Yard Sale
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.7%

# Ratings: 3,892
Score: 3.85
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.
The Disaster At Meux
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 5.8%
# Ratings: 3,169
Score: 3.87
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.
Olde No. 17
Style: Stout - Irish Dry
ABV: 4.8%
IBUs: 24
# Ratings: 1,371
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!
Živá Voda
Style: Pilsner - Czech
ABV: 4.7%
# Ratings: 926
Score: 3.51
Živá Voda is named for the "living water" of Czech fairy tales that heals infirmities and counteracts spells. Brewed with floor-malted Bohemian barley and wheat which add subtle richness and accents of clover honey. The addition of Saaz hops throughout the run-off and long boil give this beer the distinctive earthiness and spice associated with authentic Pilsners. Lagered for six weeks and brought to you for St. Joe's Day and beyond.
GAZPROM! (2019)
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.00
2016 GABF Bronze Medal Winner for Specialty Beer. Viscous and black. After primary fermentation this oily, Russian giant is re-fermented with Iowa dark maple syrup in bourbon barrels then blended back together to add consistency and complexity.
King Cake (5th Anniversary Stout)

Comfy Pants
Style: Winter Warmer
ABV: 7.2%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 0.00
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!
Centaurus
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 5.5%
IBUs: 46
# Ratings: 1,650
Score: 3.76
Our summer session IPA is an ode to the half human, half bicycle creatures that roam the Iowa plains during these agreeable months. A huge dry-hopping of Loral and Columbus leaves a great citrus flavor and aroma, with just a bit of pleasant pine character.
Majestic Beast
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 6.2%
# Ratings: 1,216
Score: 4.13
This mirthful beverage was dry-hopped with Mosaic Lupulin Powder, as well as a bit of Simcoe and Eukanot. By using hop powder with the green plant material removed, we are dry-hopping a concentrated version of the aromatic oils found in the hops. Resinous and tropical; potent yet graceful. It may just bring a tear to your eye.
Kundera Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 1,081
Score: 3.66
Slight hop bitterness, pleasing European malt character and pleasant earthy German hop flavor and aroma. This beer is light, clean, low ABV and highly drinkable. Enjoy morning or night.

Imperial Märzen aged in rye whiskey barrels.
Iron Lion
Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 20
# Ratings: 1,000
Score: 3.64
A riff off of a Belgian classic with a Caribbean twist. Pilsner malts and a light Belgian yeast character play nicely with the citric cranberry nature of Hibiscus. Beet sugar lends a pleasant sweetness to the finish while effervescent carbonation keeps it dry and clean.
Bridge Beer
Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 3.6%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 962
Score: 3.45
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.
Coffee Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 4.7%
IBUs: 12
# Ratings: 797
Score: 3.89
Our GABF Gold Medal winning Compensation with a healthy dose of Organic Ethiopian Banko Natural Process beans, roasted by Kickapoo Roasters. This light coffee adds a great aroma and accentuates the fruity yeast character already found in this world-class English Mild.
Sticke Alt
Style: Altbier
ABV: 7.2%
IBUs: 30
# Ratings: 760
Score: 3.78
Sticke Alt has a pleasing bronze hue and a rich malt character. Finished with a slight bitterness and floral hop character that comes from a large, late addition of whole cone Hersbrucker hops.

Wild Turkey Bourbon barrel set the table, but the rich, malty brown ale is the main dish. This is a hearty Brew that we've had for Thanksgiving. Perfect for any celebration with friends and loved ones.
Cucumber Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 543
Score: 3.65
Lion Bridge Brewing Company teamed up with Bass Farms to brew this intriguing take on Kundera Kolsch. The brightness of fresh picked cucumbers plays with this summer beer. The result is refreshing and delightful.
Oktobot
Style: Märzen
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 522
Score: 3.82
A fusion beer with German and Czech roots in the recipe as well as in the name ("robot" is a word with Czech origins). Brewed in honor of the 1st Annual Czechtoberfest in Cedar Rapids. Munich and Dark Pilsener Malt provide the base, while Melanoidin richness satisfies. A hearty and highly drinkable beer for the season.
Untitled Saison
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 6.8%
# Ratings: 521
Score: 3.53
A simple and elegant farmhouse ale, featuring peppery dryness, aromas of apple and pear on the nose and some subtle earthiness. A refreshing beer for the heat of the Iowa summer.
Blood Orange Radler
Style: Shandy / Radler
ABV: 3.6%
# Ratings: 506
Score: 3.72
Our light, refreshing Bridge Beer blended with house made artisan Blood Orange Soda for a tart kick.
Coffee Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 496
Score: 3.90
Our Kundera Kölsch with a healthy dose of Direct Trade Nicaragua Divine Inspiration beans sourced by our friends at Ross Street Roasting. A beautiful trick of the eye. Light golden hue of a Kölsch, rich aromatics of freshly roasted coffee beans.
Maple Disaster
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 6.6%
# Ratings: 476

Brown porter with maple syrup aged in whiskey barrels.
Smoked Chocolate Stout
Style: Smoked Beer
ABV: 5.3%
# Ratings: 466
Score: 3.69
The velvety texture and flavor of the dark roasted "chocolate" malt is most definitely the centerpiece of this beer, but an addition of beechwood smoked barley throws in a subtle layer of complexity that makes you want to go back for another sip.
The Royal Wee
Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 418
Score: 4.07
A strong Scottish Ale. Malty, rich, slightly smoky. Aged in a mix of Cedar Ridge Peated Whiskey, Apple Brandy, and Dark Rum barrels.

Home Baked

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.
