ward area of Honolulu. Two floors, bar downstairs, and more dining space on the second floor. Indoor and outdoor seating. They have 29 (30?) rotating taps, including a couple of nitro options. A nice variety of domestic craft, locals (Maui Brewing and Big Island Brewhaus both make very good to great beer), and imports (especially Belgians). A very nice bottle selection as well. If I had to take a shot in the dark, I'd guess they have a couple of hundred different bottled beers to choose from.

Service was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Willing to make suggestions or answer questions about most of the beers. My understanding is that every server at this place is a Certified Beer Server through the Cicerone program.

We also ate while we were there, as we needed something to help us soak up all of the excellent beers we were drinking. I ordered poutine and some pork sliders, and my wife ordered mac'n'cheese and some portabello sliders. Everything was delicious, and fresh. Food is served small plate style, but reasonably priced.

I cannot recommend this place more if you're in Hawaii and on the island of Oahu. You will not find anything else like this in the islands. A top notch craft beer bar all around.
