HALF LION BEERS
THE RUGGED LUXURY OF REAL BEER
At Half Lion we brew beers for everyone. We use only the four main ingredients; water, barley, hops & yeast. With these four ingredients we have the flexibility to develop beers that allow you to taste each individual ingredient. From the initial smell to the final drink and all throughout, you can taste the quality of our handcrafted beers. We strive to buck trends and make beers that we know you can enjoy time and time again. Crafted taste and easy drinking is what makes Half Lion The Rugged Luxury of Real Beer.
In our tasting room we serve, along with our ever changing lineup of crafted brews, two rotating cider taps as well as a non-alcoholic rootbeer.
PECKENPAUGH HYBRID - 6% ABV 44 IBU
SINGLE HOP - MOSAIC
More than a Pale Ale but not yet an IPA. By using the triple-threat Mosaic hop we extract all elements; flavor, aroma & of course bitterness to give this Hybrid Ale it's unique profile. A touch of Rye Malt, helps that bite pop, and the rich burnt orange color shines from the Caramel Malt. The final result is a smooth and very satisfying, unique ale.
LOG SHOW BLONDE - 5% ABV 15 IBU
Cascade hops and a nice light base defines Log Show Blonde. Crisp and easy drinking, this beer is a great introduction into craft brew. But don't let the simplicity fool you. Each ingredient is nicely detected, allowing even the advanced craft beer drinker to enjoy this American Blonde.
TARGET TREE IPA - 6.1% ABV 80 IBU
Take a shot at this powerful NW IPA. It's bright copper color stands out amongst a dark forest of other NW IPAs. Initially, a subtle citrus aroma of Magnum hops, followed by a vibrant punch of a Warrior and Centennial bite. With just enough sweetness in the malt the Target Tree is definitely something you want to set your sights on.
ALBERT'S AMBER - 5.6% ABV 20 IBU
Changing things up a little bit we decided to dry hop this Amber Ale. Not traditionally done but we LOVE the flavor of hops. Albert's Amber is a mouthful of sweet, malty flavor that grabs your taste buds at the very end with the floral notes of those Cascade hops. The rich red color comes from just a touch of chocolate malt and it also happens to resemble the jacket that grandpa Albert used to wear.
SUNTOP IPA - 6.7% ABV 78 IBU
Just like the views form the fire lookout at the base of Mt. Rainier this will leave you wanting more. By using a light base of Pilsen Malt this IPA lets the hops really shine through. A fresh, fruity aroma from Mosaic hops are followed by the piney NW bite of Warrior. Climb on up, enjoy the view, and savor the Suntop.
ELK CAMP Kölsch - 4.5% ABV 12 IBU
Following Germany's Purity Law and using only 4 ingredients; water, barley, hops & yeast, this light bodied, clean and crisp Kölsch is a perfect beer for any day of the week. We kept things simple by using a touch of Vienna Malt to give this easy drinker a subtle biscuity flavor. At 12 IBUs we add just the right amount of German Tettnanger Hops to finish it off.
LAHAR STOUT - 5.8% ABV 20 IBU
Lahar is an Indonesian term for a volcanic mudflow and that's exactly what Lahar Stout resembles. With roasted barley and just enough Chocolate Malt, this is one of the thickest and darkest beers you will find. We've crafted a very smooth stout with coffee notes and a great hop finish. Try this beer on Nitro and really see the Lahar action.
