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.
Centaurus
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 5.5%
IBUs: 46

Score: 3.77
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: 1,091
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.

Great River Dark Maple Syrup? Yup! Saigon Cinnamon? Absolutely! Fresh Nutmeg? Why not?! This creamy, smooth black ale is beautifully balanced and complex. Just enough spice to get you ready for those cold months ahead.

# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.00
Fermented and aged in a blend of French Red Wine Barrels and American Fruited Whiskey Barrels for over 2 years, this beer has a pleasing acidity that blends well with some fruity residual sweetness and just a touch of tannic oak.

GAZPROM! (2018)
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
2016 GABF Bronze for Specialty Beer. Our Russian imperial Stout aged in Cedar Ridge bourbon barrels. 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.
Aldo

Score: 0.00
Fermented and aged in American Oak Whiskey Barrels for approximately 18 months, this beer has an intense acidity with undertones of chocolate, dark fruit and a light smokiness.
Comfy Pants

# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.00
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!

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.
The Disaster At Meux
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 5.8%
# Ratings: 3,087
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: 5.5%
IBUs: 24
# Ratings: 1,250
Score: 3.81
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!
Kundera Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 1,068
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: 999
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.
Živá Voda
Style: Pilsner - Czech
ABV: 4.7%
# Ratings: 910
Score: 3.50
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.
Bridge Beer
Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 3.6%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 902
Score: 3.44
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: 795
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.

Cucumber Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 541
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: 520
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.
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%

Brown porter with maple syrup aged in whiskey barrels.
Blood Orange Radler
Style: Shandy / Radler

# Ratings: 469
Score: 3.72
Our light, refreshing Bridge Beer blended with house made artisan Blood Orange Soda for a tart kick.
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: 417
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.
XXXX Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 398
Score: 4.08
Aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon and Rye Barrels, our take on a historic style of high alcohol Mild Ales. While it seems like a contradiction in terms, the XXXX Mild was a beer that existed in 1830 England before taxes dragged down alcohol levels in beer. Our XXXX is an homage to our world-class Compensation Mild and barrel-aged to make it just right.
