I just received the following from Lion Bridge Brewing’s newsletter. A beer dinner is coming up and the menu looks absolutely specular! A lot of great things happening at Lion Bridge and the Czech Village in Cedar Rapids, check them out! Here’s more:
Hello from Lion Bridge Brewing Company!
The taproom has been open for about 6 weeks now and we have been overwhelmed by the positive reception, and overwhelmed by the amount of beer we have gone through.
We would like to thank everyone who has been able to come in for a beer and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Look for a full battery of acoustic panels the next time you come in (should help make our old grocery store a little quieter), a patio will be put in here soon, and we are installing a projector so we can get a movie night up and running in the not-so-distant future.
We will keep you informed as we add new beers to our line up and we are excited to have our first beer dinner coming up. The dinner includes 5 courses and 5, half-pints of Lion Bridge beer.
Where: Lion Bridge Brewing Company
59 16th Avenue SW
Cedar Rapids, IA
When: Tuesday, May 6th @ 6:30pm
Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this email if you want to reserve a spot. Please include the number in your party and a contact phone number. We will call to confirm your spot later this week.
This is spur of the moment, and we are keeping it small, so please don’t hesitate.
Menu for this dinner is:-Bar Snack of toasted barley with mixed nuts

-Homemade Brewer’s Grain Bread with Local Butter and Radish(Živá Voda: Pilsner)

Now that our schedule is stabilizing, look for more email updates (but not too many) about new beers and events for the summer and beyond.
Thanks for your interest in local beer.
