In 2021, our brand-new 30,000-square foot brewery opened as one of the most sustainable breweries in the world. Located just down the road from the original Kona brewery and brewpub, the new brewery will have an annual capacity of 100,000 barrels and includes a canning line so that we can package more of our island brews in this portable, lightweight package!
