Today we celebrate the Earth! From Mauka (mountains) to Makai (ocean), Kona Brewing Hawaii has put forth efforts to make this planet we call home a healthier place. Both our pubs are certified Ocean Friendly Restaurants (Mahalo Surfrider Foundation for all you do!) which means we have eliminated Styrofoam and plastic bags, implemented proper recycling techniques, and provide reusable tableware when dining in-house (and our to-go ware is biodegradable!).

Our new brewery in Kailua-Kona has its very own Resource Reclamation Center as well. With this, we significantly reduce our use of city water, reclaim any CO2 that is naturally produced during the brewing process (instead of letting out into the atmosphere), and majority of our brewery is run on solar. Since we opened our brewery in 1994, we’ve been giving our spent grain to local ranchers which they can use for feed.

This month in April 2021, $1.00 for every pint of Big Wave Golden Ale sold at our pubs will be donated to our friends at Hawai‘i Land Trust.

We think mother nature is pretty awesome and hope you do to. Mahalo to our planet and Happy Earth Day!
