About

Our brewery and gastro bar in Amsterdam is inspired by the outrageously good food scene in

South Africa and a love for German beer culture.

 

At THE LION’S HEAD GASTRO BAR & BREWERY we put the focus back on light, easy to drink beers and high

quality, hearty gastronomy! With a South African twist!

 

We are a husband and wife team from South Africa and Germany and  we welcome you to come over and grab a cold beer and an extra hot Peri Peri Chicken or Crispy Bavarian Pork Knuckle.

Shaun Mahon – Owner and brewer at The Lion’s Head
