Our Story

Fierce pride since 1836

Lion Brewery Co is a Singaporean beer company with British heritage, dating back to 1836 London, where it was originally founded on the bank of the River Thames. For over a hundred years, the brewery produced high quality ales that were shipped across the seas to all parts of the globe, including Southeast Asia. When the brewery was demolished in 1949, the brewery’s two iconic lion statues, so loved by the people, were preserved at the request of King George VI. They can still be found in London today — one on the bank of the Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament, and the other at the entrance of Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby.

Fascinated by the brewery’s history of crafting beer for people for centuries, we picked up the mantle and brought Lion Brewery Co back to life in Singapore in 2018. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to brew beer enjoyed the world over, infused with the time-honoured traditions of the brewery’s history. 

Each beer is brewed with the same fierce pride — for where we’ve come from, and where we want to go.

The Beginning

Lion Brewery was built on the banks of the River Thames, on land then owned by the Archbishop of Canterbury. From here, during the birth of India Pale Ale, beer was shipped directly to trading posts around the world.

Demolition

Following a fire and in order to make way for what is now the Royal Festival Hall, the brewery was demolished. Britain’s then ruler, King George VI, requested that the iconic Lions, so loved by the establishment, be preserved forever.

Standing Proud and the other standing guard

The Lions remain steadfast: one adjacent to Westminster Bridge, opposite the Houses of Parliament, the other standing guard at the gates of Twickenham Stadium, the home of English Rugby.
