This is one of my favourite brewpubs in the world. The beer is excellent as is the food. The menu is somewhat limited, but what they do, they do well. They do a good job of hiding the fact that the whole thing in built...More

Came here to visit and decided to stay for lunch. Of course the beers were awesome, that is why you see them everywhere in Hawaii. Yeah Wish we could have tried more food because every plate that came out of the kitchen looked really good....More

Today I tried a new seasonal the Purple Grain. Nice and smooth, light chai aftertaste. Pizza is always good, best way to start time on the big island.

I would! We showed up and there was only 1 ticket left. There are only 2 tours daily, at 10:30am & 3pm. The tour is $10 which includes the sampling of 4 beers, so it pays for itself.
