We were visiting friends over the Xmas holidays on Hawaii and spent the day at Kona. We picked up some lunch at Broke Da Mouth and spent mid-day at the Airport Beach eating, talking stories and playing with my youngest son in the tide pools. Afterwards, we headed over to Ola for a taster (wife and friend) and couple of beers (me). With my son on the iPad w/headphones, life was good.

The brewery is in an industrial section just a couple of blocks away from the Kona Brewery (which we visit again). Ola is just a year old and has a nice tap room next to the operational brewery. Parking is a little limited. As I mentioned, they allow kids, and had a combination of locals an tourists.

Service was professional and fast, but not the most friendly (Note: There was only person for most of the time so I was fine with it). He did a great job with the tasters which can sometimes be slow and a pain.

There is no food and I didn't see anyone with food from outside, but it doesn't mean that it isn't allowed. Just don't know.

There beer and cider selection was solid and all of the beers were good (none were outstanding). Overall, I would/will go back. Worth a stop when you are in Kona!

Cool brewery, beer only with a food truck outside. Plenty of seating. They have a good selection of beer and cider. Beer was good but not exceptional. My wife said the cider flight was very good. It was busy the afternoon I was there. Only 2 bartenders and they were struggling to serve and wash glasses. If you want to drink beer and not deal with food service like at Kona, I would suggest coming to this place.
