The brewery began brewing and packaging beer in February 1995. Since that first year, beer production at the Kona facility has increased every year by a total of 585 percent. Several tanks and other brewing equipment have been added through the years to enable increased production. Today, the brewery consists of a mash tun, brew kettle, whirlpool, 10 fermenters, five conditioning tanks and two grain silos. A staff of six pumps 310,000 gallons of beer each year, filling the 4,000 kegs kept in circulation throughout Hawaii.
Brewery tours are available at the Kona brewery at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm seven days a week. Tours are limited to 15 people per tour and guests must be at least 13 years of age to participate. Due to space constraints and limited availability, we have a sign-in sheet at the Kona Pub and guests must be present to sign-up for the tour.
