BEER LIST
Yard Sale
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.7%
IBUs: 62
# Ratings: 2,970
Score: 3.88
A juicy flavor and a pungent, tangy, citrusy nose. 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: 2,763
Score: 3.89
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: 1,050
Score: 3.83
The official beer of the St. Patrick's Day Parade Society and 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. Slainte!
Coffee Kolsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 300
Score: 3.95
Our Herr of the Dog Kolsch with a healthy dose of Peruvian light roast coffee added before kegging. A delightfully different beer.
Barrel Aged Burnin Love (2017)
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
ABV: 7.9%

Barrel Aged Click Bait 2018
Style: IPA - Triple
ABV: 10.5%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 2.25
We have dabbled with Click Bait for a few years now, tweaking the hop profile and alcohol content and this is undoubtedly the best one yet. Aged in Cedar Ridge Single Malt Barrels for just one month to add a touch of oak and caramel, we then dry-hopped this beer with a very large amount of Denali and El Dorado hops. The result is something akin to a pineapple upside down cake in beer form.
GAZPROM! Rye Whiskey 2018
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
IBUs: 45
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.25
Viscous and black. After primary fermentation this oily, Russian giant is re-fermented with dark maple syrup in Cedar Ridge Rye Whiskey Barrels.

XXXX Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
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.
GAZPROM! 2018
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 0.00
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.
Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 4.5%
IBUs: 16
# Ratings: 4,943

Notes of biscuit, toffee, and chocolate meld with a silky mouthfeel to produce this fine session beer. Gold Medal at the 2014 & 2016 Great American Beer Festival
Centaurus
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 5.6%
IBUs: 46
# Ratings: 1,279
Score: 3.80
Our summer IPA is an ode to the half human, half bicycle creatures that pedal the Iowa plains during these agreeable months. A huge Centennial dry-hop leaves a great citrus flavor and aroma with just a bit of pleasant pine character.
Kundera Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 908
Score: 3.68
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.
Oktobot 3000
Style: Märzen
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 798
Score: 3.94
Imperial Oktoberfest aged in whiskey barrels.
Coffee Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 4.7%
IBUs: 12
# Ratings: 776
Score: 3.90
Our GABF gold medal winning Workman's 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.
Ziva Voda
Style: Pilsner - Czech
ABV: 4.7%
# Ratings: 762
Score: 3.49
Ziva Voda is named for the "living water" of Czech fairy tales that heals infirmities and counteracts spells. This cold-fermented ale is brewed with floor-malted Bohemian barley and wheat which add subtle richness and accents of clover honey. The addition of whole-cone Saaz hops throughout the run-off and long boil give this beer the distinctive earthiness and spice associated with authentic Pilsners.
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.
The Dangler
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 5.9%
# Ratings: 710

Iron Lion
Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale
ABV: 8.2%
IBUs: 20
# Ratings: 633
Score: 3.64
Belgian strong ale with hibiscus and ginger. Cranberry tartness on the nose with a slight heat from the ginger and alcohol content. Munich malt and Belgian esters meld nicely with the dryness of intriguing brew.
Bridge Beer
Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 3.6%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 627
Score: 3.42
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.
Gobble Wobble
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 8.5%
# Ratings: 610
Score: 4.02
Wild Turkey BA Brown Ale
Oktobot
Style: Märzen
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 520
Score: 3.83
A fusion beer with German and Czech roots in the name as well as in the recipe ("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.
Maple Disaster
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 6.6%
# Ratings: 472
Score: 3.98
Brown porter with maple syrup aged in whiskey barrels.
Smoked Chocolate Stout
Style: Smoked Beer
ABV: 5.3%
# Ratings: 465
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.
Untitled Saison
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 6.5%
# Ratings: 454
Score: 3.53
Peppery dryness and aromas of apple and pear dominate on the nose, while Amarillo and Saaz hops meld seamlessly with Bohemian Pilsner Malt to add complexity and fullness to the palate.
Cucumber Kölsch
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.6%
# Ratings: 413
Score: 3.70
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.
The Royal Wee
Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy
ABV: 8.2%
# Ratings: 406
Score: 4.08
A strong Scottish Ale. Malty, rich, slightly smoky. Aged in a mix of Cedar Ridge Peated Whiskey, Apple Brandy, and Dark Rum barrels.
Herr of the Dog
Style: Kölsch

# Ratings: 347
Score: 3.52
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.

Usonius
Style: California Common
ABV: 5.0%
IBUs: 12
# Ratings: 282
Score: 3.51
"Usonius" is Frank Lloyd Wright's term for that which is of the United States. Usonius is Lion Bridge's interpretation of steam beer, a beer style originating in the US. Rye adds texture and a subtle spiciness while wheat brings a creaminess to the table. A soured mash dries out the finish with a refreshing tartness. Finished off with citrusy Cascade and Sterling hops, this beer is an optimistic spring seasonal that is looking forward to warmer days.
