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).

Under new ownership they now have a full bar with inside and outside seating.  They also have a small food selection (hot dog, chips/cheese, food box and sandwiches).  It’s a small operation, which is what makes it so nice.  The beer is great.  A flight of 8 samples is a favorite so there is certainly one that you will enjoy.  Then you can go big and buy a growler size bottle. It is fun to buy some beer that you have tasted and take it home.  It’s a great way to spend an hour.

They also have mixed drinks such as Margaritas and Bloody Marys.

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