The Lowdown on Lions Summer Ale

We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of our beer family: say hello to Lions Summer Ale. The summer cousin to our famous Lions Winter Ale, it’s perfect after a paddle on the water or a hike up to you favourite lookout spot.

The Story

Some of the inspiration behind Lions Summer Ale comes from Lions Winter Ale; a brew which has become one of Canada’s favourite winter beers. As Winter Ale is made for cozy evenings beside the fireplace, Summer Ale is crafted for lazy days on a patio with friends and loved ones. It’s a beer that captures the laid-back spirit of a BC summer.

Tasting Notes

Lions Summer Ale comes in at 4.7% ABV. Brewed with passion fruit and pineapple juice, lively tropical fruit flavours are balanced with subtle biscuity notes. It finishes refreshing, and slightly tart.
