Ambiance isn’t bad. Decent layout. View of the Pacific out of the back. Service was prompt, responsive, and down to earth. Nice selection of a number of Maui Brewing beers you won’t find elsewhere. Several pub food choices for good prices. I dig this place quite a bit.
Your average brewpub, but on Hawaii. They have a huge list of beers of which I think only 4 are available in cans on the island. I had two tasters (8 beers) which wasn’t even half of the ones they carry. All of them were good, but not great. To me their coconut porter is still their best brew, surprisingly.
Don’t go there for the food. We had the chili and some buffalo wings, both weren’t particularly good.
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.
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 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
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.
