Lion Red is one of New Zealand's most popular beers and can trace its roots back to the pioneering days of brewing over 130 years ago. The name 'Lion Red' was first adopted by the public to describe the red coloured label and can. Lion Breweries responded by changing the official name from Lion Beer to Lion Red in the mid 1980s.
Lion Red is a full bodied, malt flavour beer that is balanced with a pleasant hop bitterness that appeals to all beer drinkers.
Lion Red's robust maltiness matches the full flavour of red meat dishes and it is the ideal drink with rich, hearty casseroles. Enjoy this great Kiwi classic with typical Kiwi lamb dishes and steaks.
