Columbia City is about to welcome Flying Lion Brewing, a new brewery that bumps up against ice cream shop Full Tilt on Rainier Ave. WA Beer Blog reports that brewers use a bicycle-powered grain mill in the beer making process. First pours include Sweet Potato Porter, Rye Stout, Pale Ale, IPA, Belgian Strong, and Red Rye Session.

The owners, "four beer-loving brothers," began brewing root beer as kids; their food chemist father got them into making beer as adults. Flying Lion officially opens October 22.
