I don't drink beer, so maybe I shouldn't have gone to a brewery - but I was hoping for some decent pizza. I was disappointed in both the pepperoni and the Margherita pizza. They were both just not particularly tasty, and the dough was just...More

Love this place. Pepperoni rolls are out of this world. They brew their own beer and have various varieties snd specials. Pizza is the way to go, but they do have salads, sandwiches and tacos

Good place for a drink late afternoon. We got a $10 pizza which was good to share over a cocktail. Nice wait staff.

The tour is quite limited and short. You get a brief look into main warehouse where the beer is brewed and a cold store. Main part is testing a wide range of Kona Beers!

This was the second time I joined the short tour of the brewery, the guide, Beth, was excellent, very informative and personable. Best part? The tasting at the conclusion, 4 samples, light to dark. Bonus was the keychain souvenir with the Kona Brewery logo. We...More

Went just for beer one time. Very crowded, but we were able to order beers without a problem at the bar and found a bench outside to sit at. So, even if it is crowded, you don't have to wait if you are not looking...More
