A Home Away From Home
In December 2003, Kona Brewing Company opened its second restaurant location at Koko Marina Center in Hawaii Kai on Oahu
The ~7,000-square-foot restaurant is set on the docks of Koko Marina, offers seating for 275 patrons and features a state-of-the-art beer delivery system with 24 taps. The restaurant is adorned with ohia posts, copper-mica light fixtures featuring Kona Brewing Company’s various beer logos, colored concrete, koa wood furnishing and the unique use of brewing equipment as functional decor – an old brew kettle and a retired brewery mash tun have been recycled as exterior signage and to form the exhaust hood for the pizza ovens located in the open air kitchen. Full-panel windows are retractable to provide an airy atmosphere throughout the restaurant. Ample outdoor seating with unparalleled views of Koko Marina and the lush green mountains that form Hawaii Kai’s backdrop also is available.
