US Craft Beer
Lion has a team of passionate brewers and co-workers in the United States, focusing on craft beer.
At the end of 2019, Lion acquired New Belgium Brewing, one of the leading craft breweries in the U.S., and in 2021 we also welcomed Bell’s Brewery to our pride.
Our US wine subsidiary, Distinguished Vineyards & Wine Partners, operates a vertically integrated business in premium wine. With a commitment to excellence, promoting social equity and advancing sustainability, our team produces wine and proudly farms more than 1,000 acres of sustainably certified estate vineyards across California and Oregon.
With distribution that spans all 50 U.S. states and Canada, our wine portfolio includes a collection of iconic wineries recognised as benchmarks for their regions, including Argyle Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, MacRostie Winery on the Sonoma Coast, and Markham Vineyards in the Napa Valley. Our team imports the award-winning wines of Wither Hills from Marlborough, New Zealand, and we represent the fast-growing, contemporary wine brands of TEXTBOOK Napa Valley and The Counselor from the Alexander Valley.
