Lion Brewery – Some Exciting New Toys

SabcoI just heard from Leo, and he tells me Lion Brewery just purchased a 1bbl Sabco system.  The system will be used for brewing test batches and one-off brews.  For those unfamiliar, the Sabco system is used and endorsed by Sam Calagione from Dogfish Head.  DFH uses it to test many of their brews before they go into large scale brewing.  This is very exciting news for local craft beer lovers, and I think it adds considerable flexibility for Lion allowing them to experiment and create some interesting and potentially small-batch beers.  Cheers guys…please keep us up to date.

Here’s a little tidbit that I had never seen before.  Check out the Lion Brewery label and be sure to read why it’s named “Half.”  Interesting huh?
