10 Craft Breweries to Visit in Hawaii

SoCal knows a thing or two about craft beer, but the islands have some skin in the game too. Breweries on the islands range from big guys to small-fry and everything in between.



Published:

Kona Brewing Co.

What’s better than spending your teeny-tiny Friday sipping “liquid aloha?” Order up a Pipeline Porter or a Castaway IPA at Kona brewpubs on the Big Island and Oahu.

 

Home of the Brave Brewing Company

Check out what’s on tap at this nostalgic USO-style museum and brewseum full of World War II memorabilia, then head to the second-floor speakeasy.

 

Maui Brewing Co.

One of the bigger brewers on the islands, Maui keeps the focus on ales and lagers. Don’t miss the chance to tour the Kihei brewery and sample some of the finished product.

 

Big Island Brewhaus

Grab a growler to-go of Big Island’s nitro Coconut Cream Ale, made with hand-toasted coconut, and find a cure for your fish taco craving.

 

Kohola Brewery

Kohola, named for the Hawaiian word for whale, is known for its lagers and ales. Take a tour of the brewery in the heart of Lahaina or sip on a fruity Pineapple Blonde.

 

Beer Lab HI

This smaller craft brewery near the University of Hawaii at Manoa strives to create unique and sometimes experimental beers.

 

Waikiki Brewing Co.

Slip into a Skinny Jeans IPA as you watch the beermakers work their magic at the Honolulu neighborhood’s first brewery.

 

Kauai Beer Company

Try Kauai’s flagships, the Lihue Lager, a German-style lager, or head to the dark side with a Black Limousine Euro dark brew.

 

Honolulu Beerworks

This neighborhood brewpub uses locally sourced as well as interesting imports to brew its farmhouse ales and seasonal beers.

 

Aloha Beer Company

This locally owned and operated brewery in Honolulu offers several styles of beer, as well as craft cocktails and sharable dishes.
