Kona Brewpub celebrates 10th with concert


KAILUA-KONA — Kona Brewing Company’s Kona Brewpub will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a benefit concert Saturday, Dec. 13 featuring the Colin John Band teaming up with Nicole Fournier. The outdoor event will raise funds and collect new toys for the Jonathan Dale Miller Foundation.

The Colin John Band has been playing its original blend of blues, funk, soul and rock-and-roll to audiences all over the world since 1993.

The trio will join forces with Seattle blueswoman Nicole Fournier, who performed at the brewpub when it celebrated its first birthday nine years ago.

“Many of the regulars to our brewpub have been here since we opened 10 years ago,” said Mattson Davis, Kona Brewing Company’s President and CEO. “We are also happy once again to be teaming up with the Jonathan Dale Miller Foundation.”

Kona Brewing Company’s brewpub opened its doors for business in November 1998. The initial layout of the restaurant included the koa and mahogany bar that still graces the interior, a handful of indoor and outdoor tables and a small kitchen with a pizza oven.

In the last 10 years, business has boomed at the pub, necessitating several seating and kitchen expansions, the addition of air conditioning to the bar, an expanded retail area and the Growler Shack, where guests can purchase beer to-go.

The Jonathan Dale Miller Foundation is a non-profit organization that honors the final wish of 10-year-old Jonathan Miller – in his words, “feeding the hungry people and giving toys to kids at Christmas that wouldn’t usually get toys.”

Music begins at 9 p.m. Entrance to the Double Digit Double Trouble concert is $10 or a new unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more, with all gate proceeds and toys donated to the Jonathan Dale Miller Foundation.
