Kona Pub & Brewery
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.
