Dessert for your desert island. Fudge and saigon cinnamon meld with a little bit of hazelnut goodness to produce something we liken to a cookie in beer form.
Compensation

Notes of biscuit, toffee, and chocolate meld with a silky mouthfeel to produce this world-class session beer. Gold Medal at the 2014 & 2016 Great American Beer Festival.
Yard Sale
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.7%
IBUs: 62
# Ratings: 4,530
Score: 3.84
Juicy flavor and a pungent, tangy nose of citrus and tropical fruit. A nice, clean bitterness paired with a slight alcohol heat and dry finish makes this an exceptionally easy drinking brew.
Disaster At Meux
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 5.8%
# Ratings: 3,419
Score: 3.86
Brewed to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Great Porter Flood of 1814 that occurred in London at the Meux Brewery. Biscuity, brown malt character and a bit of chocolate and coffee make this a nice, quaffable brew. Gold Medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.
Majestic Beast
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 7.8%
# Ratings: 1,795
Score: 4.10
This mirthful beverage was dry-hopped to be both resinous and tropical; potent yet graceful. The majesty of it may just bring a tear to your eye.
Olde No. 17
Style: Stout - Irish Dry
ABV: 4.8%
IBUs: 24
# Ratings: 1,492
Score: 3.80
The official beer of the Cedar Rapids St. Patrick's Day Parade Society (SaPaDaPaSo), and originally brewed to commemorate its 40th anniversary. This is the classic pub stout you know and love with a twist; 100 lbs of organic mashed potatoes were added during the brew to increase the dryness and slightly boost the alcohol. Roasty, with hints of dark chocolate, nuttiness and rich creamy mouthfeel. Sláinte!
The Spice Must Flow!
Style: Dark Ale
ABV: 7.0%
# Ratings: 1,286
Score: 4.06
Dark Maple Syrup? Yup! Saigon Cinnamon? Absolutely! Fresh Nutmeg? Why not?! This creamy, smooth black ale is beautifully balanced and complex. Just enough spice makes this luxurious treat so nice. He (or she, or they) who controls the Spice, controls the universe!
Bridge Beer
Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 3.6%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 1,249
Score: 3.43
Just an honest-to-goodness crushable beer. Bridge Beer is our take on light beer, with just a bit more panache. It doesn't demand hours of contemplation but you just might contemplate drinking it for hours.
TAG
Style: Wheat Beer - Other
ABV: 4.2%
# Ratings: 1,071
Score: 3.75
TAG...You're It! Inspired by German “Radlers” that combine beer and soda to produce a light and refreshing beverage. TAG is a juicy and slightly hazy American wheat beer with the zesty citrus bite of tangerine. Enjoy a TAG! Enjoy the Day!
Živá Voda
Style: Pilsner - Czech
ABV: 4.7%
# Ratings: 1,054
Score: 3.52
Named for the "living water" of Czech fairy tales that heals infirmities and counteracts spells. Bohemian Pilsner Malt adds subtle richness and accents of clover honey, while the addition of traditional Saaz hops throughout the run-off and long boil give this beer the distinctive earthiness and spice associated with authentic Pilsners. Lagered for 6 weeks and brought to you for St. Joe's Day and beyond.
Zack Morris Cell Phone
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 6.8%
# Ratings: 1,001
Score: 4.01
A mix of hops contribute a complex profile of dark fruit, stone fruit & tropical fruit, while restrained bitterness, a healthy dose of wheat & oats, and a touch of California sweet orange peel make this beer real tasty. Long ago, Quinton was at a bar in Colorado & asked an over-served gentleman what had put him in such a state. He replied, “The Zack Morris Cell Phone.” When Quinton attempted to order one himself, the bartender had no idea what he was talking about, and when he turned around, the man was gone. Over the ensuing years, no one else has ever heard of such a concoction. This IPA is our attempt to bring closure to this mystery.
Sticke Alt
Style: Altbier
ABV: 6.0%
IBUs: 30
# Ratings: 989
Score: 3.77
A traditional German Ale that has a pleasing bronze hue, a rich malt body and a pleasant noble hop character. "Sticke" means "secret" in German, and was named so as it was historically released to celebrate the loyal brewery patron. We aren't good at keeping secrets, but we are honored to have you enjoying Lion Bridge beer!
Blood Orange Radler
Style: Shandy / Radler
ABV: 3.6%
# Ratings: 684
Score: 3.72
Our light, refreshing Bridge Beer blended with house made artisan Blood Orange Soda for a tart kick.
Oktobot
Style: Märzen
ABV: 7.7%
# Ratings: 667
Score: 3.81
Our Imperial Märzen is a fusion brew with German and Czech roots in the recipe, as well as the name ("robot" is a word with Czech origins). Munich and Bohemian Pilsner Malt are the motherboard to this amped up version of the style, while a healthy dose of German hops provide fuel to keep it running. This is the non-barrel aged version. Look to Oktobot 3000 for even more power.
Comfy Pants
Style: Winter Warmer
ABV: 7.2%
# Ratings: 476
Score: 3.80
Work is done; go ahead and slip into something a little more comfortable with a pint of our English Strong Ale. This rich, full-bodied beer uses a wide array of malts to bring a complex flavor profile filled with dark fruits, caramel, and a touch of floral hops. Get Comfy!

Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
ABV: 11.0%

Columbus, Cascade & Simcoe come together in an ode to a classic IPA style with intense citrus and dank.
Down Gose Fraser
Style: Sour - Gose
ABV: 5.6%
# Ratings: 163
Score: 3.77
Tony Browning's 2nd place Gose recipe from our 2019 Wort Rally. Brewed with Pilsner Malt, wheat, Maldon sea salt and toasted coriander seed. This sour beer represents simplicity in its finest form. Tangy, bright and refreshing. And down it Gose!

Double Maple GAZPROM! (2020)
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial

It's a month of decadence, so we figured, why not? We upped the maple dosage on this GABF medal winning beer and the result speaks for itself.

Tropical, fruity hops abound, in tandem with a sweet, vanilla dessert flavor, and strawberry to top it off.
