I just got back from Christmas in New Jersey, where I drank a lager
called Bunker Hill, brewed by 'The Lion, Inc., Wilkes-Barre'. Does
anyone know about this beer or the brewery? I'd never heard of it, and
I thought the hoppiness was just right.

I haven't had the opportunity to try Bunker Hill ;-(, but The Lion
is a brewery in Wilkes Barre that does a lot of contract brewing.
One brew that they make is all the Hope Lager, Red Rooster Ale,
Christmas Ale, etc... for the Hope Brewery in Providence, RI.
They do a good job of contract brewing, as Hope has done well
in various judgings and is doing well locally.

The Lion also brews its own brands - like Bartel's - which are not
as good the contract brews. I tried a Bartel's recently and found
it to be rather weak in flavor - but I remember Bartel's from about
15 years ago as having a stronger yeast/malt taste.
