A popular restaurant close to the beach that offers a few craft beers for a hefty price. Standard local beers from Kona on flight + the "duke’s golden ale" which is just another golden ale. They had a few beers from Iron Fist but Duke’s is no beer destination. Ambiance and food was great and that is probably what they focus on so it is really just a plus that they also serve a few craft beers

Very popular and crowded venue in Waikiki. Not really a beer place, much more popular for its signature Mai-Tai cocktails seating by the beach while relaxing to some acoustic live music. Beer-wise, they have about 10 taps including most classic Kona brews (also available in sampler), a few west coast ales and a couple macro lagers. Food at the barefoot bar is fine but mostly snack size. Obviously, expect to pay a bit of a premium considering the location and popularity of the place.

Nothing like a beer destination, in fact the only draw for a beer person is the guarantee of something unique in the form of Duke’s Blonde Ale, which is supposedly only made for them. But it could actually just be Big Wave Golden Ale... who knows. So here you can get breakfast buffet of endless ham and egg sandwiches and pineapple slices and beer and cocktails and you can come in and leave by the sandy Waikiki beach.
