Went after lunch today - beautiful building and big space. Every staff member I met was friendly and helpful. Something like 26 beers on tap with 2-3 guest taps. High quality all-around including the imperial coconut porter. Great music, great crowd, great beer.

Beautiful new facility located on the West side of Maui. My girlfriend I couldn't pass up an opportunity to take a 5 minute ride from our resort to this new location to get out of the sun for an hour or two or good beer, food and to let our bodies relax from the Maui sun.

The tasting room as is the whole location is brand new and the quality is great as you'd expect with brand new facilities. The vibe was chill, it was pretty empty actually which was nice for us as we were able to sit back and relax and enjoy our beer and food in peace away from the resort and beach crowds. The sun was out and it was a gorgeous day outside, while others would say the vibe was non-existent it was just what we were looking for.

Being so slow we were able to take our time ordering and talking to the bartender about the beers on tap and help craft a perfect selection of what we were looking for as the selection they had was very good, if I can recall there was ~15 beers on tap, most MBC, but a few other locals and Kona BCs as well.

I collect growlers of breweries I visit and MBC's growler has to be one of my favorites thus far. Their largest comes in a DrinkTank (google them if you have to), but with the MBC logo slapped on it, this growler turned out to be my favorite thing I brought back off the island. We filled her up with their Bikini Blonde, nothing special about the beer other than it's freshness and supreme drinkability in the Maui heat.

Overall this brewery was amazing, I highly recommend if you're in Maui. You can't miss it if you're staying close by.

top notch for a brewery experience - they have a gift shop, brewery tours, and a nice outdoor space to enjoy beer. they don't have food, but have food trucks just outside.

they had like 20+ beers on tap, and all of the brewery exclusive beers I tried were good. good variety of styles as well.

Was able to visit the Kehie location which I understand is relatively new. Nice joint with 12 Maui brews and a few other HI micros. Overall decent selection in a bit of a beer wasteland. No kitchen but frequent food trucks. Don't miss the imp Coconut Porter if available.

This is a beautiful facility, with plenty of great beers on tap. It`s not funky or full of local flavour, but it is a decent place to sample beer you would not find anywhere else. I really enjoyed my visit to Maui, and Maui Brewing helped make it better.

Large selection of craft beer. Open seating to the outside, perfect for Hawaii. Classic micro brewery vibe.

This place is great! You're in Maui. The weather is perfect. The beer is fantastic. What more could you want?

I was very impressed by the beer here. I particularly enjoyed the Coconut Imperial Porter. Delicious.

Made a trip down to the new Kihei brewing facility while staying in Napili for a few days.

Nice new large set up in an industrial park. Some indoor games (giant Jenga, giant connect four, and cornhole) in the entry area. Some scattered seating inside, and a decent outdoor seating area just off the taproom. They also had a food truck parked out front.

Quality is above average. Everything I tried was at least solid, but I didn't think that any of the beers were exceptional though.

Service was good. We spoke to a couple of employees and they were both friendly and prompt.

Selection was outstanding. They had 25 of their beers on tap. I wish they had a few more high gravity offerings, but I understand having lighter stuff in a warm climate.

Overall a very nice spot, that I am glad I went out of my way to check out.

This is for the Brew Pub not at the brewery. The brewery tasting room was pretty lame, no food, no atmosphere but you could take a tour for only $5 and you got a flight of samples of 4 of the top sellers.

The pub had excellent food. Best food of any brewpub I have been in. Ahi tuna salad and a pickled brisket that were excellent and priced very reasonable, especially for Maui. Selection of beers on tap was excellent. They had two hard to get beers that were not at the brewery and a lot to choose from and some wines. Overall it was a fun stop. They don't have the best beers in the world but they hold up well and hey it's in Maui.
