On the kitchen side our pub-fare menu includes a large choice of pupus, soups, salads, wraps, sandwiches, burgers as well as a variety of fresh fish and mouth-watering entrees. We also feature a keiki menu for the little ones. Our full bar serves wine, mixed drinks, and cocktails. There are five 55" flat screen HDTVs throughout the pub to watch all the games. Brewery tours are available upon request. Currently we sell and fill growlers for beer to go, and keg rentals will soon be available.

Popped in for a quick visit but it didnít stand out much, to say the least. Pretty forgettable range of beers, Very early 90s, here for the novelty of brewing sort of thing. Good for locals, but otherwise not a destination.

In a warehouse in Port Allen Very bare bones, soulless place. Not going to crush it too much for that as most of the area was lacking soul anyway. Beers were very average. Out of captain Cook, so tried the fonz IPA. Not good. Next beer was the lilikoi golden ale, not good either. No guests taps besides a cider. Bartender was helpful and nice. On entrťe we had was good. Wine was crap. Lots of souvenirs. Bought one for the novelty value. Reminded me of some of the early 90ís brewpubs that sprouted up in the US in smaller towns. Good for a quick bite when coming back from Waimea canyon and looking at the coast.

In a word, generic. The atmosphere is a bare-bones sports bar, big screen TVs abound (a Broncos/Dolphins game was on the whole time I was there, wheeeee). Service was functional although no one knew much about the beer (there was a special lager on and I got conflicting info even just about what the name might be). Generic beer styles across the board...wheat, pale, IPA, amber, brown, porter. And the quality of the four I spent time evaluating were all very mediocre and plain. I guess itís worth a stop if you just like ticking for tickingís sake, but youíre not going to find anything remarkable. Food was pretty typical of the island in general...overcooked fish and bland sides.

Stopped by on the way back from Waimea Canyon. This warehouse style pub is located on the main drag on the way down to Port Allen, across from the boat tour operators. Started with a sampler of both the IPAís, the Red, and the Porter, all good beers. They had a special ale on tap, brewed with Taro root, so tried that also. Food was reasonably priced and we split two of the special appetizers which were both excellent. All the staff were helpful and attentive, and the bartender was very knowledgable about the beers. This is a must stop if you are on the Garden Island.

Great little spot tucked off the beaten path. Huge menu with good looking food that we didnt get to try, sadly. Beers were good, with a couple that were really good, staff was amazingly friendly, very cool neighbourhood vibe. Iíd make an effort to come back here for a meal and more chill time.

This place is tucked away and easy to miss. Had to visit since it was the only brewery in Kauai. Inside has a warehouse/industrial feel and is pretty typical brewpub. Food was sort of a mixed bag. Our appetizer was so-so, my wifeís fish was a little bland, but my fish and chips were quite good. Much better selection of beer than I anticipated. I tried several of their house beers, none of which really stand out as extraordinary, but all of which were quite decent. Prices were pretty reasonable, especially for Kauai. Would definitely go back.

The food is average and the warehouse ambiance is poor. None the less the beers are all very balanced and generally distinct. Considering that they are in Hawaii, I thought the value was actually pretty good as well. The service was excellent as well. I wish they would send some of their beers over to Oahu because some of their stuff is a lot better than what the other local breweries offer.

Somewhat soulless industrial unit-cum-brewpub on the road leading down to the docks in Port Allen. Not that Iím arsed. Great pupus, relentlessly attentive service, essential souvenirs. The westernmost brewery on Earth, remember. After youíve sampled every beer theyíve got youíll probably want to stagger next door for a cock-emblazoned red dirt t-shirt and over the road for a thumb piano. Take a growler of Captain Cook and Pakala Porter with you. Worth a look.

Best brewery on Kauai! Okay, itís also the only brewery but it would be worth a visit even if it wasnít. Located in an industrial building just off the main "highway" along the southwest shore, itís a long haul from the northeast side if thatís where youíre staying -- but you were planning on driving up Route 550 for the views of Na Pali anyway, right? Canít comment on the food as we were on a liquid diet that afternoon but the beers were good, the service friendly (if not all that knowledgeable) and the atmosphere a nice temporary escape from the beach vibe.

Just happened to stumble on this place on the way to a boat trip out of the Harbor here. A cool little spot that just opened this week. Didnít try the food, and only had time for a few samplings of beer, but they were pretty solid offerings, and they had 9 of their own plus 5 guest taps. Pretty impressive selection for a place this new. Definitely worth a stop if you are nearby.
