Half Lion Public House opens at Kent’s Riverbend Golf Complex

Company also has Sumner brewery

The Half Lion Public House is open for business at the city of Kent’s Riverbend Golf Complex.

Sumner-based Half Lion Brewing Co., opened the restaurant/bar on Wednesday at 2019 W. Meeker St. It offers American pub fare along with Half Lion’s handcrafted beers. Half Lion also offers a beverage cart for service on the 18-hole course.

The company opened in Sumner in February 2016. Half Lion beer is on tap at more than 200 locations from Tukwila to Olympia.

The name comes not from a lion, but a Great Dane, which owners Jason Nelson, David Westby and Adam Shay explain on the company’s website at halflion.com.

The Kent City Council unanimously approved a 10-year lease agreement in January with Half Lion. The lease has three, five-year options. No restaurant has operated at the facility since March 2017 when Scotch and Vine closed.

Half Lion Public House hours:

Monday through Thursday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Friday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Saturday: 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
