Kona Brewpub (Oahu)

7192 Kalaniana'ole Hwy
Honolulu, Hawaii 96825
808-396-5662
Wow, a brew kettle!
Located on the southwest corner of Oahu is one of very few brewpub style watering holes--this one from Kona Brewing Co.  

I'll just get this out of the way: Kona makes some exceptionally boring beer.  They aren't bad beers, per say, just completely unremarkable.  So unremarkable that most of this review is essentially a pile of crap.  Good thing we don't charge for subscription, huh?

These are the kind of beers you'd say to yourself "I guess this is technically a pale ale, but I don't really give a shit if it is or isn't."   I will admit, though, I enjoyed their ESB very much, but that's really it.  I guess I should've expected it given the similar experience I had with Wailua Wheat.

Wow, a tasting flight!

The food is pretty good though, but nothing worth raving over; in fact, I'd rather have a plate lunch from one of the five hundred shrimp trucks along Kameamea highway.  But, as a spot for a pre- or post-Sandys visit (about a mile away) this hits the spot nicely.

So, go get pounded by some ultra-mahalo shorebreak after a few pints... Um, actually, I don't recommend doing that because Sandys can get pretty heavy.  I guess just stay on dry land, you drunkards.
