About Flying Lion Brewing

Flying Lion is a family operation in Columbia City, Seattle, conceived by four beer-loving brothers and our parents. It all started with root beer batches in the basement and dinner-table discussions about beer flavors and hop utilization. Years, beers, and many late nights later, we built the brewery we’d always dreamed of right here in south Seattle.

After opening in 2014, we’ve welcomed a few more craft-beer-loving people to the team, grown out of some of our old 3 bbl fermentors, added a bunch of taps, and started shipping our kegs around the city. We hope you’ll join us soon on this adventure we call Flying Lion Brewing!

Griffin
Griffin

Favorite Beer? Rye IPA
One of the brothers? Yes

Griffin grew up in Michigan watching thunderstorms and shoveling driveways, found a Geology degree, and found that it wasn't all peaches and cream. Then he moved to Seattle and started a brewery with his brothers! When not scheming new beers for Flying Lion, Griffin spends time in the woodshop, cycling, or napping on the roof.

Favorite Beer? Same Again IPA
One of the brothers? No

Adam grew up in the woods in Illinois, spending his time fishing, camping, and working in corn fields. He managed a degree in Brewing Technology and after a few years of brewing around western Washington he moved to a rural part of Ireland to build a brewery on a farm. Adam moved home for a variety of reasons, but it was mostly for the Same Again IPA and the Cubs. Adam is not Nick.

Nick
Nick

Favorite Beer? Anything Sour or Another IPA
One of the brothers? No

Nick grew up in Southeast Idaho without craft beer. He spent most of his time golfing and drinking that domestic stuff. He thought it was great until he tried craft beer. Nick worked on golf courses for 15 years in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington and even has a degree in Turf Management from Washington State University. GO COUGS! When Nick isn't peddling beer around town he spends time with his gal Allison and their English Bulldog Mayzee. Nick is not Adam.
