Update July 2014
This is not the usual drop-in brewpub. It's been a while coming but the Brewseum and the adjacent Beer Hall are now open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (after 4pm). The onsite brewery is not yet completed but HOTBBC brews are available in bottles. Currently they produce two craft beer styles that are available in local outlets and brewed under contract on the mainland. I have enjoyed both the Pilot Pale Ale and the Remember Pearl Harbor “1941” dark lager. The Brewseum taps will initially offer a variety of local and regional craft brews.
You enter the “pub” through a museum that displays a wealth of WWII memorabilia and provides associations to the R&R activities soldiers/sailors experienced in the Pacific theater. The Wiki Waki Woo is small bar located upstairs from the museum and includes a short bar and some table seating as well as an outside lanai covered by camouflage netting. The décor reflects the WWII theme and the taps sprout from an ammo box cooled by air circulated from the beer cooler on the first floor. There is also a recently completed Beer Hall with table and tall counter seating. On-site food service is limited but an evening food menu may be catered by a local food truck (similar to a war era mess trailer?). There is very little nearby parking so the be on the lookout for open spots on the surrounding streets. The Bus also provides regular service along Kapiolani Blvd and Ward Avenue, just a block away.
A lot will be changing as HOTBBC continues developing the local brewery theme so craft beer enthusiasts can follow the progress on Facebook or now stop by to pick up some swag and enjoy some great craft brews.
