Kona Life

We love how our beer brings people together, but can’t deny the fact that living and working in Hawaii is a very special thing. It is our kuleana (responsibility) to respect the environment and appreciate those who also make sustainability a focus. We support those who help our communities during trying times. We’ve even brewed beers that helped to support local fundraisers. This is a place for all of that. It’s about the people, places and groups who make Hawaii what it is. It’s a place to showcase our friends and how Kona Brewing Hawaii connects with our communities here. And, yep, sometimes it’s about beer too.

As part of our MAKANA Local Giving Program, we are proud to partner with artist @thelocalbrandco_la who designed a fresh take at our Longboard Island Lager and Big Wave Golden Ale labels. As a Kailua boy and surfer himself, he was inspired to showcase two of our most iconic brands, while paying homage to Hawaii’s classic and timeless surf culture.
