Founded in 1994, Kona Brewing started with a dream to create fresh, local island brews made with spirit, passion and quality. Because of their great love for Hawaii, Kona wanted to build a business that would benefit the island and not harm its pristine environment. The brewery was hence built to be solar-powered, uses only recyclable materials and is located near the mainland to reduce trucking needs. Today, Kona Brewing is Hawaii's most popular craft brewery and the locals even have a nickname for their refreshing brews: Liquid Aloha.
