I had the pleasure of going to Hawaii this November on a family trip. We flew to the island of Oahu and stayed in Waikiki. This trip would not be complete though without searching out as much craft beer as I could. This post is meant to help you find craft beer on the island of Oahu as well as link you to reviews of Hawaiian beer.
Whole Foods Market
4211 Waialae Avenue, Honolulu, HI
This location of Whole Foods has an amazing selection of craft beer from all over the world. They also have probably the best selection of craft beer brewed on the islands of Hawaii. The prices of the beer here are all competitive with every other store that I checked out. This was my go to place while in Oahu as I could walk to the store from where we stayed.
888 Kapahulu Avenue, Honolulu, HI
This location of Safeway does not have the best selection of craft beer but they do sell Hawaiian made craft beer in many sized cases.
333 Keahole Street, Honolulu, HI
This location of Costco carries mixed 24 packs of Kona Brewing Companies beer. You must be a member of Costco (any country) to shop here.
When in doubt any ABC location will stock at least one type of local craft beer in either 6 packs or in 22oz (650ml) bottles.
2335 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu (walk up from the street or Waikiki Beach)
Dukes has a good selection of Kona Brewing’s beer on tap. They offer a Surf Sampler of 4 local Hawaiian beer for $12.
