This place confused my GPS but I eventually found it by going way past it to a side street and coming up behind it. There is a growler stand outside that has different hour than the restaurant. Next thing you see is the gift shop and it was jam packed with a long line. So I headed to the restaurant and it was jam packed with a long line (Sunday around 1 PM). So i went through the restaurant to the bar, which was jam packed with a long line. Checked the beerlist and I had had everything on it, most things I had seen on tap on every island. So I bailed. Saw that flights were available. Pizzas looked more like bready cakes, the rest of the food looked OK. Very commercial place. Good match for ABInBev I'd say. At least it looks like they're brewing in Hawaii, apparently they used to ship all their beer in. Oh well, extra points for that.

We had a late dinner there on a busy Wednesday night. Good service, great selection of beers. The atmosphere is Hawaii, so that’s tough to mess up. The food was good too. The prices seem normal for the area.

Late lunch and beers after a snorkel tour. I definitely agree with Jow’s opinion regarding the oddly corporate feel about the place. The pizza and fish tacos were both excellent, and the beers were tasty. I would have liked to have seen a couple of guest taps, but that’s not really a make or break thing for me. Definitely a go-to place on the Big Island.

Great brewery. Food outstanding (go with the pot roast). Nice selection of more intense beers than used to from Kona Brewing...nicely done. Can’t wait to go back.

Stopped in after a few hours in tattoo chair. Kinda corporate feel but it is a bug brewery and it’s still pretty cool. All main stays and 5 seasonal a on so that’s cool. Friendly but busy staff. Food was quite good. Beers are solid and I needed a drink

It was 95 with 80% humidity when we visited and this place has no A/C. This may skew my review. We found a place to sit near the bar and I ordered a beer from the bartender. The waitress then scolded me for not ordering from her an said if we didn’t want to order from her, we would have to move. Not a great start. Finally, we settled in, ordered some pizza and more beer. The beer was cold an the pizza good. The outside patio seemed nice if it had been cooler and there is WIFI available.
