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.
Beer At Work
Style: IPA - International
ABV: 7.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.25
Hazy and heavily dry-hopped with Australian Ella and Vic Secret hops, this beer exhibits strong tropical fruit flavors known to come from the land down under, where women glow and men plunder. Cheers, mate!
Home Baked
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
ABV: 11.0%

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.
GAZPROM! (Unoaked) (2017)
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial

ABV: 6.5%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
In collaboration with the Indian Creek Nature Center, we sustainably harvested 12lbs of spruce tips in the Spring and added them to a pale ale recipe. The result is a festive and delicious beer for the season that is bursting with citrus and pine.
Biere De Garde (2nd Anniversary Beer)
Style: Bière de Garde
ABV: 8.6%

Brewed with piloncillo sugar and aged in French Oak barrels. Hints of anise and brown sugar, a tannic mouthfeel and a rewarding alcohol heat. Brewed and bottled to commemorate Lion Bridge's 2nd Anniversary.
Be Kind, Rewind
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 6.5%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
Rewind to a simpler beer time when pale ales had some caramel malt presence and a perfectly integrated hop character. Not too much, not too little; just right. A great beer for a pint...or two.
Yard Sale
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.7%
IBUs: 62
# Ratings: 3,776
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: 3,109
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.
Centaurus
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 5.5%
IBUs: 46
# Ratings: 1,641
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.
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!
Majestic Beast
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 6.2%
# Ratings: 1,184
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: 1,073
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.
Coffee Compensation
Style: English Mild Ale
ABV: 4.7%
IBUs: 12
# Ratings: 796
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.

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: 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.
Blood Orange Radler
Style: Shandy / Radler
ABV: 3.6%
# Ratings: 479
Score: 3.72
Our light, refreshing Bridge Beer blended with house made artisan Blood Orange Soda for a tart kick.
Maple Disaster

# Ratings: 475
Score: 3.98
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: 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.
The Spice Must Flow!
Style: Spiced / Herbed Beer
ABV: 8.0%
# Ratings: 399
Score: 4.11
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.
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.
