In the far corner of a strip mall, so there was plenty of parking. It looked closed from a distance, but as I got closer it turns out the places on either side of it are closed (as in, for lease). Inside is a bit dark, large square bar on one side and the rest is restaurant tables. Sadly no outdoor seating. Twenty of their beers on offer, eight regulars and 12 seasonals or small batches. Just two guests, a cider and a beer, plus a few CA bottles to go (Bruery and something else I can't remember). One beer available here was not available yesterday at the brewery. Four ounce pours or flights of four are possible for any beer, only the price varies (this wasn't possible at the brewery itself, where I couldn't include a 10+% Belgian strong in my flight; here I could, and since I didn't like it, I only had to deal with 4 ounces of it!). Food was decent bar/pub food. Staff were OK. If you can only visit one, go to the brewery.
Visited on 23/04/14 around 3pm.
The brewpub is a modern (ish) facility at the edge of a mall about 5 or so miles from downtown Lahaina.
18 of their own beers on tap with quite a few seasonal/one offs that don’t get canned or widely distributed.
$6 for 4 x 4oz samplers made the ticking pretty effortless.
We sat at the bar which has a tray of crushed ice built into it to keep your drinks chilled!
The place was fairly busy considering it was twixt lunch and dinner and the service was friendly and efficient.
Didn’t eat a full blown meal but grazed on sliders which were tasty enough.
They offer a full bar servce with a range of cocktails also.
Solid stop if in the area, probably the one go to destination on the island.
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.
(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.
Suburban place in a strip mall with zero character, but it does have a bar you can sit at and there were some locals there. A guy sitting next to me ordered a slice of pizza. It looked like it came out of a 7-11 microwave. We came during happy hour and I wanted to take advantage of the prices so didn’t get a sampler and instead ordered pints. Decent beer selection.
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.

Was lucky enough to be within a five minute walk of the brewpub while we stayed here for the new year. Besides their three main beers they had around 10 or so seasonal offerings on. I tried as many as I could but there is only so much time one can spend away from the beach. I didn’t have any beer that I thought was bad, or even below average, actually. The mild was great, so was the Pale Ale. The food was a bit pricey, but very tasty and most seemed to be somehow cooked with beer. The place itself is sort of boring. It’s very wide open with very little character, but has a long bar to pull a stool up to. The staff was very friendly and made me feel like I’d been coming there for years. If you go you must try the homemade root beer. It’s absolutely fantastic. They also sell growlers which made drinking by the hotel pool much more enjoyable. I really enjoyed the time I spent here and will make sure to come back if I’m ever so lucky to find myself in Maui again.
I was really looking forward to coming here. Thought I would beat the crowd and go there at 11am on a Sunday. Waiter tells me they are turning over their service (from Breakfast to Lunch) and they can’t serve any food for 20 min. That’s fine, give me some beer and I’ll wait. Food ended up taking over an hour. Looks like there were 2 waiters for the entire restaurant. Worse service that completely destroyed the experience. I really didn’t blame the waiter as they were definitely short on staff (I saw the waiter sprinting and actually running the entire time I was there). I would have spent a lot more money if the service was quicker (bought more beer, another course of food, and I would have bought a shirt).
