Located in a strip mall north of Lahaina, the brewpub was an easy find right off the highway and very close to the resort I was staying at in Ka’anapali which was convenient for a few visits during my week there. The ambiance is fairly plain by modern brewpub standards. It has the nuevo-industrial decor vibe going on with there being very little, if any, Hawaiian elements one would expect. Not sure if they are trying to downplay that aspect or avoid the touristy elements common elsewhere. EIther way, I wasnt disappointed but neither was I impressed with the place. There was a huge selection of their brewers lineup available - I did not count but it was at least in the high teens. A couple of very nice guest taps from California. The sampler was limited to a measly 4 selections and they would not bring two out at once - a little off putting to say the least. The beer was pleasing, the waitstaff was slow and uninformed, the seating was spacious. Food selection was decent fare, nothing that stood out but it was reasonably priced and diverse enough for my needs. A very nice place that I would make a point to visit whenever the opportunity arises, but I feel that if they could try just a bit harder they could make this place stellar.

Maui beer is pretty damn good and the food was awesome. Great service and at an inexpensive price for paradise.

Quite a few beers on tap. Liked the Double Overhead IPA most. Also burgers were decent. Overall a nice pub, beer is not brewed at the premises. If you play Kanapali or Kapalua you should stop here.

This is a surprisingly good place for a casual dinner and some craft beers, considering you are on Maui and there isn’t much else like it on the island. They have a nice selection of beers, as well as a cool ice bar to keep your drink cool. Food is above average.

Decent little spot to grab a bite to eat, but the reason to come here is the awesome selection of Maui beers, many of which were quite good in my opinion. While the brewery only had the ones that they can in the tasting room when we visited, the brewpub had 16 Maui beers, plus 4 or 5 guest taps! Fantastic! They offered four taster flights for the ticking inclined as well! If you think Maui makes a nice beer, and most people I know do (particularly the Coconut Porter, which is hard not to like), I’d definitely recommend a stop in here to try their draft only offerings.

Dinner and beers with the family on a Sunday night. The space is big and open, pretty loud and boisterous. It’s a well designed room, though you would have no indication that you are in Maui (hardly any windows). The service we had was knowledgeable and attentive. I was impressed by the size and range of the beer list, they had 13 Maui beers on + 4 guest taps. Overall, well worth the visit when in Maui. NOTE ABOUT LOCATION: I was initially a tad confused with the Lahaina address - the brewpub is not located in Lahaina town, rather in the Kapuala area, approximately 5 miles north of Kannapali.

82 = ★★★˝ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

We had dinner here during our vacation to Maui. The food & service were good plus they had 18 Maui beers on tap! If in Maui, this is a "must visit" place.

We stopped in here on our trip to Maui and liked it so much we went back again. Great selection of beers and the food was pretty good. Sit at the bar if you can. Best seats in the house.

For some reason I really loved this place. Sometimes that’s what vacation will do for you I suppose. The beer selection was fairly wide though nothing really blew my mind. They tasted great in the context and moment though. Prices were what I expected for a Maui brewery, that is to say touristy.

(Visited 12/2010): Maui Brewing Co’s brewpub location is in the Kahana Gateway Center on Honoapiilani Highway. There is a good-sized parking lot in the plaza. The interior is open with a utilitarian look and feel. Brewing equipment is viewable behind glass, and there is a huge chalkboard that lists available beers. The bar is toward the rear of the space, and there is bench/table seating elsewhere. One cool aspect of the decor is lighting made out of kegs. The brewpub’s selection includes 9 house beers plus 2 guest taps. The Maui beers include most of the flagship offerings plus some more unique beers like a smoked hemp ale, mango wheat, jalapeno pepper Blonde and a Belgian Abbey. All of their beers are solid. Service on a weekday lunch was good. Both our server and the bartender were knowledgeable and friendly. Food at Maui is good as well. We both enjoyed our sandwiches and seafood dishes. Overall this spot was well worth the drive from the port, and I would recommend to anyone visiting the island.
