Kona Pub & Brewery

75–5629 Kuakini Hwy.
Kona Brewing Co.
Kailua-Kona, Big Island, HI, 96740, United States
TEL: (808) 334-2739

This brewpub, located on the Big Island’s western coast, opened in 1998. Constructed largely from locally gleaned materials, it has a bar made from native Ohia wood and a repurposed corrugated metal roof from a former Holualoa distillery. Seating is available at tables around the U-shaped indoor bar or at umbrella-shaded tables on the 2,000-square-foot, tropical-themed lanai. Hand-crafted beers range from pale ales, to wheats, to porters. Exclusive to the pub is the Da Grind Buzz Kona Coffee Stout, which is brewed with beans grown near town. Servers provide guidance for pairing beers with menu items such as hand-tossed pizzas, Kalua pork sandwiches, and lager-braised bratwurst.

Insider Tip:

Call ahead to participate in a free brewery tour and tasting before or after lunch.
