The original Kona Brewery is still alive and well in Kailua-Kona! There are two taproom locations. The original brewpub in Kailua-Kona right next to our brewery, and another on the island of Oahu. You’ll find plenty of food, fresh Kona beer and aloha spirit.
We have built one of the most sustainable breweries in the world, located right here in our hometown of Kailua-Kona.
Since we opened over 25 years ago, Kona Brewing Co. has been committed to making locally brewed beers in the most environmentally responsible way possible. When we outgrew our original brewery years ago, we wanted to find a way to expand without putting pressure on our island home’s precious resources. In 2021, our brand-new 30,000-square foot brewery will open as one of the most sustainable breweries in the world. Located just down the road from the original Kona brewery and brewpub, the new brewery will have an annual capacity of 100,000 barrels and include a canning line so that we can package more of our island brews in this portable, lightweight package!
Kona Brewing Co. is proud to be expanding production in our hometown while setting the standard for brewing beer in a way that’s efficient and environmentally responsible. By brewing more beer on the islands, we decrease our carbon footprint and overall impact on the environment. Kona also teamed up with innovators in technology and sustainability to invest in new eco-friendly brewing technology. Our new brewery will have solar panels covering every square inch of the roof, produce 100% of our CO₂ thanks to a state-of-the-art CO₂ recovery system, and generate an estimated 50% of our water and one-third of our energy needs.
We hope to see you soon, Mahalo!

Kailua-Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island is the site of our brewery and first restaurant.
The brewpub opened in November 1998. In true Aloha spirit, we opted to make it out of locally-sourced materials, and we even built a 2,000 square-foot outdoor lanai that lets you kick back and breathe in the fresh island air.

KONA BREWING PUB in Hawaii Kai on the island of OAHU is our second restaurant, right on the docks of Koko Marina.
Open since 2003, this location is inspired by a traditional Hawaiian canoe house. The pub is set on the docks of the Koko Marina and provides outstanding views of the marina and its lush, green backdrop. What’s more, the outdoor seating area and full length windows allow for a relaxed, airy atmosphere, and the 48-tap beer delivery system never disappoints.
