    One of my favorite breweries... Food is good here and they try to use local ingredients, but what is best is they serve many beers that they only make available in Hawaii. Like Lavaman Red Ale.

    Slow on Sundays during football season until 5pm when they have live music. Get their beer of the week for $3.75/pint! Also check out the free tours at 10:30am and 3pm - get there early to sign up.

    Take the brewery tour & sample at the end. The food was super fresh & tasty. They use the spent grain from brewing to make all the dough; what they can't use they give away to local farmers for free.

    Bangers and mash and turkey pesto were delicious but no pictures because it was gone too fast. And of course the beers are great too. They do offer beer pairings with many of the dishes.

    The original Kona Brewing company brewery. Grab lunch or dinner, with gourmet pizzas and sandwiches. Drink a specialty brew only offered here. Later, pick up Kona Brewing merchandise as a souvenir.

    We stopped in before our flight home from our honeymoon. We shared a pizza and the fish tacos. Beers were had and it was a great atmosphere to spend out last few hours. Wouldn't change a thing!

    A great spot to stop for a beer. It's ridiculous trying to get in here, so consult your map app before trying to eyeball the route in.

    Get your beer and pizza fix here. Ask for the seasonal brews - the ginger and lemongrass infused beer was fantastic. The Puna Pie rocked with large chunks of roasted garlic and smoked mozzarella.

    Don't bother with the other entrees - just get a salad and pizza. They're all good, but my go-tos are Kohala, Kau Pesto and Puna Pie. Don't forget the beer!

    Even on a rainy dreary day, it's great. Servers cheerful and helpful. Food was delicious. Had the BBQ Chic sandwich, wife the Shrimp sandwich. Fantastic chips. Get the beer sampler. Heck, get two.

    Fun, nice atmosphere, great beer and food! I like the wings, and all the beers are great. Get a flight or go exotic. Nothing much gluten free except salads, though

    The tour is a steal. $5 for 4 beer samples, a souvenir glass, and a lot of knowledge. The restaurant also serves amazing food.

    Stopped over at Kona Pub & Brewery. Had a delicious Pizza and a Hanalei IPA beer. Great service. Highly recommend this place with aloha flair. Try it out for yourself.

    Please, if you like pepperoni, peppers and a little spice, do yourself a favor and get the Pepperoni Ali'i! Oh and try as many of their beers as you can, I couldn't find one I didn't like!!

    Quite possibly the best Poke' I have ever had! The beer with a hint of passion fruit is light crips and so smooth!

    Delicious Ahi Poke! I got a sampler for the beer - I enjoyed Koko Brown and Pipeline Porter a lot. But unfortunately the Kanaha Blonde was too watery, and the Wailua Wheat has an unpleasant taste.

    Oh, man, the beer! Frickin' fantastic! The long wait is my only complaint. Everything else was top-notch. Great food, excellent service, and did I mention the beer?!!?

    If you're alone, just head to the bar, find a seat, and talk to locals, visitors, and staff. Great place to get to know people and have good food and beer!

    Pretty close to the airport, we grabbed a tasting flight and some lunch. Perfect way to relax into your arrival at the big island. Lots of outdoor seating.

    If you get a pizza I recommend getting the spicy marinara sauce that comes on the pele pizza either on the pizza or on the side it's great!! Wash it down with a fire Rock pale ale to add to make epic.

    the kalua pork pizza was amazing! I recommend trying one of the beers you can't get in a bottle back home, like the black sands porter.

    Get a flight to try all the beers not sold on the mainland. Recommend splitting a pizza with your ohana and pals. Expect a wait for dinner

    Try the shrimp melt or Chipotle Chorizo Queso- you won't be disappointed either way! Wash anything down with a brewski of course!

    Your favorite Kona beers will taste different here because this is one of the few (only?) spots to get Kona beer brewed on the island rather than the mainland.
