The Kona Brewers Festival celebrates 28 years, tapping up ales, lagers, seltzers and meads. The craft beer is served alongside island-style cuisine from the Big Island’s best restaurants. The sell-out event also features live music, hula and fashion.

What began as a beer festival with the goal of raising awareness for recycling has blossomed into one of Hawaii’s premier events. Dozens of community organizations work together to benefit each other while providing thousands of residents and visitors a chance to appreciate craft beer, island-style cuisine and spectacular live entertainment.
