Nestled against Kamakahonu Bay, and overlooking theʻAhuʻena heiau, the Kona Brewer’s Festival offers an experience unique to Hawaii Island. Produced in the spirit of Pualu (working together) and Malama Pono (respecting the land), the festival draws thousands of people together to enjoy incredible craft beer, island style cuisine, great music and the company of good friends. Add to that the views of Kailua village and the trembling blue horizon of the Pacific Ocean, the stage is set for an authentic Hawaiian experience.

Since its humble beginning in 1996 to celebrate the creation of the Kona Brewing Company, the festival’s mission is to promote the craft brewing revolution in Hawai’i, encourage professional brewers and chefs to work together, and have a positive economic, educational and environmental effect on the Big Island community.

The Festival has grown to include a Brewer’s Pa’ina and art auction, a Home Brewers Competition, a golf tournament and a 5k run/walk. Over the past 19 years, the Kona Brewers Festival has become one of Hawaii’s premier events and has raised more than $650,000 for Big Island non-profit organizations working on behalf of children and the environment.
