Hilo Brewing Company

A New Beginning

Established in 2018 from a longstanding tradition of brewing beer in Hilo, Hawaii, the Hilo Brewing Company produces and delivers the highest quality hand-crafted beer to hometown Hilo, and across the island state of Hawaii.  The Hilo Brewing Company Team has decades of  combined brewing and beverage experience and is ready to fill the Big Island beer void in the local marketplace.

Our brewmaster’s career spans over a decade in the craft beer industry. He studied chemistry in the beer-Mecca of San Diego, CA. Beginning his career interning for several southern California larger breweries, he was able to witness and understand the inner workings and operations of different types of brewing facilities and equipment, while learning from some of the brewing industry’s top masters.  Well traveled, he spent several in Europe and Mexico studying various beer styles and the nuances of brewing techniques.  As fate would have it, several years before working with Hilo Brewing Company, he purchased a one-way ticket to Hilo, and the Big Island would become home.  A member of Brewers Association, Brewmasters Association of America, The American Society of Brewing Chemists, a Level 2 Certified Cicerone, and a nationally registered Beer Judge.

Hilo Brewing Company has a Type-18 License and Tasting Room located at the Brewery.  The Hilo Brewing Company Tasting Room is open to the public and locals and visitors alike are encouraged to stop in for fantastic craft beer and a chance to “talk story” with the team.

Hilo Brewing Company prides itself in maintaining the highest quality control standards across brewing, sanitation, and of course the taste and freshness of our beer.  The signature tastes of Hilo Brewing Company’s beer all begin by using Hawaiian water which is rated in the top of the country and the rest of the world.

Hilo Brewing Company is positioned to be a dominating force in the local beer market and is beyond proud to have a beer Hilo can finally call “Hilo’s own.”

Hilo Brewing Company’s operations and capacity scalability is supported by Pacific Aqua Beverages LLC corporate administration and finance.
