Our Story

From homebrewing in hot kitchens to becoming the fastest growing craft beer brand in Singapore.

brewING beer DESIGNED FOR THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN CLIMATE

Lion Brewery Co was founded in Singapore in December 2018 by us – Harry, Ben and Will. After years spent homebrewing in hot Singapore kitchens, we started out making beers that we wanted to drink – flavourful and sessionable brews tailored to the Southeast Asian climate, using only natural ingredients.

What we envisaged was a range of beers that were easier to drink than other overbearing craft alternatives, but still tastier and far more flavourful than bland commercial lagers. As it turns out, we had it right: a lot of other people wanted to drink those kinds of beer as well! After a few test batches, we officially launched our now iconic Straits Pale Ale, the first of our flagship beers.

GREAT BEER FOR GOOD PEOPLE

As the business grew and brewing operations began to seriously level up, Neo (yes, he really is the one) came onboard as our Brewmaster.

Fast forward to 2022, and we now have six core range beers – three Flagships, and three as part of our Brewer’s Series. In total, we have brewed over 60 different seasonal varieties and counting, as we continue in the craft beer tradition of innovation, experimentation, and creativity. We firmly believe in brewing beer that is better for both you and for the environment. Find out more about how our commitment to sustainability affects how we produce and sell our beers.

Best of all, we’ve had a lot of fun doing it, and we hope you feel the same way about drinking a Lion; since the very start, all that we’ve wanted is to make great beer for good people.

Lion Brewery Co is now available in five markets: Singapore, Indonesia, the UK, Hong Kong, and Cambodia. Click here to see where you can Find a Lion in SG.
