Minors in Pubs

Have had a look around the forum but can't find the answer to this question so ...

Are there places, such as alehouses, pubs, ect, where we can take our son, who is 14 years old, while we enjoy a beer and he has a soda. I am thinking of something similar to the laws in Oregon where you can go into a pub with your children and we would all need to either sit in a specific section or vacate the pub prior to a specified hour.

If there are, can you recommend some with outstanding craft beers.

Thanks,

BD

Good info, Jet!

The closest thing to an pub or alehouse in this area would be Kona Brewing Company, and minors are fine there. If you're into craft brewing you'll want to make a stop here to check it out - a dozen different brews on tap, and you can also get a lineup of 4 different 5 oz. samples.

Most all resort bars in Hawaii are set up with tables away from the actual bar where children are welcome to sit with their parents.

Thanks jet!

So they must serve full meals, not just pupus. Luckily Kona Brew does.

It's not in Kona, but SheaG recommends Big Island Brewhaus in Waimea, which I have yet to try but it's on my list. They do serve food.
