Kona Pub & Brewery is a popular brewery and restaurant in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.
This is quite a large place and there was more than a half-hour wait to be seated on a Friday night.
All of the Kona Brewing Company beers are featured, as well as a secret "binder full of beer" with special batches and other limited-run brews. The beer and food are both amazing, especially the Pacifier IPA (much like Mammoth's Epic IPA) and the Lemongrass Luau which is a wheat beer brewed with sugar, ginger, and lemongrass.
Also quite good is the Koko Brown coconut ale that is also available on the mainland. Brewery tours, limited to 15 guests, are offered twice daily, seven days a week.
