Kona Brewing Co.

Kona Brewing Company is a brewery in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island. Now owned by Craft Brew Alliance and distributing in 36 states and 10 countries, Kona Brewing Company was started in the spring of 1994 by father and son team Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa.  Originally from Oregon, the pair saw a need to create fresh, locally made brews with the same spirit and passion for quality that existed in the Pacific Northwest.  They introduced Pacific Golden Ale (now called Big Wave Golden Ale) and Fire Rock Pale Ale to Hawaii in bottles and kegs in 1995 with Longboard Island Lager added three years later.  Approximately 10 other styles of beer are brewed on a regular basis and served at Kona Brewing Company’s pubs with a few being served in other restaurants all over the islands.  They also have three rotating seasonal brews in their Aloha Series including Koko Brown, Wailua Wheat and Pipeline Porter.
