Kona Brewing Company

Kona Brewing Company is an American craft brewery located in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii's Big Island, and the company was founded in 1994 with the first beers being sold in 1995. The beer is distributed through 28 states today, and it's the most popular craft beer in Hawaii. One of its most popular beers is Longboard Island Lager.

In 1994 Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa started Kona Brewing Company, and it was this father and son team's dream to create fresh, local beers inspired by the Hawaiian Islands. In 1995 the company introduced their first beers, Pacific Golden Ale, which is now known as Big Wave Golden Ale, and Fire Rock Pale Ale. Kona added Longboard Island Lager to its list of popular beers several years later, and in 1998 they opened Kona Pub and Brewery, their first brewpub. When building the pub the team strived to use local and salvaged materials. In 2003 Kona opened the Koko Marina Pub in Hawaii Kai in East Oahu and in 2008 it opened a location at Honolulu International Airport. In addition to its original brewery that's still in production on Hawaii's Big Island, Kona Brewing Company also produces bottled beer and mainland draft beer in several states as part of its partnership with Craft Brewers Alliance. The company prides itself on its sustainable and green operations, and it places heavy importance on maintaining the beauty of Hawaii through treating it well. In 2010 the company installed solar panels at its Kona Pub and Brewery. The beers of Kona Brewing Company are linked to the strong Hawaiian heritage that the company is proud to boast.

Kona Brewing Company features a list of distinctly Hawaiian beers, several of which include its Longboard Island Lager, Fire Rock Pale Ale and Koko Brown. Kona Brewing Company is growing and going strong today, and it's celebrated by many both in and outside of Hawaii.
