Lion Brewery – Label Fun

I know many of you are not only fans of the Lion Brewery beers, but also tremendously interested in the long and rich history of the Lion Brewery brands and beverages.  In that light, I thought it would be fun to post up some of the historical, and not-so-historical labels and brands to come out of Lion Brewery.  I welcome submissions of photos or stories and I’ll post them up for all to see.  I’ll give whatever details I can on the time-frame/history of each label, but I’ll admit there are many I know very little about.  Without further delay I begin the Lion Label series.

This one comes in from the 1950’s and it’s Stegmaier Gold Medal Beer.

  1. This seems like a fine space to point this out: The Pocono beer lineup, made by Lion, has a label with a backdrop of mountains that are very clearly nowhere within 1,000 miles of the Poconos.

    Years ago, I wrote an email to the brewery about this. I never heard back.

  2. That's funny Jeff....I suspect the mountains were chosen more for design reasons and less for geographical accuracy....I'll have to see if I can find them so we can post them up.
