If you want to keep sippable suds close at hand, consider offering a toast to a new community on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Purchasing a home at Kohanaiki—on the Kona coast—comes with access to the 67,000-square-foot clubhouse with its own microbrewery and taproom. It’s the first private residential club to debut an on-site brewery and tasting room.

There’s more: a bowling alley with glow lights at night and a Tiki vibe during the day, an intimate cinema, a wine locker with cellar dining, and a lap pool.

Under the tutelage of brew master Garrett Fitts, you can see how beer is made just a short walk from your back door.

“Garrett is incredibly passionate about it,” says Brodie Callendar, residential specialist and sales executive with Kohanaiki. “We have his beers on tap at many locations around the club.”

Prices for the community’s 38 homes start at $2.25 million and go up to $20 million. All are designed by Glazier Le Architects, known for designs focused on “modern tropical living with floor-to-ceiling windows,” says Callendar.

The single-story layout appeals to an older demographic.

“They want the real ‘Hawaii aloha’ experience,” says Callendar. “It’s a little bit more of a casual feel here.”

“Anybody who purchases real estate here would also become a member,” says Callendar. “It’s a very low-key and relaxed club experience.”

The active listings include a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 2,264-square-foot home for $3.5 million and a four-bedroom, 4.5-bath, 2,409-square-foot home for $4.5 million.

The homes offer three different floor plans, and key design features include separation between bedrooms (perfect when hosting guests) and large lanais.

“Pocket doors open everybody up for inside and outside living. We don’t get much rain here on the coast,” says Callendar.

Copper roofs and walls of Western red cedar and stucco blend into the natural surroundings. The living room and kitchen are designed as an open space to make it easy to entertain.

After a cold glass of beer, there are other amenities for residents to enjoy.

Snug on 1.5 miles of oceanfront, the area is home to one of the world’s best surf breaks (Kohanaiki Beach Park, often called “Pine Trees”). Residents can also sail out on a 39-foot boat anchored five minutes away in a nearby harbor.

The clubhouse offers a movie theater and spa. Outside, there’s a community biodynamic farm.

Will some buyers be attracted solely to the on-site brewery?

“This is just one more element to creating this space in Hawaii that is bar none. The only thing we don’t have is an ice-skating rink,” says Callendar. “Residents never have to leave if they don’t want to. We have everything here.”
