As we are staying in Kailua-Kona, this quickly became our regular final stop of the afternoon. All sorts of interesting, seasonal beers, which suited my island vacation mood perfectly.

very interesting tour of the Kona brewery, including tastings of their daily brews. Very educational tour guide explained the process, ingredients and variations of brews. We stayed for dinner in the adjoining restaurant which was also delicious.

Great beer tour! Only $5 a person. My husband and I just signed up last minute at the "booth" they had right by the restaurant entrance. The tour inside the beer-making facility wasn't super interesting, was just a quick talk. However, the beer tasting was...More

The beer was great! Food amazing! Staff was super nice and friendly! We sampled several of the beers and drank a couple glasses. Was perfect place to chill out after a long day at the beach!

Great beer, lively atmosphere, food was amazing! Deserves rep for having the best pizza. Service a bit slow for a Thursday but maybe this is just island time. Highly recommend.

Hi, we are visiting from a cruise ship in September, is it advisable to prebook and can you walk from the pier to the brewery ?

Sorry missed this. It's an easy walk. Google clocks it as .8 mile but you can go up steps to the right of their lot. Ask for directions but it is closer to .5 mile. Reservations not necessary.have fun.

I'll have my family in tow. I assume the restaurant is child friendly. What about the tour? Can children walk through with us?

I see from a previous reviewer that children must be 15 or older for the tour. But you can verify when you call to reserve, since you need to make a reservation.
