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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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...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: 1,002
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%

# 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!

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!

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.

We turned the dial down a little bit on the ABV, while also blasting the sweet, sweet hoppy music of the Samba hop. Pineapple & pear promenade harmoniously with a light dose of milk sugar to add some body & sweetness. Even if you have two left feet, you're gonna love it!

Brewed in collaboration with the Indian Creek Nature Center, and with honey sourced from their hives. A great, local collaboration makes a great, local beer. One dollar per pint is donated back to the ICNC.
