The city of Springfield has a rich history in brewing; Springfield, Liberty and Commonwealth Brewing manufactured beer for the region in Springfield but closed in the late 1940’s. Unfortunately, there has been no brewing activity in New England’s 4th largest city for the past 70 years—despite the increased popularity of craft beer.
In 2014 the hiatus ended when White Lion Brewing Company introduced its portfolio of craft beers. White Lion, symbolic of the good in all man-kind and grace with limitless possibilities, has the necessary ingredients for a successful future. White Lion is a compelling brand with a commitment to becoming a vital part of the region’s renaissance; It’s time for Springfield to restore its proud brewing tradition.
The award-winning Mike Yates serves as White Lion’s Brew Master. Yates has been brewing in small and large brew houses for over 15 years and creating a portfolio of outstanding beers.
White Lion Brewing beers are sold throughout western and central Massachusetts in partnership with Williams Distributing, Quality Beverage and Girardi Distributors. All three distributors carry strong portfolios of national, regional and local beer brands and are active participants in the communities they serve.
