The Kona Brewers Festival
March 14, 2020
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.
Each of 36 breweries from Hawaii and the mainland United States taps up two types of beer, ranging in style and flavor to delight the palate of every craft beer connoisseur. Chefs from 36 of the Big Island’s top restaurants serve sweet and savory tastes of island-style food, from fresh fish and barbecued meats to decadent desserts. A hula and blessing kick off the event. A stage with live music entertains festival-goers throughout the day. The annual Trash Fashion Show, designed to raise environmental awareness, shows off attire made entirely from recycled material.
The Festival includes a Home Brewers Competition and the ever popular Run for Hops 5k run/walk. Over the past 25 years, the Kona Brewers Festival has become one of Hawaii’s premier events and has raised 1.3 million dollars for Big Island non-profit organizations. Join us in raising pints and funds for a better world!
