Reviewed January 19, 2012

All of their beers are really good, but for a sweet treat on a cold winters day it is hard to beat the Lionsgate Winter Ale.

“Good example”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

ts a good example of a working brewery and the products are decent. Nothing earthshattering like Black Butte Porter from Bend OR, but decent.

“Winter Ale a must!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

GENUINELY enjoyed their Winter Ale! Tasted as though it had Vanilla in it, but the staff told us it was actually White Chocolate!!?!?! I can honestly say I would have never sought-out a 'Chocolate Beer', but to my surprise it was INCREDIBLE!
