The Lion is majestic and bold. It is a symbol of power and authority. Jesus the Christ is depicted as a Lion as well as a Lamb and it’s why we picked it to be the image of our brewery. “G” & “M” are also the initials of one of our heroes, Scottish author George Macdonald from the 1800s. We’ve honed our craft the last 10 years before the great adventure with Great Mane and hope you will enjoy the passion behind our beer just as much as we do.
