A - Midwest wood style brew house with a nice, semi-tropical outdoor seating area. The location is in the middle of an industrial sector, but they do a great job of making it feel secluded.

Q - A mixed bag. Their Imperial Coffee Stout and Mauka Makai were stellar, but their Saison was flat and tasted a bit stale. Their glassware left a lot to be desired. They basically have american tumblers or tulips, and they almost never use their tulips.

Sr - Another mixed bag. I went there twice. The fist time was great, and the server brought over a specialty beer list of brewery-only releases that had a full page of information on 10 some-odd beers; everything form what inspired the beer to where the ingredients were sourced. But the second time the server couldn't seem to care less about us. I asked if she has the specialty list and she said, "oh, sorry we're out of a bunch of those" and then didn't elaborate on exactly what they did or didn't have. I had to order by memory, and it just so happened that they still had the two beers I was looking for.

Sl - An awesome selection of 8 year-rounds, 1 seasonal, and about 6 brewery-only releases.

F - Great food here. They're known for their pizza (think California Pizza Kitchen), but everything I've had on the menu has been top notch. Imho the food is what really puts this place over the top. If you're looking for good food and good beer, this is THE best place to go in the state.

O - The only problem with this place is that it's incredibly popular, and they're bound to have a 3-4 styles kicked at any given time. Also expect 1-2 hour waits Fri-Sun during prime hours. (1,634 characters)

Great place to have lunch and a fight of beers. It is walking distance from the dock, but it is an uphill climb and no sidewalks in some areas so you need to cut through a parking lot. Good ambience and good food. The souvenirs are expensive. (243 characters)

If you have the chance to visit the Big Island, make a stop at Kona Brewing's brewery/restaurant. Excellent outdoor seating among palm trees. Nighttime sitting outdoors with a brew and one of their pizzas or other goodies, while sipping one of their fresh ales is paradise! (273 characters)

Missed the brewery tour the one day I stopped in. Just ate so didn't eat in the ajacent restaurant. Did drink a few pints at the beer garden. Very well set up. Pints were tasty and conveniently got a growler to go. (215 characters)
