Cute place. It was full inside. We took a table on the outdoor patio, which was fine but had less character than the inside. Service was slower to arrive out there, but perfectly friendly. The food was alright, not as good as it sounded on the menu but still fun. The beers were decent. We went during happy hour and ordered pints because itís a better value versus samplers.

Stopped by on the way from Kona to Hilo early Sunday afternoon. So far, this is one of the best on the Islands. We each had samplers, then dug into the food, which was very good and reasonably priced for the Islands. Beers were all good to excellent, got to try a few of their specials, and the brewer Tom was around so got to meet him and chat for a bit. He is doing great things there. If you find yourself up that way stop by, and it is worth a day trip to go up there. Staff is very knowledgable about the beers made there and by the time we left the place was packed. Nice Hawaiian vibes.

Nice beer selection. Rather small inside bar area and tables. Tables outside are nice on a pleasant day. Out of several beers but still quite a few on tap. Plenty of parking mid afternoon. Getting a seat at the bar for more than one could be tough. I would stop in anytime for a beer.

Very good brewpub with a lot of nice local people. The beers are quite good. They had a good smoked lager, an Irish Red which they tap with Nitro, a good Red IPA and some other nice beers. This is the best brewery on Big Island when it comes to beer selection and quality. They have mainly Mexican food which is ok. Overall a great beer place you should not miss when you are on the island.

The night I visited, 13 beers on tap in a tantalizing variety of styles including Pale Ales, Belgian Ales, Wheat, Lager, and a Smoked Bach. I chose the Dark Sabbath Belgian Strong Ale and followed that with the White Mountain Porter and was not disappointed.
The menu is Mexican and the service was friendly. The fish tacos were fine, nothing to rave about...but the beer was great and that is what I came for.

This is a fantastic little brewery. Tasty, above-average beer, and a great selection of beer, too. I think they had 10 to 12 house brews on tap when I visited, plus some guest taps. Oh, and two of the house beers on tap during my visit were very well-made Belgians, which surprised me. Good/friendly service, albeit a little slow because it was busy. Mexican food is unique and tasty. Ambiance is comfortable and artsy (think Mountain Sun in Boulder), but itís a little cramped, especially when it gets busy. Oh, and it gets a little loud, acoustically. Overall, if youíre in the area, this is a must-stop. Come to think of it, even if youíre not in the area, itís still worth the one-hour drive from Kailua-Kona.

An excellent spot in the middle of seemingly nowhere. Currently, it is just a restaurant with an excellent selection of craft beer. But soon they will be brewing their own! I was very excited to find several Hawaiíian beers on draft, including Maui Coconut Porter!
The food was excellent, the service very friendly and knowledgeable. Absolutely worth the drive from Kona or Hilo if you are on the Big Island.
