Default Hawaiian brew pubs

Are there any good brew pubs on Oahu. I know about Sam Choy's, Brew Moon and Gordon Birsch

I was in Hawaii last year and we went to Sam Choy's and Brew Moon. Both were pretty good. I thought Brew Moon had better beer, but Sam Choy's had better (and cheaper) food.

I didn't make it to Gordon Biersch when I was there, but I went to one in the chicago suburbs a few months ago and I think they have the best food and beer of the three. But Gordon Biersch is all across the country, so I'd stick with the local brew pubs while I was in Hawaii.

Oh yeah and be sure to drink lots of Kona, I wasn't disappointed with any of their beers (longboard was my favorite).

I believe Kona is on the big island. Not sure where Gordon Biersch is, but Brew Moon and Sam Choy are on Ohau, close to Waikiki beach.

Too bad you didn't go to the Gordon Biersch. I agree that of the 3 I mentioned they have the best beer. Gordon Biersch also has the best scenery as they are right on the water in Honolulu Harbor. And have outdoor tables so you can enjoy it alfresco.

Which Sam Choy's did you go to the Breakfast, Lunch and Crab on Nimitz Blvd or his more formal restaurant?

Thanks for the tip about the Kona pub guys. I found one on Oahu in Hawaii Kai at the Koko Marina. I can go over there and rub elbows with the rich folks.

I had seen the logo before and thought it was coffee.

thanks again

We went to the breakfast, lunch and crab on Nimitz. It's pretty cool, there's a big boat in the middle of the dining area.

About the only other major one in Oahu is the Yard house chain. Never got a chance to go there while I lived there http://www.yardhouse.com/location.asp?id=22. As far as beers go, Kona Brewing has some of the best (Longboard Lager).

Cool, thanks! I'll check it out when I go to Ala Moana.

We made it to the Kona Brew Pub in Hawai Kai on Oahu. I thought both the beer and food were Great we liked it so much we went there twice and wanted to go back for more.

Gordon Biersch: the beer's good and view's pretty good the lunch menu is reasonably priced and food is good, but dinner menu is way overpriced and the food only average at best. Can't really explain the difference between lunch and dinner but everytime I've been there for dinner I was disapointed and this trip was no exception.

Didn't make it by Yard house as I tried to stay away from the city as much as possible.

Thanks again for the tips
