From brewing beginnings to a modern enterprise,
The Lion is one of South Australia's most iconic buildings.

Built in 1871, the Lion Brewery was a modern masterpiece of its time. It reflected the vibrant growth of South Australia and was known for producing quality, specially crafted beer.

Today, The Lion seamlessly blends contemporary architecture with the heritage fabric of the building to deliver The Lion experience that patrons know and love.
