The big Kona brewery made us wait to avoid letting us have a happy hour, which was weak. They had a bunch of seasonals that were interesting. Service was fine once we got to the bar. Food looked bad so we didnít eat.

A sprawling and rather impressive complex. Several of the seasonal beers were good, so itís definitely worth coming. Too bad about the bad management, though. We came during happy hour, and they were empty. Just a few tables were taken. But they told several parties before us, and several after us, we would have to wait 20 minutes for a table. We sauntered up to the bar instead. See, it occurred to me: they stall people to let the clock run out on happy hour. Even at the bar, service was deadly slow and unnecessarily neglectful. What they call happy hour becomes shortened into a few frustrating, moderately contented minutes. Begrudgingly, I would recommend the place, and would likely return when on Big Island. Did not eat here, and probably would not. Worth noting that although the beers arenít as good, the vibe, service, and especially the view at Humpyís are far superior and itís pretty close by...

This place is a must stop if on the Big Island. Stopped by on vacation celebrating a couple of different events with my partner and we each had a sampler and split an appetizer. Nice variety of beers not seen in bottles on the mainland, most noticeably a special IPA and a Saison, as well as a mild ale, Lemongrass Luau. Bartenders were both pretty chatty and helpful as far as suggesting other restaurants and beer joints on the Island. Food we had was good, and it seemed that every couple that sat next to us was on their honeymoon. Great stop, nice bar, good staff, outside dining also. Update: Stopped back for dinner, great Kale salad, good pizza with a spent grain crust!

Go here for the beer and the food. The decor and ambiance are great despite being at the back of an industrial complex with no ocean view. Maybe theyíll build up on the roof top in the future and catch the view and the breezes. That would be awesome. Catch some beers here that are not bottled and shipped. I loved the stouts. Excellent. Tucked away just a couple minutes from Alii drive and definitely worth the visit if you like great beer and good food. Have a growler? Get it filled at the walk up window in the parking lot. No need to brave the crowd inside to get awesome brew to go.

Nice laid back atmosphere. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Pizza was pretty good. Beer was average. Nice outside seating with a/c indoor seating. Overall this was a bit pricey for what you get but worth the trip.

A great place to go and have a beer, and a specially made one too. Many times they have one-offs that you canít get anywhere else but the brewery. Food is pretty good too. Great place to hangout and have a beer on the Big Island.

One of our favourite places in our 2 week visit to the islands. We waited for nearly an hour to be seated and it was worth it. Great food (delicious fish tacos), and great beers, fun vibe (but BUSY!), Iíd come back for sure.
