Welcome to Flying Lion Brewing

Flying Lion is a family owned and operated brewery located in the heart of South Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood. Stop by our taproom to choose from 16 constantly changing and varied beers or look for our brews in local bars and restaurants!


After years of planning, Rainer Valley Food Bank (RVFB) has acquired a new building that will transform its ability to serve the growing demands of communities. While renovations take place, RVFB will continue providing meals with a dignified, temporary outdoor space - but they need a tent! This beer supports just that. $2 FROM EVERY PINT WILL BE USED TO PURCHASE A TENT FOR THE NEW RVFB INTERIM SPACE. RVFBrew # 7 Pale Ale (4.8% | 39 IBUs) is brewed with Idaho 7 & Citra hops plus a boil addition of bitter orange peel. This beer is bursting with citrusry aromas. It’s a feel good beer. It pays homage to the people and places of Rainier Valley and the #7 Metro Bus that connects and transports the South Seattle communityand is a lifeline for so many.

BEER LOVERS! Washington Pint Days is coming back! On December 2nd-4th breweries across the state will celebrate Washington Pint Days. All you have to do is go drink beer and bring home a cool new pint glass or two, or more. The glasses are exclusively available at participating breweries. Once the glasses are gone, they’re gone.

This custom glassware is a 16 oz. Libbey Willi Becher pint featuring “Experience WA Beer” themed graphics created by Blindtiger Design, a local creative, strategy, and marketing agency specializing in the unique needs of the craft beverage industry. Blindtiger Design is a creative partner for many of the brewery brands you recognize.

The goals of WA Pint Days are to encourage beer enthusiasts to get out and visit Washington craft brewery taprooms, and raise money to support our Guild.

In partnership with WA Brewers Guild member breweries and Grandstand, $1 from every glass will be donated to the WBG. WA Brewers Guild, is a grassroots organization that fosters a sense of community among the state’s breweries and also does the increasingly critical work of representing the brewing industry’s interest in Olympia. Additionally, our guild has been extremely active providing advocacy and education for WA breweries during the COVID-19 crisis.

So, bundle up and visit your local Washington craft brewery to celebrate WA Pint Days!

Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014. We've grown from our modest 6-beer list to a full 30+ beer, all weekend event complete with cellared favorites, special releases, and plenty of limited availability brews. We're talking all dark beer, all 3 days. If you haven't been, you're missing out.
