“Kona Brewing Company” was started in the spring of 1994 by father and son team Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa. Originally from Oregon, the pair saw a need to create unique, locally made brews with the same spirit and passion the equality that existed in the Pacific Northwest. Because of their great love for the Big Island, the Kona Coast in particular,
they wanted to build a business that would benefit the island and would not harm the pristine environment. The happy result of this dream is the brewery in Kailua-Kona.
“Kona Brewing Company” has been the leader in Hawaii’s microbrew category since 1996. It sells more microbrewed beer that any other craft brewery imported into the state.
