Our favorite things in life, though not necessarily in this order, are great food; quality craft beer; fun, creative people; and live music. Big Island Brewhaus is a community gathering haus that combines all these treasures for our community and visitors to our island.
We create and serve locally sourced, fresh, handcrafted food that is as creative and delicious as the beers we brew. We work closely with local farmers, fishermen, cheese, bread & ice-cream makers and bee keepers (to name a few) whose quality products make our food as fresh and natural as possible. Keeping it small on the Big Island is one way to help sustain our beautiful island & world! We are honored to have be certified by the Surfrider Foundation as a Platinum Level Ocean Friendly Restaurant and to be the 2nd Blue Zone Approved restaurant on the island!
Our passionate, hard-working brewers have been consistently winning awards with the beers they produce in our 10 barrel brewhaus and they have fun doing what they do best — brewing world class beers one batch at a time. We offer a virtual world of beers: lagers, pilsners, porters, stouts, bocks, crème ales, Belgians and of course pale ales and IPAs – all that beg to be paired with our diverse, craft cuisine – turning an ordinary meal into an extraordinary experience.
Our most recent accolades include: a 2018 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal for Odin’s Sword, 2018 Bronze Medal for our White Mountain Porter in the U.S. Open Beer Championships, Men’s Journal’s included Overboard IPA in their list of “101 Best Beers in America” and we were included in Food & Wine’s January 2016 issue as one of their “20 Reasons to Love Hawaii Now”.
We started bottling in April 2013 and our three flagship, multi-medal winning beers; Overboard IPA, Golden Sabbath, and White Mountain Porter (as well as several seasonal beers) are available in share-worthy 22 oz bottles across our island and the State of Hawaii in liquor and grocery stores, restaurants and resorts!
