Event Dining and Beverages

Each March, the Kona Brewers Festival brings the community together with a festive gathering celebrating craft brews. The festival brings in incredible brewers from across the country and the Pacific Islands. Your event ticket comes with tasting tokens so you can sample a variety of beers on tap at the event.

Alongside incredible beer, Kona Brewers Festival takes tremendous pride in offering the best local cuisine possible. With a host of chefs from the Big Island’s finest eating establishments, brew fans can enjoy fresh local dishes of every kind, and plenty of tasty bites to keep them satisfied throughout the event. General admission tickets are more affordable, but don’t include food samples this year so upgrade to VIP for the full experience, or you can purchase food on site for an additional fee.
