Mehana Brewing Company

Location: Mehana Brewery 275 East Kawili Street Hilo 96720

Website: http://Mehanabrewing.com

A great little secret right in downtown Hilo.  Kawilli Street is easy to find but the brewery is easy to miss.  Kawilli Street is just a couple blocks up from the airport.  Look for the Toyota dealer on the left.  You turn right and the brewery is a few short blocks in on the right side.  Look for the signage (see picture below).

They have a little tasting room and gift shop right in the brewery.  It’s a small operation, which is what makes it so nice.  They serve up a generous amount of samples from mild to bold.  The samples are all free!  It is fun to buy some beer that you have tasted and take it home.  It’s a great way to spend an hour.

The beer is great.  You will taste about 8 samples so there is certainly one that you will enjoy.  You can go big and buy a growler size bottle.

If you want to take a bit of the brewery home with you, in the same room they sell tee shirts and glassware.

Provides useful information as your beer tasting.
