Half Lion Brewing

WineWhat’s rugged about Half Lion Brewing? For one thing, the tasting room was built out of recycled lumber, old saw blades, and shipping containers.

Born from a memorable night with friends and family—and sparked by a conversation about Great Danes being bred so large in order to hunt lions—Half Lion Brewing is a place where people come together. The brewery and tasting room feature a wide variety of Northwest-inspired ales both on draft and in cans. The dedicated food truck serves up burgers and bar food that pairs perfectly with the beer.

Explore the World of Half Lion Beer & Hard Seltzer

Hard SeltzerHalf Lion Brewing’s interactive website makes it fun and easy to find out where your favorite cans are sold using their convenient beer locator. Styles range from hazy IPAs to blonde ales and more, all of which draw inspiration from the Northwest region in which they grew.

A couple of popular options include the crisp Elk Camp Kölsch in a brightly-colored can, and the Wildfire Haze Hazy IPA. The Wildfire Haze is a New England-style IPA, and a portion of the proceeds go to supporting the brave wildfire fighters in the area.
