It’s hard to keep a good lion hidden, especially one powered by beer. This section of a Lion Red beer advertisement can be seen from The Square. It’s on the side of Rangit¯ıkei House at 89 Rangit¯ıkei St. John Batty has owned the building since June 2014. “The sign was there before we bought the building and was also covered over pre us,” he says. “One of the boards covering the sign has been taken down.” Until about four years ago, the sign was covered by large canvas banners. “Apart from that we know nothing about the beer sign’s history.”
