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.
